Jacksonville, Florida's EVERGREEN TERRACE has finalized the track listing for its new full-length album, "Almost Home", due out September 29 via Metal Blade Records.
Continuing its blistering combination of melodic hardcore and metal, EVERGREEN TERRACE has gone back to its roots on "Almost Home". "I think this record will surprise the new listeners as well as have the old ones stoked," stated guitarist Josh James. " I'd say its best described as a good mixture of 'Burned Alive by Time'  and 'Wolfbiker' ."
Splitting the recording process of the album in half, the band tracked all the music at Martell Studios and all of the vocals at AudioHammer (AUGUST BURNS RED, BURY YOUR DEAD, TRIVIUM, etc.).
"We've always had a lot of pop culture references in our song titles and this record is no exception," said James. "Before we even started writing new songs, we already have a list of titles from books, movies, and comedians. Half of the song titles on this record are pulled from the lyrics. The others are pop culture references that relate to the lyrical content."
"Almost Home" track listing:
01. Enemy Sex
02. Almost Home (III)
03. God Rocky is This Your Face?
04. We're Always Losing Blood
05. Sending Signals
06. Mario Speedwagon
07. Failure to Operate
08. Hopelessly Hopeless
09. The Letdown
10. I'm a Bulletproof Tiger
11. Not Good Enough
With a new record coming out, EVERGREEN TERRACE has taken its album title into consideration and hit the road again. The band will be out on tour with EMMURE as part of the Hard Knock Life tour for the entire month of September, with dates running from September 2 through September 29. Also on the bill are STICK TO YOUR GUNS, FOR TODAY, and OCEANO.
"My brother Caleb, who plays with me in CASEY JONES, will be filling in on drums on this tour while Kyle is recovering from his bike accident," said James. "We're excited about playing cities that we've never played, as well as heading back out west to play some places we haven't been to since Warped Tour 2008. We're really pumped to push the new record and play some new songs."
The band will end the tour October 3 with a headlining CD-release show in Jacksonville with an all-star lineup, including THE CHARIOT, BURDEN OF A DAY, CASEY JONES, THICK AS BLOOD and HELLO DANGER.
