Blue August Launches New EP

COLUMBUS, OHIO – Blue August Launches New EP

“Continuing the emotional storytelling through music.”

Blue August – the award winning local independent band is releasing their debut EP to all digital download locations on Friday Sept 30th.

Originating from Columbus Ohio, Blue August is hard hitting rock songs with amazing musicianship. The two Stephen’s, Stephen Davy and Stephen Jones trade off on vocals as they perform songs with such soul and passion; rarely seen on the independent scene. Jay Ott provides amazing guitar skills to help paint the artwork while Anthony S. Anselmo’s synths provides the grounding for the tapestries.

With such richness, combined with imaginative and thoughtful lyrics, Blue August combines a bit of the old and the new. With elements of Classic and Modern rock, Blue August’s sound transverses through the ages of Rock history.

The new EP provides a great new example and a more reflective example of the Blue August sound. Produced by Jim Cummings of Soundstage Productions in Climax Michigan, “the new EP literally jumps out of the headphones!” says Drummer Stephen Davy.

“We feel this new EP really reflects what we are capable of doing and are extremely proud of the sound quality.” continues Davy. “Jim did an amazing job of capturing our unique sound.”

Two singles “Promise” and “Heart like Stone” have been released to the public and already received critical acclaim. Likewise a documentary of the making of the EP will be released later this year.

“We’re working on a throughly funny and entertaining documentary of the progress of coming together as as a band and making the album,” says Keyboardist Anthony S. Anselmo. “I think it is a great insight to the hard work and effort that goes into a band and the dedication one has.”

The album can be found a http://blueaugust.bandcamp.com for digital download. The album will be available for purchase and download on Oct 30th from ITunes, Amazon and streaming on Spotify.
