Introducing Astral Drive

Astral Drive is songwriter and producer Phil Thornalley’s vision of a long lost
album from the 1970s that only existed in his own mind. A labour of love that
is very much the statement of a lifelong music fan living in the modern world.
He may not be a household name but many of the records he’s made with artists
as diverse as The Cure, Psychedelic Furs, The Jam, Duran Duran, Paul McCartney,
and Natalie Imbruglia (he produced and co-wrote her worldwide smash “Torn”)
certainly hold a special place in the hearts and ears of millions
Astral Drive is more than just a trip down memory lane, and Phil’s lyrics express
many of the hard won truths acquired during his decades inside (and outside)
the studio, to form an honest statement of where he’s at today. The ten tracks on
Astral Drive were lovingly crafted by Thornalley himself, aiming for almighty feel
over technical accuracy, and using mostly second or third takes, with occasional augmentations by his Bryan Adams band mates, drummer Mickey Curry, keyboardist
Gary Breit, and guitarist Keith Scott. He even found a way to include some key
backing vocals from Utopia’s Kasim Sulton, with whom he has frequently written in
the past.

Palace of Rock presents The Story Changes with members of Hawthorne Heights and The Stereo

‘To Hell With this Delicate Equation’, the new album from Story Changes is an energetic blend of late 90’s/early 2000’s emo, modern rock, and a moody aggressiveness that supplies a gritty edge in all the right places. 

Embracing their DIY upbringing, the band spent their blocks of time home in between tours throughout 2018 building a new studio in McMillon's (Vocals/Guitar) home and recording the album there free from distractions and any sort of deadline. The singer explains, “For me, it was really important to take our time on this record and work on it over the last year when we had pockets of time that didn’t feel rushed. Building the studio here and recording it at home was both scary and exhilarating. Once we got past the initial fear of doing it ourself, it was completely freeing and an absolute rush.” 
With that freedom came the extra time to dive in and experiment more than ever. McMillon notes: “I really wanted to try some different approaches with my voice on these songs and had a lot of fun layering my normal singing voice with additional whispers, screaming, and everything in between.” The “whisper effect”, as it has become dubbed by band, adds a sort of haunting effect that becomes a theme throughout the album and ties many of the songs together. The addition of screaming in select moments also helps to drive the album even further. The end result is twelve songs of honest, energetic, moody and aggressive rock that make ‘To Hell With this Delicate Equation’ sound equally at home in both 2019 and 1999. 

The album is available at: https://thestorychanges.bandcamp.com/album/to-hell-with-this-delicate-equation

Through the trials we go through each day of our lives, we understand how difficult it can be to carry the heavy weight of this world. We cannot do it alone. Our purpose is to let it be known of the one who truly can lift us out of the pit in our darkest hours.
