Our Lady Peace, who made Billboard Hot 100 debut with their 2002 single "Somewhere Out There", are gearing up to release their new studio effort "Burn Burn" across U.S. on Tuesday, July 21. Produced by their frontman Raine Maida, the album is "a little bit mature, but a proper rock record." It will carry ten new songs with two additional bonus tracks.
Commenting on why he steps behind production table instead of hiring longtime producer Bob Rock for the job, Raine said, "I was always involved, even with Bob [who produced 2002's 'Gravity' and 2005's 'Healthy in Paranoid Times']. I'm not a control freak by any means, but I've always had a vision of the music and how it should be." He added, "I do think collaboration is a very important thing. I have a high regard for collaboration. It's just the timing of this, and where I'm at and where the band's at, we're much better served doing it ourselves. It's really exciting."
The first single from the album is a guitar driven song titled "All You Did Was Save My Life" which has been released in Canada on May 25, and in the U.S. on June 9. Its music video is directed by Scott Weintrob and features actress Shenae Grimes as a cameo.
On the day Our Lady Peace's new album arrives in stores, fans can catch their live performance at New York City's Irving Plaza. Fans can also attend their shows at Virgin Festival on July 25 and X-Fest on August 8, just to name some. Those who want complete details on their forthcoming shows can visit their MySpace.
