Eight years, thousands of miles, a thousand shows, three releases — and an expanse of musical progression and evolution — separate Sound&Shape’s scorching debut album and their newest release, Bad Actors.

Defining new vectors in songwriting and performance, Bad Actors reveals a more mature band, confidently exploring the domains denoted by its name. They understand the prevailing rules, and abandon them as the real story demands. Drawing from influences both classic and contemporary, Sound&Shape use their predecessors’ work as a springboard, not a blueprint. There can be no doubt about the fact that they pay homage to the greats of the 60’s and 70’s, yet there is a distinctly modern edge throughout — and a sense of identity rarely found in most of today’s bands. Labeling persists: indie rock? Garage? Prog? Alternative? The answer may be an emphatic yes to all.

Helmed by the returning production team of Grammy-winning producer/engineer Casey Wood and seasoned multi-platinum selling producer Matthew McCauley, Bad Actors reveals the band in its element, fusing battle scars with vulnerable admissions. From the opening track’s rallying cry for revolution (The Laughing Lovers), through triumphant riffs (Bad Actors), to the lost youth and innocence of
the closing track (Curtain Call), the album carries us across luminous constellations of life’s images, arcing us back, just barely in time for sunup.

This is Rock and Roll in, and for, the 21st century, with its heart firmly rooted in the time and space of the legends that inspire it.
