AQUEOUS ANNOUNCES ‘COLOR WHEEL,’ THEIR LATEST STUDIO EFFORT DUE OUT OCTOBER 12, 2018

Aug 29 2018

VINYL PRE-ORDER HAPPENING NOW

BAND WILL EMBARK ON THEIR MOST
EXTENSIVE HEADLINING TOUR THIS FALL

For Immediate Release:

On October 12th, 2018, fans of the Buffalo-based act Aqueous will have a new reason to rejoice; Color Wheel, the quartet’s first full-length studio record since 2014’s Cycles, will finally hit shelves. This time, on vinyl, too,

Color Wheel feels like a step forward for the band in every way,” shares Aqueous guitarist/keyboardist David Loss. “We tapped into a distinctly more emotional and purposeful space when writing it, and there’s a raw honesty throughout the album’s lyrics and themes that I think a lot of people can relate to. Though some of those themes are a little heavier, there’s a constant thread of hopeful optimism that we hope people will really connect with. Musically, the band has evolved and Color Wheelfinds us exploring some new and very exciting musical lanes.”

Of the album’s 10 tracks, virtually every song has remained unheard – except for “Second Sight” and “Weight of the Word” which have quickly become crowdpleasers in the band’s live catalog. Even still, both tracks have received fresh studio treatment and the Turkuaz Horns were invited to record on the latest rendition of the latter.

Color Wheel Tracklisting:
1. Second Sight
2. How High You Fly
3. Realize Your Light
4. Split The Difference
5. Color Wheel
6. Good Enough
7. Half In, Half out
8. Weight Of The Word (feat. Turkuaz Horns)
9. Mandela Effect
10. In It (For Me)

Pegging this record as a concept album, Aqueous will be releasing the 10 tracks in a unique way, presenting three waves of batches with the first wave due out as soon as next week. “There’s a certain continuity to this entire album, and it unfolds in a way that makes the track order important for the experience – there’s an underlying narrative happening throughout the lyrics and themes, and the overarching theme of the story is a strong sense of optimism through the struggle of the realities of life,” adds Aqueous guitarist Mike Gantzer. He continues, “For this reason, we wanted to release the album in waves, ultimately, to give people a chance to settle into each section of the album and digest it thoroughly before diving into the next.”

Pre-order for Color Wheel on vinyl is happening now via the band’s Bandcamp page: https://bit.ly/2wuxFrT.
