The four-part album is available everywhere now via AWAL/Jungle Youth Records.
Since the last album, “Mirror Master,” three of the band members became fathers. With lyrics mostly written by the band’s lead singer, Sameer Gadhia – the son of Indian immigrants – the album tells the multigenerational saga of the American immigrant, and the origins, exiles, battles, and denouement of reclaiming their collective identity.
Gadhia previously said, “This is not just the story of an Indian-American caught in between two worlds, it’s also our universal search to find meaning in chaos.”
The album was co-produced by John Hill (Santigold, M.I.A., Phantogram, Khalid) and the members of Young The Giant.
Young The Giant was established in 2004 and is comprised of Gadhia (vocals), Jacob Tilley (guitar), Eric Cannata (guitar), Francois Comtois (drums) and Payam Doostzadeh (bass).
