Dallas based Shapes Stars Make return with a new single, and a new drummer, with their first release since last year's full length "These Mountains Are Safe". The single "Into His Ghost" has been released via the band's Bandcamp page as a 'name your price' download, meaning it's technically free, but the option to throw something their way in exchange for new music is there.
This marks the first recording new drummer Stephen Hudson appears on. Hudson also engineered and mixed the track. "These Mountains Are Safe" was among the many fine releases of 2010, and you can find my enthusiastic review of it here. The new single continues in the direction of that album, with singing guitars, a melodic vocal by Michael Gooden and the powerful drumming of Hudson.
The trio of Gooden, Hudson and Jon Cook plan to continue to record new material, as well as hit the road for some shows in the fall. Hopefully another full length album is in the works for the future. You can download or stream the track below.
