Philadelphia-based singer-songwriter Dave Hause is proud to announce the premiere of his new album titled Devour. Streaming exclusively with The Wall Street Journal, Devour, Hause’s second solo album that will be released through Rise Records, can now be heard in its entirety one week before its proper release on Tuesday, October 8. Check out the full-album stream HERE.
In addition to the exclusive album stream, Dave Hause has also announced an East and West coast run of in-store performances to promote Devour. Beginning in Fords, NJ on October 9 at Vintage Vinyl, the tour will take in a handful of performances at stores such as Main Street Music in Philadelphia, PA on October 12, M-Theory Music in San Diego, CA on October 14, Origami Vinyl in Los Angeles, CA on October 16 and will culminate in an appearance at Silver Platters in Seattle, WA on October 20. Hause will also be making an appearance on WXPN‘s World Café on Friday, October 4 and will be performing two sold-out hometown shows at the First Unitarian Side Chapel in Philadelphia on release day, Tuesday, October 8. Information on tickets can be found on his official website: http://www.davehause.com.
Recorded at Grandmaster Recorders LTD In Hollywood, CA, and produced by Andrew Alekel and Mitchell Townsend, Devour finds Hause examining various emotions and connections through the duration of the album sequence. Beginning with “Damascus,” the song is meant to establish the notion that things don’t always work out the way we hope, which then leads into tracks that explain the reasons why (“The Great Depression,” “We Could Be Kings”). Through the remaining songs, Hause considers the changing of personal relationships due to the loss of faith and scope, all while looking to determine a silver lining of hope as well as the belief that love, creativity and belief in yourself will get you through it all.
On a break from The Loved Ones, Dave Hause’s Philadelphia-based rock band, he wrote and recorded the 10 songs that would result in Resolutions, his debut solo album that would go on to consume two full years of his personal and professional life. With the release of the album, Hause found himself touring North America, Europe and the UK multiple times, visiting Australia and even having the opportunity to play a rare show in Hawaii for the first time. In addition to performing on two Revival Tours, supporting The Gaslight Anthem on three tours and opening for the legendary Social Distortion on a recent month-long stint, the upcoming release of Devour is sure to find Hause touring incessantly through the remainder of 2013 and beyond.
