“Get Loud” by Trails and Ways

Trails and Ways premiered their new song “Get Loud” yesterday morning. “Get Loud” is the third track – following “My Things” and “Happiness” – released off the Oakland, CA-based band’s sophomore album Own It, which will be released on October 7, 2016.

The band – the core duo of singer/guitarist Keith Brower Brown and drummer Ian Quirk, joined by Alycia Lang (guitar/keys/vocals) and Miriam Speyer (bass/vocals) live – will head out on an extensive U.S. tour next month, beginning October 13th in Los Angeles, CA. The run will continue through December 3rd in Seattle, WA and also includes October 28th and October 29th shows in New York and Brooklyn, NY, respectively. A current itinerary is below.

The product of a wrenching year following Trails and Ways’ debut album Pathology (Barsuk 2015), Own It chronicles an attempt at self-transformation through lush, hook-laden songs. At the end of seven months of touring, two longtime bandmates decided to leave, while frontman Keith Brower Brown’s long-term relationship hit its breaking point. The upheaval knocked him flat, and pushed him towards a tough evaluation of his own flaws and how they could have contributed to these collapses. While backpacking across the Sierra Nevada, traveling Baja California and Louisiana, he confronted deep-set selfishness and self-protective vanity in the hope of making something from the mess.
