Sky Eats Airplane Sets 7/22 Release Date

Fort Worth, TX natives, SKY EATS AIRPLANE, and Equal Vision Records have set a July 22, 2008 release date for their self-titled full length album. The 11-track set was recorded at the beginning of the year with producer, Brian McTernan (Circa Survive, Hot Water Music) at his studio in Baltimore.

“Brian helped us out with a lot of great vocal ideas and definitely opened up new pathways we can take,” says guitarist, Lee Duck, of the experience. “We are still a very new band – our first show as a full band was March 2007. It was amazing to work with someone who could help us find our sound without trying to make us someone we weren’t.”

The band also had some assistance in designing artwork for the self-titled release: Evan Leake of Palebird Studios (The Academy Is Almost Here, Classic Case Losing At Life). “He specializes in incorporating real pictures with complex artwork,” explains Duck on the decision to have Leake design the artwork for the forthcoming full-length. “We were having a hard time thinking of what album art would fit for an album self titled as ”Sky Eats Airplane”. And of course, the obvious imagery comes to mind of a cheesy sky eating an airplane, or something that makes this album seem more of a square children’s book than an actual record,” Duck adds. “We have always been talking about a concept idea for our album with essentially something organic evolving into something mechanical, but we didn’t realize how much that fits for this release.”

The band will on the road in the month surrounding the album release. As previously announced, the band will join the final three weeks of the 2008 Vans Warped Tour and has now also added a co-headliner to their schedule with A Skylit Drive (Tragic Hero) kicking off June 26 in Las Vegas, NC. The tour will keep the band on the road through the end of July and features Breathe Carolina (Rise) and Memphis May Fire (Trustkill) for support.

This past March marked the one year anniversary of the band as a five-piece. In discussing the band’s progression over the past year Duck states, “Music wise, we were a band who came from heavily mechanical roots, and to come from that to now, it is almost as if something born one thing has turned into a totally different animal. Most bands will say they have matured, but we have been born.”
