Never Shout Never, aka Christofer Drew and his fellow bandmates,will release their brand new, highly-anticipated studio album, entitled Black Cat, on August 7th via Warner Bros. Records. The album will be available for pre-order starting today, June 9th. The first single from the album “Hey! We OK,” will be available as an instant download for those who pre-order. 

Christofer, now just 24 years old, has been writing, recording and touring for nearly a decade and has become one of the most respected young songwriting forces of his generation. He began writing the songs that would appear on Black Cat in 2013, and brought an arsenal of tunes with him to the studio in 2014. Working over several months in Los Angeles with producer, Dennis Herring (Elvis Costello, Modest Mouse) and the band, two things happened that were firsts for Never Shout Never: (1) Christofer welcomed both the band and Herring to write with him, and (2) he embraced a preproduction process that helped them to shape and mold the songs before recording. Both practices proved inspirational and vital to the full, epic sound of Black Cat.

“This is our first fully realized album,” says Christofer. “It felt like we had the training wheels on for a long time. I was a lot more open to ideas from other people than I ever have been which I feel is me hitting a certain maturity level. I had this epiphany that great things come from a lot of great minds coming together, and I was more open this time. I think it’s cool how it turned out; it’s maybe more pop than we expected but I dig it.”
