Baltimore band Fractal Cat turns to darker sounds and themes with its third album of all-original material.
The album release party took place at WTMD radio station in Towson, MD on January 26, 2017, and was broadcast live on radio and online at wtmd.org with a studio audience. The album's first single “Have I Lost My Way” is in regular rotation on the station since its early December release, and has been added on radio stations from across the county.
Inspired by the Tarot card of the same name, The Tower defines the time of a radical breakdown of illusion, when a revolutionary force casts forth all that’s been hidden, and illusory walls of comfort and complacency are stripped away. Using dreamlike imagery to speak to urgent social and political matters, this collection of songs synthesizes the timely and the timeless into a passionate and surreal vision for today's world. The album was produced by Frank Marchand and songwriter Miles Gannett, and was mastered by Bob Olhsson of Motown fame.
