Nashville, TN indie/emo rock band Pale Lungs are releasing their self titled debut LP on January 13, 2023. The new album will contain 11 moody tracks of layered guitar leads over melodic atmospheric indie/emo rock, that will please fans of bands like Moving Mountains, Death Cab For Cutie, Copeland, and Better Off. There is plenty to go around on their new LP, with high energy rockers to more somber slow burners. Most of the songs contain twinkly guitars but the band also showcase their southern roots with the occasional guitar twang and other layered instrumentation. The songs on their self titled LP spread the gamut of early/mid 2000s emo-nostalgia and alternative rock with 5th wave emo revival, also fitting nicely alongside more recent bands like Overgrow, Arms Length and Valleyheart.

About Pale Lungs:

Pale Lungs found its start in the Spring of 2016 in and around the Nashville DIY music scene. In the years to come, they gained notoriety touring in support of their early works including their debut EP, “Strawberry”, and follow-up EP, “Grow Towards The Sun”. In their early years, Pale Lungs considered themselves to be a live band, with most of their navigation through the world of music being done so through their live performances. During 2020, as their touring plans were put on hold, the group adjusted their creative framework and reimagined what it looked like to be an “active band”. From that point on much of their creative output was largely self-produced, releasing two stand alone singles, “Right Where You Left Me” and “Corners”; featuring a more stripped back and songwriting-focused approach to the band’s sound. These songs also introduced the voice of Marty Crawford who would later join the band as an official member. In the spring of 2021, Pale Lungs packed up their gear and holed up in a cabin where they self-produced and recorded what would become their self-titled full length LP. A record that would distill several years of songwriting and growth into their most expansive and fully realized project to date. Pale Lungs’ self-titled LP is out January 13th, 2023
