Release Date: Sep 22, 2017
Record label: Warner Bros.
There comes a time in pretty much every band's career when they have to make the decision. Bigger than their look. Bigger than album artwork and song titles or which record label to go with (if they even want one). They have to decide whether to continue with what's working, or to strike out in search of something more. To stick or twist.
Gossip doesn't fall in line with the post-hardcore that catapulted the band into the scene, nor does it contain quite as many of Kellin Quinn's famous high-pitched runs as fans might expect. What it does deliver is a new soulful confidence best shown on tracks like the acoustic "One Man Army" and the infectious first single "Legends," where Quinn expertly conveys finding the light at the end of the darkest tunnel. Gossip succeeds in delivering an inspirational array of tracks that, as a whole, are a natural progression (and successful foray) into the mainstream.
