UPSTREAM is the most collaborative and diverse collection of songs The Rationales have recorded yet, the record marks the debut of newest Rationale Adam Hand on Pedal Steel, features songwriting contributions from several members of the band reinforcing singer-songwriter David Mirabella's anthemic material.
New Songs include album centerpieces such as the 'Big Star meets Greg Dulli' rock of "Trade You," the seven minute "Climb the Ladder," (featuring lead vocals by drummer Mike Mirabella during a sprawling breakdown penned by Mirabella, Lieb, and Mirabella) and the epic "Dulcinea", (a song exploring the location of the line between regret and fantasy), the quiet urgency of "Under the Gun" and the R.E.M. meets Cheap Trick rock of "Ready to Go" - along with the previously digital-only released advance singles "All the While" and "Take a Ride with me" both of which feature additional recording and remixing.
The Rationales will release UPSTREAM on August 3 at Boston's storied Middle East Downstairs Club. Advance tickets are onsale now.
