SEATTLE, WA...October 28, 2008...
After a successful debut in 2007 (Secondhand Dreaming) and extensive touring with Switchfoot and Relient K (2007 "Appetite for Construction Tour with Habitat for Humanity") as well as Emery, Ruth is proud to return with their sophomore release today.
Titled after the British slang definition of an obsessive enthusiast, Anorak is a reference to a person who has an unfathomable interest in something and feels compelled to talk at length about it. Written primarily at rest stops and hotels, Anorak captures the emotions and experiences of watching dreams come true and others fall beyond reach. Anorak is at once challenging and yet simple to understand, recalling the best of '80s radio, '90's English pop and contemporary indie without sounding derivative of any particular genre. Ruth is currently on tour with Decemberadio, dates can be found on their MySpace.
Here are some early reviews:
"The consistency in which they are able to deliver solid, heartfelt rock easily makes them one of the best acts on Tooth and Nail Records' star-studded roster." --JesusFreakHideout.com
"The beauty is in the details and the ability to keep getting more and more out of the seemingly simplistic tracks. The hooks are done in such as way that they don't get tired, but end up carrying more weight after time. "Back To The Five" is one of the first songs I fell in love with and one that I keep going back to over and over again." --Thealbumproject.net

Other titles released today on Tooth & Nail Records:
Starflyer 59, Dial M
Over ten albums deep, over fifteen years time, Starflyer 59 is and always will be a band who will deliver great songs with new sounds. But who are you going to call when you need a deeply emotional, personal album confronting loss with faith and candor? Dial M for Martin... Jason Martin, the band's vocalist, producer, and songwriter explains, "I always wanted to do a record of solo tracks and call it 'Dial M for Martin." But because this is such a candid record for me I decided to lend that idea as the title for this. I dealt with some very difficult tests when I was working on this...the loss of someone very close to me. This record deals with that loss." For more information go to their MySpace.
Emery, While Hearts Prevail EP
In no need of introduction, Emery delivers an EP that proves why they wear the crown of the Rock/Screamo scene. Returning to the spirit of their debut release, "While Broken Hearts Prevail" has the raw intensity and energy that no amount of production or studio time can imitate. The EP is in some way a return to the roots of the band, balancing their blend of heart wrenching choruses with chest pounding bridges and awe inspiring honesty. Emery has shown their musical abilities time and time again, and have left no question of who does it best on "While Broken Hearts Prevail." For more information go to their MySpace.
