June 17, 2010 - Nashville, TN – Making it an even dozen, iconic indie rock act The Choir announces the release of their 12th studio disc, Burning Like the Midnight Sun, on June 29th. Produced by band members Steve Hindalong and Derri Daughtery, the album was recorded and mixed at Daugherty’s Sled Dog Studio in Franklin, Tenn., and will be released on the band’s own Galaxy21 Music label.

Boasting a history that spans nearly three decades, The Choir features founders Hindalong and Daugherty along with long time members Dan Michaels and Tim Chandler, and once again Marc Byrd who produced the band’s ‘05 release O How the Mighty Have Fallen. This critically-acclaimed lineup continues to garner praise and accolades – including Dove Awards and a Grammy nod -- long after most other bands have burned out or faded away.

“Perhaps more than any other album by The Choir, Burning Like the Midnight Sun integrates the musical personalities of all five individuals,” Hindalong says. “The recording process was smooth and satisfying. We’re thrilled to offer it to our listening friends.”

In recent months, the band has given fans a peek inside the recording process by releasing a series of “in the studio” videos online. The finished product, Burning Like the Midnight Sun, will be available physically online through www.thechoir.net and sold at live shows. It will also be available for download & streaming on iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster and other digital service providers.

Always the innovators, the band continues to find new ways to get their music to the masses. Their die-hard fan base has already responded enthusiastically to pre-order packages that include a "director's cut" audio interview CD, mix stems so fans can create their own productions of the songs that the band will post and share online, as well as a VIP gathering at Michaels’ Nashville home featuring an acoustic concert, swim party and barbecue.

Complementing this beautiful new music is a cover image by New Orleans-based visual artist R.R. Lyon, known for using salvaged or reclaimed pieces of his own art that he re-contextualizes to give new purpose.

In addition to their work with The Choir, band members have found success in other areas. Hindalong has become what CCM Magazine describes as one of the five most influential producers in Nashville for his work on the groundbreaking City On A Hill worship series, which also featured songwriting by Daugherty (“Beautiful Scandalous Night”) and Byrd (“God Of Wonders”). Hindalong and Daugherty continue to produce, write, engineer and perform, while each member follows their own individual creative pursuits.
