Fruition are known for their gentle, folk-rooted studio albums but at the same time their contrary raucous, load and rockin' live shows. Catch them at 20thCentury Theatre on Wednesday, October 17th!
Fruition just released a new EP called Fire featuring three tracks from the same session in which they recorded their latest album Watching It All Fall Apart which was produced by Tucker Martine (First Aid Kit, My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists).The new album Watching It All Fall Apart and now their EP Fire finally see the band bringing that live sound into the studio.
In the new album, Fruition transform pain and heartache into something truly glorious. With their songwriting sharper and more nuanced than ever before—and their sonic palette more daringly expansive—the Portland, Oregon-based band’s full-hearted intensity ultimately gives the album a transcendent power.
“The songs are mostly breakup songs,” says Asebroek. “There was love and now it’s gone—we fucked it up, or some outside circumstance brought it to an end. It’s about dealing with all that but still having hope in your heart, even if you’re feeling a little lost and jaded.”
