After having successfully released two previous albums, We Aren’t The Champions in 2009 and This Logic Will Destroy Us in 2011 Tallboy www.facebook.com/Tallboymusic gears up to release their third installment “Expectations and Resentment”, and have decided to give the fans / public a single “Subtle” before the hard release on July 24th, 2012.
It’s become evident that the direction of writing with lyrics and composition has evolved based on the fans response to the prior releases. Staying true to their high energy music definitely runs con-current with Tallboy’s exhausting off the hook live show that can be described as a hyperactive Tasmanian Devil out to cause mayhem and chaos in the constant use of antics that involve the fans directly. Expectations and Resentment will deliver 11 powerfully insane tracks with the lineup and order TBA in the CD Press Release … July. "Through our constant struggle to explain our surroundings and the people in it we bring you our new chapter, "Expectations and Resentments. Our new single "Subtle" defines the child in us all, escaping the judgement of the rest. With this onslaught of riffs, it's like a high five to the face.... with a brick." quotes Jimmy Roberts, Tallboy's frontman and lead singer.
Tallboy gave their fans a jolt and teased them with few new tasty treats in untested waters at the show finale of Tortured Souls Tour, April 28th at the Hawthorn Theatre in Portland Oregon. Having never performed at this venue, it was a true test for Tallboy and they certainly did not disappoint as the crowd loved every second of the outrageous stage show. You can hear the new song Subtle here at www.reverbnation.com/tallboy. Tallboy recently signed to Rage On Stage Management where in the next month plans for a short run tour supporting the CD release will be announced. Frank James, President of ROSM www.rageonstagemgmt.com says “It’s one of the most exciting bands I’ve had the pleasure of working with. The undeniable talent and musicianship that Tallboy brings to our roster simply expands our horizons to higher levels.”
