Posted on facebook, The Narrative talked about the production of the song "Toe the Line" with a video, that we talked about a long ago, when the band where still on the barn, recording the new album. Check out the post bellow and also the video featured in the post. If you can't open it, click here.
For those of you curious about how a song goes from an idea to a recording... there are many steps along the way, but this video was shot during one of the final stages of workshopping Toe the Line before recording it. Just guitar, keys, drums, and one crappy iphone filter. At this point the intention is really just to run through the song and make sure there's nothing sticking out as strange or bad, and also to get warmed up on some still freshly written parts before having to record them! Anyway, we found this footage from way back when and wanted to share it. The beautiful boy behind the drums is Jay Scalchunes from Peru The Band.
This Wednesday, The Narrative premiered their last song, off from the upcoming album, "Toe the Line". The song featuring the known male-female vocals and instrumental with banjo, that will make you fall in love with them even more. So, AbsolutePunk.net, friends with them for a long time, got our backs and release the song.
This Thursday, The Narrative posted on facebook about the new song "Toe the Line" and its release date. The song will be released in January 27, 2016 on AbsolutePunk.net. Check out the song cover bellow:

Formed nearly a decade ago in Long Island, New York, indie pop/rock duo The Narrative sprung onto the scene in 2008 with their debut EP, Just Say Yes, and continued to build buzz with their 2010 full-length, self-titled debut. Several successful tour outings, tons of media praise, and a loyal fanbase forged from DIY ethics characterized the following years, but the band have been relatively quiet since the 2012 release of their b-sides compilation, B-Sides and Seasides. Ready for some good news? The Narrative’s long-awaited sophomore LP will arrive early this year, and we have a brand new track, “Moving Out,” exclusively streaming below!
The Narrative began work on their upcoming album in 2012, with sessions in a barn in upstate New York that took longer than planned, as they began recording lots of different instruments and more complex arrangements. Life outside of the band also pulled the duo in different directions, with guitarist/vocalist Jesse Gabriel’s release of a solo album, and keyboardist/vocalist Suzie Zeldin’s involvement in Chris Carrabba-fronted folk rock outfit Twin Forks. It’s been a long road, but after a year spent mixing with Richard Flack in the UK, and mastering from Sam Moses in Nashville, the album is finally finished, and will soon be released.
The band are now partially, soon to be fully, based in Nashville, so in addition to new music, you can almost surely expect to see some live dates in the near future. We’ll keep you posted! Stream “Moving Out” below.
The Narrative have posted the lyrics of their new song "Moving Out" on their Official Website, and you can read to it bellow. "Moving Out" will be released this Tuesday, 01/12.
I wanna get out of the suburbs Let my hair grow wild And find a place I don't need money Just to raise a child I wanna die out in the forest With my face in the earth And if my daughter never loves me Then I want it to hurt I see the city try to swallow What I used to call home I see it blanketing the streets Now they're covered in gold But in the corners where the light Never seemed to lay still I see a group of angry kids And they're looking to kill! I see a group of angry kids And they're looking to kill! And oh, I see it now We'll all be moving out When all the kingdoms fall We'll finally see it all You know I used to laugh a lot With my friends in the dark And now they only hear the clock So we don't even talk And there are diamonds in our pockets And they're dying to be sold But if you're searching for the dollar Then you'll only find coal! If you're searching for the dollar Then you'll only find coal! And oh, I see it now We'll all be moving out When all the kingdoms fall We'll finally see it all My, my When will it end? Just take my hungry body To the woods again Show my eyes The rising sun Bury me in everything We started from I wanna get out of the suburbs Let my hair grow wild So I can gather up the earth And pass it down to my child
