Fruition’s newest album, Broken at the Break of Day, shines a light on all five members of the band, whether it’s on the traded lead vocals of “Dawn” or the irresistible rhythms of “Where Can I Turn.” As it’s been for more than a decade, their sound is hard to define, but the songwriting and the harmonies tie their diverse influences together.

For example, “Counting the Days” is a poignant love letter, while “For You” shows the exasperation of maintaining a relationship on the road. The band’s most electrifying rock moment, “Do What You Want,” is then followed by “Nothing More Than Spinning,” which sounds like a folk song interpreted by Queen. The stunning vocal blend heard in “At the End of the Day” brings Broken at the Break of Day to its beautiful and touching conclusion.

Although it’s a challenge to categorize, the seven-song album feels whole because of the band’s dedication to honesty as well as harmony. The Portland, Oregon-based band is composed of Jay Cobb Anderson (electric guitar, vocals), Kellen Asebroek (piano, acoustic guitar vocals), Jeff Leonard (bass), Mimi Naja (mandolin, electric guitar, vocals) and Tyler Thompson (drums). Broken at the Break of Day, recorded in Thompson’s basement in between tour dates, follows the band’s exceptional 2019 album, Wild as the Night.

“This process was the quickest the band had ever wrote and recorded the songs,” Thompson says. “All the songs obviously fit either a ‘day’ or ‘night’ theme, but the whole rehearsing and recording process had to be done in about half the amount of time we were used to. That time limitation leant us to not over think things, play instinctually and all live in the studio with very minimal overdubs. All the songs are very different, but I think the speedy process naturally created some sonic congruency.”

The prolific band will release Wild as the Night and Broken at the Break of Day together on vinyl as well, giving listeners the option to hear the music as a collective body of work in a playlist-focused era.

“From a visibility standpoint, being able to release more music more often (even if it is in smaller doses) is ideal in the new frontier of digital music that we have found ourselves smack dab in the middle of,” Asebroek says. “It’s nice to be able to stay on people’s radar, in an age where people have instant access to the whole of music history at their fingertips. It’s also nice to put these out together on vinyl as a nod to the way things once were”

With a renewed focus on harnessing the energy of the live experience, Wild as the Night and Broken at the Break of Day allow listeners to get a glimpse of all five band members doing what they do best on stage, whether they’re opening for the Wood Brothers, Greensky Bluegrass, and Jack Johnson, or playing at festivals like Telluride Bluegrass, Bonnaroo, and DelFest.

Their unmistakable vocal blend first revealed itself in 2008 when Anderson tagged along with Asebroek and Naja for an afternoon of busking in Portland. Drawing on their string-band influences early on, they released their debut album Hawthorne Hoedown that same year. Thompson joined the band in 2011, shortly after hearing the band members singing together in a friend’s attic. Leonard came on board in 2015. Broken at the Break of Day is the band’s tenth release, including EPs and LPs.

“We pushed ourselves like never before. But in the end it all turned out great,” Anderson says about the sessions for Broken at the Break of Day. “It was a bit more of a hectic process to get things done and recorded. I can’t believe it sounds so good, when we did it all so fast.”

Fri, Mar 06, 2020 6:00 PM - Fri, Mar 06, 2020 9:00 PM @ Circle City Industrial Complex

Soundspace – the new co-working facility for musicians, complete with a recording space, all under one roof – is excited to bring you this new monthly First Friday Showcase series powered by Sam Ash Music Stores at Centerpoint Brewing in the Circle City Industrial Complex!

February’s showcase features performances by:

* Caldera – Band

Caldera is an alternative/progressive/rock band hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana. Formed in May of 2017, Bassist Daniel Minnerick and drummer Ryan Cox invited guitarist Jesse Pryner to join them in starting from scratch to create a new, explosive sound. 18 months later, vocalist Trisha Krall joined the group bringing raw emotion and thought-provoking lyrical content. The group strives to create music overflowing with personal conviction and unapologetic aesthetic. Every Caldera song chases that collective dream and design: to be a fresh sound for rock music. The band explores the prosody of their music through tone, color, and negative space inviting listeners to surrender to selfish indulgence, emotional release, and genuine experience.

Caldera’s emotionally charged, hard-hitting rock can be found on all social media platforms. Their music is available now for purchase, download, and streaming everywhere.

* War On TV

War On TV is an experimental hard rock band from Indianapolis. The band’s songs “Chrysanthemum” and “Komm” have been extensively featured on underground and internet radio stations, and their music has been featured on television networks like MTV, A&E, and Discovery. The band is currently booking a tour in support of the release of their upcoming album, “War On TV”.
