Restorations share “The Red Door” from ‘LP5000′
Philly heartland punks Restorations recently announced that they’ll release their fourth album, LP5000, on September 28 via Tiny Engines (pre-order), their first for the label since their 2011 self-titled debut (following two albums on SideOneDummy). Today, they released the first single, “The Red Door.” It’s a bit of a return to the rawer sound of the band’s earlier days, following the atmospheric LP3, but it’s still a colossal rock anthem that sounds ready to be howled from rooftops. As for the premise of this song, singer Jon Loudon tells NPR: “Philadelphia (and perhaps your town, too?) is rapidly changing. I wonder about where people go when they can’t afford to live in these new neighborhoods anymore. The red doors on all the new buildings feels like some kind of warning sign.” Listen below.
As mentioned, Restorations have upcoming live shows, including Boston on 6/27 with Frank Turner and Jeff Rosenstock (sold out), Providence on 6/28, NYC on 6/29 with Dave Hause (tickets), and Jersey City on 6/30 with Tim Barry and Roger Harvey (tickets).
