New Music / Tour From Carbon Leaf

Carbon Leaf News

Richmond, Virginia rockers, Carbon Leaf have done it again, as they are set to release the re-imagining of their 2006 release Love Loss Hope Repeat on August 3rd with their new album Love Love Hope Repeat Reneaux (LLHRR). This re-recording follows the band’s successful approach with Indian Summer Revisited last summer.

We spoke to frontman Barry Privett just before they re-recorded Indian Summer last year, and he offered some interesting insight into the band’s thought process for the re-imagined albums: “Indian Summer was turning 10 years old, and the label still owned the master recording, but not the songs themselves, so what better way to celebrate than re-record the album – which legally we were now permitted to do – and return the project back into Carbon Leaf’s control. Fans were very enthused by it, and of course the original album still exists. We had a lot of fun making it, and have been around for 21 years, so we’d like to do this with all of our older material, and introduce the music to new fans who may not be familiar with some of it. It’s a great thing to do in between writing and recording new material…”

“After coming off of a successful two year tour behind Indian Summer (2004), the label was eager to keep momentum going so we dove head first into the studio without really having the new songs developed,” says Privett. “Underdeveloped songs coupled with an extremely small window for recording resulted in an album of songs we believed in, but that just didn’t reach their recorded potential. For this re-recording, we get the chance to address all of the things we didn’t like, or that didn’t work the first time.”
