Sydney’s own five-piece pop-punkers Tonight Alive have announced details of their anticipated debut album release ‘What Are You Scared Of?’. The album will now be made available on the 1st October through Sony/Search and Destroy Records.
Having an album produced by Mark Trombino (Jimmy Eat World, The Starting Line) and featuring vocals by Blink 182‘s Mark Hoppus already holds the album in good stead of being a successful release. When asked about the calibre of collaborators, frontwoman Jenna McDougall had this to say: “Blink 182 was a big part of my growing up and having Mark be a part of our first full length record was a huge compliment to our music. We couldn’t have found anyone more perfect to record ‘What Are You So Scared Of?’ than Mark Trombino. It was as if he knew exactly what we wanted but didn’t know how to achieve yet, which made us a great team. Working with Mark was the first time we’d been challenged in the studio, so not only did he get the best out of us but we walked away from the experience with an album we were truly proud of and as better musicians!”
Not only this but Tonight Alive are also giving away a free download of their first single off the album ‘Breaking and Entering‘ which can be found here.
