Michigan trio Breathe Owl Breathe has been notably silent in terms of new releases since 2010’s Magic Central, but the band is set to return with a follow-up album, the seventh full-length in their decade-long career, later this fall entitled Passage of Pegasus.
Passage of Pegasus continues to Breathe Owl Breathe’s penchant for vivid imagery and extensive harmonies. To celebrate the album’s announce (and give a small taste of what’s to come), the band has released the first track from Passage of Pegasus, “Silent Movie Reel.”
“After discovering some slides and reels stowed away during the intermission of The Godfather, this song took shape,” says band member and songwriter Micah Middaugh. “The song has a life of its own, with lighted windows and high ceilings.”
Passage of Pegasus is set for release on Oct. 15, and listeners who purchase the physical release will get an added treat: each album cover is a unique piece of art, individually numbered and pressed with handset type by Middaugh.
