London-based punk rock troubadour Rob Lynch will release his debut album All These Nights In Bars Will Somehow Save My Soul on 22nd September 2014 through Xtra Mile Recordings.
The release will follow Rob’s current stint performing on the whole of the Vans Warped Tour in the US and it’ll be dropping in the midst of a recently-announced UK headline tour.
You can also watch the brand new video for album track 'Feeling Good'. Go on.
Not one to shy away from the rigours of the road, Rob Lynch has been busy carving out his niche in bars and venues across the country, and also in Germany where he’s sold out many a show, played Reeperbahn Festival and even appeared at the legendary St Pauli FC souvenir store. Other notable festival appearances for Rob, even before he had management, agent or label on board, have included Download, Slam Dunk (UK), Groezrock (BE) and Fest (US).
Between November 2012 and August 2013, Lynch took time out to record tracks in Philadelphia with Shane Henderson (Valencia) and Hoxton, East London with Sam Duckworth (Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly), that would go on to make up his full-length album. The result was an unbelievably honest and intimate record, a 12-track journey tackling such themes as the death of his father, life on the road, and finding light in times of darkness.
As Rob himself says, opener ‘31/32’ is “a call to arms about enjoying the moment we’re living in.” From the singalong lilt of recent single ‘My Friends & I’, to the therapeutic mellowness ‘Medicine’ and unassuming tearjerker ‘Widow’, this is an album that tells many a story of sadness and regret but always with an underlying sense of positivity and hope.
