New Jersey/Philly indie-rock outfit Young Statues, led by songwriter/vocalist Carmen Cirignano, will release its forthcoming self-titled debut record in the UK via Banquet Records in November. Pre-order details for the UK release will be announced soon.

In the winter of 2010, a spontaneous trip to Athens, GA became the birth of Young Statues. The record first began to take shape at Chase Park Transduction Studios, where a series of songs were recorded between friends, songs that were initially never intended to be released. Intrigued by the results of these sessions, songwriter and vocalist Carmen Cirignano decided to continue working on them with longtime producer and engineer Steve Poponi at the Gradwell House in Haddon Heights, NJ. It was here, with the help of bassist Tom Ryan and drummer Daniel Bogan, that these songs were transformed into the impressive debut record for a band comprised of longtime friends in the Philadelphia area music scene. Full of swelling guitars, intricate vocal melodies and introspective lyrics, “Young Statues” is evidence of a group of musicians who have honed their skills and made a record to be revered for its beauty, tact, and honesty.

Young Statues has landed a support slot on The Early November’s landmark reunion show taking place on 11/26 at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, N, alongside Hit The Lights and The Dangerous Summer.
