St. Paul & The Broken Bones - Angels In Science Fiction
“Thematically deeply personal, the 12-track album reflects…vulnerability through its nuanced musicality” – No Depression
“One of the nation’s best live bands” – NPR
St. Paul & The Broken Bones are set to release their new album Angels In Science Fiction, on April 21 via ATO Records.
The new album was recorded at Sam Phillips Recording Studio in Memphis, Tennessee and produced by Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, John Prine, Elvis Presley). It follows the band’s critically acclaimed 2022 album The Alien Coast.
Angels In Science Fiction was written in the span of a few weeks after Janeway learned that his wife was pregnant with their daughter, Marigold. Following the examples set by greats like Aristotle, William James and John Steinbeck, Janeway penned the album as a series of letters to his then-unborn daughter.
Founded in Birmingham, Alabama in 2011, St. Paul & The Broken Bones consists of Paul Janeway (vocals), Jesse Phillips (bass), Browan Lollar (guitar), Kevin Leon (drums), Al Gamble (keyboards), Allen Branstetter (trumpet), Chad Fisher (trombone), and Amari Ansari (saxophone). The eight-piece ensemble burst into the world with their 2014 debut, Half the City, establishing a sound that quickly became a calling card and landing the band a slew of major festivals including Lollapalooza, Coachella and Glastonbury. Critical praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, SPIN and NPR followed, leading to shared stages with some of the world’s biggest artists—Elton John and The Rolling Stones among them—and launching an impressive run of headlining tours behind what Esquire touted as a “potent live show that knocks audiences on their ass.”
St. Paul & The Broken Bones will also take their dynamic live shows to the U.S. and Europe on a run of headline dates throughout the year—visit stpaulandthebrokenbones.com/shows for complete tour routing and contact us with any requests!
