Much is made of Hiva Oa's fragility and restraint, but more than anything, the various attractions along this route fall under the general heading of "unexpected." The meta-tempo percussive rattle of "Urban" leaves the...

a’tris Lets Fans Vote For New Album Tracks

It’s been quite a while since we’ve written about a’tris on this site. They were one of the first bands to appear on our Find of The Week feature a few years ago and then kind of fell off the radar.

The band is currently working on their follow up to 2008′s full length, Lensing (stream it below) and by “currently working on” I mean “enlisting fans to do the grunt work”. A’tris is releasing a new track each week during 2011 and having fans vote on which tracks should be included on the new album. Each track will have a downloadable karaoke version and also a feature video to go along with it. A’tris has also teamed up with Alphabetica Design who will be designing and creating a new image for each track and will have shirts made up with each tracks unique image. We’re talking massive amounts of work going into this.

The songs that have the most plays, covers submitted and “Likes” on Youtube will be the tracks that will be selected for the new album. So don’t stand idly by, get in there and have your say.

Week 1: “Don’t Shoot The Messenger”
Week 2: “It’s Too Late”
Week 3: “Bird of Prey”
Week 4: “As A Monster”
Week 5: “She’s Real”
Week 6: “Debts”
Week 7: “Over and Over”

a’tris – “That Would Be The End”
