Du point de vue de Facedown Records :
We are very happy to announce the signing of Portland, OR's A Hope For Home to Facedown Records. After the success of their Strike First Records debut "The Everlasting Man", A Hope For Home has been brought up to the Facedown roster to release their new album in Spring of 2010. They are finishing the writing now and will record in January with Chris Common (Pelican, Mouth Of The Architect). Check out a new pre-production song titled "Post Tenebras Lux" on their myspace now. While you are on their myspace, make sure to also check out the blog explaining the concept and ideas behind the upcoming album.
Du point de vue de A Hope For Home :
The album will be a vast concept about the search for meaning in a seemingly meaningless world, a problem I think everyone faces regardless of their beliefs. Frederick Nietzsche famously declared that “God is dead…and we have killed him.” Prominent scholars and thinkers tell us we must reject religious belief due to a moral basis. The philosophical debate goes on but we are left in the middle to try and find a meaning- What if God is not real? Does my life have no purpose? Does anything matter? We will be deconstructing this notion from the perspective of a man who finds himself in this world with no meaning, as he tries to reconstruct his understanding of reality. We want to touch on these doubts and fears that are felt by everyone from the most doubtful to the most fervent. It is not our goal to make a value judgment or to point fingers, but to more fully understand the human condition all of us are placed into.
Thanks again for all your continued support, we look forward to sharing more of this new project with you as the months unfold! Make sure to keep checking back for little goodies here and there, and drop a line to let us know what you think! Thank you all so much!
A Hope For Home
