Listen to Before You Were Born

the Austin based band Frank Smith is prepping the release of their 3rd full length (Big Strike in Silver City, Nineteen) since relocating to Austin a few years back, and the band wanted to reach out to a handful of folks that have been supportive in the past and give them a heads up as to what the band has planned for the next few months.

Over the next few months the band is going to be making available a free download of a track from their upcoming 12" vinyl release titled Before You Were Born. The band returned to the local recording studio The Bubble to record once again with engineer/producer Alex Lyon. This time around the band took a different approach to recording and recorded the album live to tape with all the members in the same room. Recorded with a fresh approach, Before You Were Born is seen by the band as a new birth and direction.

The first of the free downloads is the first track on Before You Were Born titled "Monsters", and clearly demonstrates why the band is feeling really good about this compilation of 8 new tracks.
