Pittsburgh hard rock heroes CAROUSEL will release their sophomore LP 2113 on August 28 via Tee Pee Records. The eagerly-anticipated follow up to CAROUSEL's revered debut, Jeweler's Daughter -- an album that was hailed as "riff-laden" and "epic" by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and landed near the top of many "Best of 2013" year-end lists -- 2113 is a midnight binge-blur of muscular, dynamic R'N'R, filled with timeless hooks and killer, scorching solos. On the new album,CAROUSEL welcomes new guitarist Matt Goldsborough -- also of Pentagram andThe Skull -- into the band, joining the formidable lineup of Dave Wheeler (guitar, vocals), Jake Leger (drums) and Jim Wilson (bass).
CAROUSEL is a band that knows how to capture your attention; the group has the unique ability to filter the music of their childhood heroes through a contemporary lens. On 2113, the four-piece unleashes charged-up rhythms and wicked dual-guitar harmonies that lay a strong foundation for the shining voice and catchy choruses of front man Dave Wheeler. 2113 is the ultimate nighttime driving music; a head-turning blend of Casablanca-era KISS and prime time Thin Lizzy with one foot in the past and the other firmly secured in the future. 2113 also contains a "hidden" bonus cover of the Joe Walsh classic, "Turn to Stone".
