Shout Out Louds - Blue Ice VIDEO

The Swedish five-piece, Shout Out Louds are all set to release their fourth album, Optica, on February 26, 2013.  The first single from the album is 'Blue Ice' and was actually released as a made from ice 7", with only 10 available worldwide.  It's hard to believe this band has been around for 10 years already, and are still flying well under the radar.  Here is the bands take on the new album...

"In our eagerness to please no one but ourselves this time around, we decided to take on the challenge of producing our own music for the first time ever. Our close friend and sound aficionado of choice Johannes Berglund and his studio in Stockholm presented us with an ideal package for the endeavor. A secluded work space close to home, but off the earth's surface, a more than generous timeline, and the patient and brilliant sixth member we needed to get through the whole thing safely. Together we made up a downstairs world of explosive colors, big, warm sounds and a very, very uninhibited work process. We never worried about following a clear path, trusting that the conscious decision not to worry would be enough to lead us right, and that right doesn't necessarily have to mean rational or even reasonable...We all set prestige and skillfulness aside in favor of experimentation and sheer gusto. That will probably come across live too. I don't think we've ever been this excited to take an album on tour."
