Delorentos are excited to announce the release of a new album, their 5th studio album to date. It’s been a while coming and it’s testament to the resilience of the band that True Surrender exists at all!
True Surrender was written, arranged, recorded, mixed and honed over a chaotic three year period of bilocation, the birth of children and a heightened level of personal and professional anxiety – not to mention all of the usual trials and tribulations of the creative process and the artistic battles that are par for the course. Songs were written, stripped back to their core and rebuilt with new instrumentation, new meaning and a constant, fervent desire to pour their hearts and souls into every bar of music.
Preceded by the singles “In Darkness We Feel Our Way” (the only survivor from the Vineyard album) and “In The Moment”, which only scratch the surface of the musical endeavour in the album, True Surrender is Delorentos’ proudest achievement to date. Melodic tunes infused with electronic warmth; soaring, mellifluous melodies encasing lyrics that tug at the heart strings, rant and rail in defiance and, ultimately, offer a brand new insight into a band of four school-friends who have grown together and grown apart before cohering again with a whole new shape, understanding and vision.
Ultimately True Surrender is the band’s most evolved, emotive and affecting collection of songs so far. The tell-tale sound of a classic 4-piece guitar band is still there in parts, but that sound has been developed, mixed, melded and transmogrified into a brand new, edgy beast that is a force to be reckoned with!
Delorentos’ determined rise has been a wonderful (and, at times, tortuous) chaos – break-ups, labels collapsing, reformations and critical awards, worldwide tours and packed houses from Mexico City to Moscow. In a world where so much emphasis is placed on “brand new” they continue to revel in writing albums and playing live shows that are ever more passionate, raw and exciting!
