With 2.5 million Facebook fans and over 157 million plays at MySpace, Never Shout Never – the 20-year-old Missourian Christofer Drew – already has a huge fanbase behind him as proven when readers of Alternative Press named him as their Artist of the Year for 2010. Further evidence of his popularity emerged when his MTV.com ‘Live in NYC’ special show sold-out in just five minutes, while Drew also joined famous names including Natalie Portman and Olivia Wilde when he was named PETA 2’s Sexiest Vegetarian.
In the UK, Never Shout Never have proven to be an online and word-of-mouth phenomenon which has resulted in the band confirming their first major London headline show at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire for January 2012.
Now Never Shout Never will issue their new album ‘Time Travel’, his first that was created with a full band which is completed by Caleb Denison (guitar/drums/percussion/vocals), Taylor MacFee (bass/vocal) and Hayden Kaiser (guitar/percussion/vocals). The album embraces a lush sound with fuller instrumentation and the songs are infused with more experimental tangents. “I wanted to make this album more of a little concept,” says Drew. “I just wanted it to be different than anything that we’ve done; I wanted it to be a little more trippy. I’ve always thought that it would be awesome to travel through time.”
Set for a full release on December 12th, ‘Time Travel’ will initially only be available to order as an exclusive European album edition from UK Undercurrent in two bundles from September 26th 2011.
