Official press release:

Easily one of the most enthusiastic, hard working and promising new bands to come onto the scene as of late is the Christian metalcore quintet, I The Breather, who just put the finishing touches on their much anticipated debut full-length album. The new offering, These Are My Sins, is set for a December release through Sumerian Records and look for the group on tour throughout North American with The Great Commission and We Are Defiance starting October 29th. Be sure to either see below to view their complete touring itinerary.

Also, a candid, in-depth webisode series and some pre-production tracks can be found on the MySpace page now. Stay tuned for weekly updates.

Morgan Wright (drums) states: "Now that the CD is completed I feel as though a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. I feel anxious and so excited to let everyone hear the work we've put into these 11 songs. I'm very proud of this album and I'm just as proud of the guys in this band. This album took a lot of hard work and determination from each of us. We spent long hours in the studio perfecting our sound and structuring the songs just the way they needed to be. Durv (the producer) absolutely killed it and made recording not work, but just us hanging out and playing our instruments, having fun.

"People can expect a very dynamic record. It is full of energy from beginning to end and the recording captures every aspect of each instrument so well. The lyrical content reflects the music in every aspect; the music behind the lyrics has a very angry but melodic at times tone, as do the vocals. The vocals are very raw and in your face, we didn't hold anything back. The lyrical content comes mainly from a theme of being lost but found, and standing up for what you believe in, taking on the battles that life has to offer. This album sounds huge and really captures everything envisioned at the start of our writing process.

"I would like this CD to be an inspiration to people; if you're struggling with your faith or need answers, this can help you find what you've been looking for. Also seeing kids come to our shows singing along, moving around and having a great time is an inspiration to us. I feel this record definitely fits in with the current scene today. The quality of the recording stands up to any professionally recorded record out there; it's very loud and holds its own. When making this record we definitely paid attention to how kids received certain things a band does. We made sure our songs were capable of making you move, think, sing or make you want to play along with us at one of our shows.

"Our live show is very energetic, heavy and tight! We all put everything we have into the show. Shawn is known for climbing things on stage and jumping into the audience. None of us like to stand still. We are constantly moving and in your face. We make sure everyone is having fun and moving with us. Interaction between the crowd and us is very important. The main thing we like to accomplish playing is just having fun. There's always a good vibe when we play. We encourage kids to move and lift their voices to sing along. We are constantly perfecting our live show, so it only gets better as we grow. We hope to see you all soon."
