Merging melodic pop rock hooks with rockin’ riffs, Framing Hanley are poised fortheir big breakthrough with their upcoming album, ‘The Sum of Who We Are.’ With a projected Spring 2014 release date, the disc will be the band’s first for Imagen Records, with a total of four producers offering input – Jasen Rauch, Brett Hestla, Rick Beato, and Eric Bass. “We are very excited about the future now that we are onboard with Imagen Records,”explains Framing Hanley’s singer, Kenneth Nixon. “After leaving our previous label, we made a decision to go about this next album as an unsigned artist; however, after talking with Bob and Morgan about Imagen’s vision and seeing/learning more about the team they have assembled and the vision they have for Framing Hanley, it was really a no-brainer. We expect big things with our new album and having Imagen steering the ship only gives us more confidence.” Comprised of Nixon, guitarists Ryan Belcher and Brandon Wooten, plus drummer Chris Vest, Framing Hanley has steadily built a buzz, as evidenced by their earlier album’s steady rise on the Billboard 200 Chart (2007’s ‘The Moment’ peaked at #169, while 2010’s ‘A Promise to Burn’ reached #57), while the song “Lollipop” went Digital Gold (over 500,000 copies sold). As a result, they have headlined and sold out venues all throughout the United States and the UK, and have toured with the likes of Good Charlotte, Sick Puppies, Saving Abel. Also, Framing Hanley has been spotted turning heads at such mega-festivals as Download in the UK and Soundwave in Australia. As VP of A&R with Imagen Records, Morgan Rose, points out – “I’ve known these guys for their entire career and have been a fan from the beginning. When I found out they had become free from their label I jumped at the opportunity to bring them to Imagen. We’re beyond excited to have landed them and expect huge things from them in 2014 and beyond.” With Imagen Records on their side and a strong third album in the can, before you know it, Framing Hanley will be rocking a radio and concert stage near you!
