Amoretta Releasing New EP "Seventeen Seventy"

Lafayette, LA's Amoretta will release new EP, "Seventeen Seventy," on January 8th. The album was recorded with Drew Fulk (Motionless In White, Escape The Fate) and is the follow-up to debut EP, "This Light" (2013).

Pre-orders are available now at this location. The band also recently premiered a new music video for "Wit's End," which can be seen below. Alex Breaux comments on the recording process:

"I’ve heard it said so many times that the journey is more important than the destination and, in my eyes, 'Seventeen Seventy' was exactly that for Amoretta. When we started writing for the EP, we wanted something new and ambitious out of our songs. We were seeking inspiration in the form of some undiscovered element that would set us apart in a big way. Needless to say, we found it. We left for the studio with tons of lyrics, ideas, full songs, ambition, and inspiration.

"Our time in Los Angeles with Drew took all that raw energy and multiplied it tenfold. I’ve never been a part of anything quite like it. It wasn't a marriage of sounds, it’s the birth of something all its own. We didn’t follow a guideline, a template, or a theme. Instead, we simply tried a lot of new ideas and the fruits of that adventure became Seventeen Seventy."

Canaan Frederick adds, "With each song tracked, I could FEEL the band growing and maturing. Alex and myself had lyrics written for days, but really tied in the EP with some extra thinking power from Drew. It's a new sound for us, especially from our debut EP that was released almost exactly two years ago. We really pride ourself on the versatility and I believe everyone can listen to the record and gain something from it. It may be difficult to set yourself apart in the genre but I genuinely believe we are taking giant steps in the right direction."

The track listing is as follows:

1. 1770
2. Wit's End
3. Versailles
4. P.S.
5. Better Off This Way
6. Bird's Eye View
