EDITORS’ NOTES

Sorority Noise’s third album is emo at its anthemic best. Sadness and self-loathing are expected here: The album opens with a funeral (“No Halo”), muses on suicide (“Disappeared”), and leaves singer Cameron Boucher wondering how he can believe in God if God won’t believe in him. But there’s a warmth and humor to Boucher’s self-loathing that makes their sadness not just tolerable but cathartic—the wall they scale to get to the other side.

About Sorority Noise

Indie quartet Sorority Noise was formed in 2013 by singer/guitarist Cameron Boucher, who also fronts New Hampshire-based screamo group Old Gray. Looking for an outlet for some of his newer material, he enlisted Old Gray drummer Charlie Singer, along with Prawn bassist Ryan McKenna and second guitarist Adam Ackerman, to form Sorority Noise in Hartford, Connecticut. After a handful of early releases, including a cassette EP and digital single, Boucher and his bandmates delivered their debut LP, Forgettable, in early 2014. Fusing bits of emo and pop-punk with melodic indie rock, the band eventually caught the attention of respected East Coast indie Top Shelf Records. Released in June of 2015, Joy Departed, their follow-up album -- and debut for Top Shelf -- took a more diverse and introspective approach. It was followed by a national tour with Motion City Soundtrack. 2016 saw both the release of a new Sorority Noise EP, It Kindly Stopped for Me, as well as the reissue of their debut album, Forgettable, via Broken World Media. These served to set up the release of their third full-length, You're Not as _____ as You Think, this time arriving via Triple Crown Records in early 2017. ~ Timothy Monger
