Sullivan Is Back! New Album Coming December 9th
We are so excited to announce that our good friends in Sullivan have reunited after a seven year hiatus and signed to Spartan. For many months now, the band has been hard at work behind-the-scenes putting the finishing touches on their brand new album, Heavy Is The Head. We are thrilled to finally reveal that we'll be releasing the album on December 9th on limited edition vinyl and at digital outlets everywhere.
Formed in 2001, Sullivan rose through the ranks of early emo/rock acts of the early 2000's with a standout sound that blurred the lines between rock, indie and pop. The band's rising success eventually led to signing with Tooth & Nail Records and the release of two critically heralded albums, Hey, I’m a Ghost (2006) and Cover Your Eyes (2007). During that time the band established a strong following with their breakthrough record and tours with bands like Anberlin, Underoath, Bayside and Jack’s Mannequin.
"We discussed our options for a very long time and in the end, we wanted to be comfortable with whomever we worked with," says vocalist Brooks Paschal. "Signing to Spartan was the obvious choice for us, since we had such a great working relationship with John Frazier going back to the Tooth & Nail days. It's a rare occasion when you can revamp your career on a brand new label, yet have the head start of a great connection with your label guy. Watching Spartan grow and then deciding to start Sullivan again was serendipitous. It was meant to be. There is no better feeling than having a team that's not only on the same page as you, but is also eager to grow just as much as you are. Our successes, and our pursuits are in tandem. That becomes more and more apparent every day, and that is, comfortable."
