NASHVILLE, TN (October 30, 2015) – Croakinâ€™ Poetsâ€™ platinum-selling recording artists, Sister Hazel, will release their first new album in five years, Lighter In The Dark, February 2016. The long-awaited 14-track collection, produced by noted Nashville producer Chip Matthews (Lady A, Brooks & Dunn), represents the band’s entrÃ©e into the country music genre. Fans ordering the CD at the live shows or the digital album from iTunes will receive an instant download of a sure-to-be fan favorite, â€œWe Got It All Tonight.â€ Preorder the album here.
While touring in support of their ninth studio album, Â Sister Hazel will set the stage for the debut of some of the brand-new songs. From the intro ballad, â€œFall off the Map,â€ to the heartfelt â€œSomething to Believe In,â€ to the fun-loving good times of â€œKiss Me Without Whiskeyâ€ and â€œKaraoke Songâ€ featuring Darius Rucker, Lighter In The Dark is the first Sister Hazel album to showcase the band’s Southern Rock/Country side. The band embraces their roots and Florida music influences wholeheartedly. Each member of the group is involved in writing and performing their songs and the result is a culmination of 20 years of friendship and musical sentiments.
Â â€œThe five years since our last record has been anything but a straight and clear path,â€ states bassist/vocalist Jett Beres. â€œAfter making records together for over 20 years, we found ourselves struggling to find The Sound; a body of work that would honestly represent who each of us were as a band and as individuals. Â The music that was created was our â€œlighter in the dark.â€ Â The songs that form this record slowly began to illuminate a clarity of direction and creativity for us. Â In choosing a record title, this lyric from the song â€œSomething to Believe Inâ€ became the clear choice to represent our journey, our struggles, and ultimately our deliverance.â€

About SISTER HAZEL:
Originating from Gainesville, FL, Sister Hazel is comprised of five gifted, seasoned musicians whose well-spring of natural talent has been called “one of the Top 100 Most Influential Independent Performers of the last 15 years” by Performing Songwriter Magazine. Song “All for You” topped the adult alternative charts during the summer of 1997 and the success propelled their album to platinum status. Sister Hazel has been equally attentive to connecting with their audience through social media. Their Twitter followers are nearing the 1 million mark and last year they called upon that audience to help with the making of 20 STAGES, an album of live versions of songs from throughout the bandâ€™s career. Living up to their fan-centered reputation, the band hosts annual events like â€œHazelnut Hang,â€ that focuses on fan involvement and are co-founders of the Rockboat, a cruise featuring nonstop opportunities for fan/artist interaction. In addition to the events and touring, the band also gives back with Lyrics For Life. Founded by singer Ken Block, the charity unites musicians and celebrities for concerts and auctions to benefit cancer research and patient-care charities.
