“The Last Christmas on Earth” was recorded following the completion of
The Evening Descends, the new album by Evangelicals, which will be released on January 22nd, 2008. To accompany this demented pop nugget, Evangelicals singer/guitarist/main madman Josh Jones posed for a very special holiday themed photo.
Finally! We are thrilled to unveil the details for the sophomore album from Evangelicals. Let us introduce you to The Evening Descends.
The Evening Descends… and worlds collide. First you hear the prodigious musical skill: the deft guitar work, the clever pop sensibility, the wild arrangements. But then on other end of the spectrum there is the innocent and youthful charm of a trio of lost boys who seem to have no business making music with such maturity and sophistication. Taken together, you have Evangelicals, a wholly demented ensemble from Norman, OK. Dabbling in glam, slipping in a little funk and soul, drinking the psychedelic Kool-aid, blasting the synths, cranking up the guitars, and wrapping it all up with a dose of pop smarts, The Evening Descends is the first great album of 2008.
The Evening Descends will be released on January 22nd via Dead Oceans.
