Anton Kellner & The Lone Stars has announced their new album, Understand will be released digitally on February 26, 2016 with an LP to be released later in the year. This album will come more than a year since their 2014 critically acclaimed debut alternative-folk album, You Were The Fire.
Anton Kellner has described their sophomore album as an outside looking in perspective on the daily struggles and emotions of others seeking help and comfort. The album came after Kellner witnessed real people deal with drastic situations and his desire to verbalize these struggles. Kellner states, “I strongly felt the need to address these emotions, but needed a medium to communicate my thoughts, so I figured why not turn them into a record.”
Understand features Anton Kellner (vocals, acoustic/electric guitar, piano, organ), Nolan Perry (bass), Josh Lucas (drums, percussion), and Scott Poley (pedal steel, additional electric guitar), with additional vocals by Sierra English.
In Understand, Kellner shares, “we took a lot of risks with it, and dared to step into stories that were outside our comfort level. We are very proud of the end result, and truly believe that this is simply ‘our album”. After the success of You Were The Fire, it is fair to say Anton Kellner & The Lone Stars’ risk will surely pay off.
