Los Angeles, CA| February 25, 2016 – With the release of their sophomore album Understand [out 2/26/16] on the way, Alternative-Folk/Americana outfit Anton Kellner & The Lone Stars partnered with Exclaim! to give fans an exclusive first-listen at the album in full. Understand was produced by Anton Kellner and Nolan Perry, mixed and mastered by Nolan Perry. Here is what Anton Kellner had to say about the release:
“Understand is a dark journey into the unknown. A diary of sorts, tying together strands of daily struggles and emotions but from the outside-in…For once, nothing that I have written on this album is personal. They are all separate stories about real people and their drastic situations that I have witnessed over the years. This album was written entirely by me. No collaborations, no special guests. 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.” – Anton Kellner
