Avion Roe Details New LP; Premieres First Track

EpitaphEmo rock band Avion Roe has announced details for their next full length.  The album will be titled In Separation and is due out on June 17, 2016 via Epitaph Records. The disc follows the band’s 2015 Into the Rest EP.  Vocalist Evan Couture states:

In Separation is a story of perseverance. Writing this record fell at a time of growth for us, not only as musicians but as people. The title stems from the idea of evolving and separating from the person you’ve been and transitioning into who you will be.

Everything about In Separation was collaborative. We all pushed each other to venture out of our comfort zones and create something that would stand the test of time. I found myself as a songwriter during the creation of the album and I realized that, for Avion Roe, the true success of a song is being able to evoke human emotion in others and to resonate with people from all different walks of life.”

Coinciding with the announcement comes the release of a new lyric video for the track “Carving Flowers,” which can be heard at Alternative Press
