ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Linger was originally formed back in 1999 in little Weyburn, Saskatchewan, the home of prairie socialist T.C. Douglas. It all started with three young lads named David Roman, Rob Hillstead and Nathan Binns, all of whom were intrigued by the creative potential that the art of music provided. Hoping to create something fresh and rather eclectic yet suited to their interests, David, Rob and Nathan started on a long journey that would eventually culminate in the diverse sound and style of Linger today.

Since 1999, a collaborative mix of musicians has come and gone through Linger, each one of them influencing the musical direction in a new way. Thanks to this atmosphere of collaboration, Linger has experimented with a variety of organic and electronic instruments and soundscapes, and has been influenced by various genres from several different cultures. Their debut album, “The Root of Truth”, clearly demonstrates the results of this experimentation by mixing acoustic guitars, violins, pianos and various ambiences with more traditional hard rock, alternative and metal guitar riffing. This is coupled with a wide range of tempos, timings, and dynamics, translating into music that can evoke a variety of emotional responses. While time has passed and the members of Linger have grown and sometimes changed, the meaning of the music has also undergone a simultaneous transformation growing far more conceptual and provocative. Thus, “The Root of Truth” is full of motifs and metaphors that cumulatively tell a story while providing commentary on various social and political issues.

Linger will be hoping to make a lot of noise in the music industry in 2008 being finally prepared to release an album that has taken almost a decade to conceive and create. Check out www.lingerband.ca to keep updated on release dates and touring schedules throughout 2008.
