New York, NY, July 23, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- The critically acclaimed debut self titled CD by Danny Chait and The New Surreal, is set to hit stores all over the world next month for Sunset Records.
Not much about The New Surreal is what you would expect musically, starting with the name of the band which is also the name of the self titled debut CD released by Sunset Records being released on August 19th. Coined from the bizarre or unreal quality associated with surrealism, indicating a weird unfamiliar, disturbing and even what could be dreamlike experiences. Yet the trio’s album is filled with vocally-driven songs, with lyrics that make up some of the best ballads of the year. Further, The New Surreal is a group after all, headed up by the critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Danny Chait.
The first single on the debut The New Surreal album, The New Surreal was inspired by Chait, a very special talented songwriter and performer — a vocalist that is greatly suitable for the music on the radio today. The album is filled with songwriting of a person that isn’t afraid to speak his mind in their songs. The New Surreal will perform their entire new debut CD at the National Underground in New York City on August 7th. This very special show will be shown as an eCast to promote the release of the debut CD on August 19th. “We also are planning a very special promotional tour in late August”, says Don Lichterman, the head of Sunset Records, “and then we will do a festivals and music conferences this fall which will take us through the end of the year.” Lichterman then states that “this is a great CD to work.”
“A friend of the band had been was working with Don (Lichterman) and we sent him our music a few months ago,” says Chait, at his house in New York before their last showcase in Brooklyn, NY last May. “I had read about the label many times,” They met at the Sunset Records offices in New York and hit it off. Lichterman invited Chait to join the label that week. The band took the demos back to their studio to finish the final mix before mastering the debut CD for Sunset. After this meeting back in May this year, came the ten (10) song CD, “The New Surreal.” The New Surreal’s breakthrough should come this year with this CD, with the single “We Got Time.”
For perceptive singer/songwriters such as Danny Chait, it is easy to show that vulnerability when he writes his music and songs. With this debut album, The New Surreal’s front man and main songwriter exceeds the sensitive-feeling of earnestness that makes up the band’s ballads, We Got Time and Ease Me. The colorful melodies and lyrical arrangements are perfect avenues for Chait's sweet vocals pattern. The band also evokes a quirky poppiness that is accessible to young kids and adult music listeners. There is no doubt this band will have many hit songs in their career. The debut self titled CD, The New Surreal proves that Chait can write and sing pop driven songs.
