Tidewater has just announced the release of his new album, The Wedding, which will be released via Easy Killer Records on April 30th, 2013. With the record's ten songs nodding to influences as diverse as David Gray, Maroon 5, Mumford & Sons, and Two Door Cinema Club, Tidewater's Brett Allen feels like the new songs reflect well the changes in his own personal life.

The Wedding will show us a new side to Brett after Tidewater's 2010 full-length, The Seas We Sail, which climbed to iTunes' Top 100 charts, as well as Top 20 on Smartpunk. "This record has a very diverse song selection, my musical tastes and interests changed quite a bit over the last few years. I would say broadly, my taste has just become more organic and less electronic." When asked if he felt more freedom to explore such diverse territory, Brett is quick to point out that perhaps the biggest change in his life is the catalyst for the wildly varied emotional dynamics. "I was married this past June to the love of my life. I'm certainly no expert husband yet, but married life is great! Life is just better together. It just made sense that this kind of inspiration comes out in my songs."
This is Brett's fourth record with good friend, manager and Easy Killer label co-owner, Kevin Gales. "I would just say we're a good team. The dynamic in the studio is just really chill. On more than one occasion we've created something out of absolutely nothing; I mean...nothing in the air at all but silence and nothing in our hands but blank paper. I think when you find those kind of collaborations, you have to hold on to them."
Brett will tour this year with Sparks The Rescue and Rookie of The Year, as well as heading out for both the US and Canada dates with The Rocket Summer and Joe Brooks. Tidewater will then get ready for his first national CD release tour in May of 2013 to support the new release. 2013 is showing promise of a breakout year for Tidewater.
