The Hope & Ruin

This October, Mikal Cronin will release his his fourth & finest full-length to date & will be performing in support of his new record in February 2020. 

Recorded live with a crew of close friends & engineer Jason Quever at Palmetto Studios in Los Angeles, it finds Cronin pushing his often devastating power pop into darker territory. Mikal Cronin’s new record comes with a backstory that feels like fate, Conin writes…

‘I aimed for nature. I wanted organic sounds. I wanted to bring you into the room…. I brought a charred pine cone from the woods to the studio, just in case it would help. Fire—specifically its cycle of purging & reseeding the landscape—is a central theme to the record. Death & rebirth.

I was looking for something: answers, direction, peace. I am the seeker.’
