The Nobility is honored to be featured today on NPR’s All Songs Considered. Take a listen to some of the nice things Robin Hilton has to say about the song “Wonderful Night” and the rest of the record. Note: Stephen incorrectly gets credit for Sean’s song and tale of romance, but we’re no less flattered.
Stephen and Sean sat down with SongCast’s Todd A. to discuss the ins and outs of being a DIY band. Check it out:
We are pleased to announce that The Nobility’s full-length album #3, Ashford Castle, finally has a release date: February 19th, 2016. For the generous Kickstarters who contributed to the making of said album, you will be receiving your much-deserved rewards in the next couple of weeks.
Once again, our sincerest gratitude to everyone for their patience on this. Recording music can be an arduous task and it has most definitely taken us longer than expected to get these songs into the shape they needed to be in. We’re convinced that, in the end, it was time well-spent. You’ve waited a long time, so here is some actual music to listen to – a song from the upcoming record called “On The Sly.” Please enjoy:
Also, we may be playing shows in your town in coming months… stay tuned for tour details!
Auld Lang Syne and happy 2016 to you all!
This coming Saturday, December 5th, we will join our amazingly talented friends The Secret Sisters for a Christmas-y show at the historic Lindsley Ave. Church of Christ in downtown Nashville. The show is all ages and starts at 7:30 sharp. Only admission is a brand new, unwrapped toy which will benefit Nashville area children this Christmas.
We spent last week in the studio recording a new Nobility tune with The Secret Sisters on lead vocals, and it’s quite possible that we’ve never sounded better. The song ‘Hope You Still (Want to Be Loved)’ will be the B-side on our first 7″ vinyl single – we’re excited for you to eventually hear it.
To all you generous Nobility Kickstarter backers:
Just wanted to send along a quick hello as well as some reassurance that we have not forgotten that we’re supposed to be making an album right now. We are indeed still chipping away, but unfortunately haven’t been able to move as quickly as we had originally hoped. We’ll spare you the boring details, but rest assured that we are working as quickly as our little Nobility calendars will allow. As of now, we are aiming for an early 2016 release to the general public. However, as loyal Nobility backers, you will be receiving the music (as well as your other rewards) much sooner than that.
Speaking of calendars, one exciting bit of news is that in August we will be recording a brand new Nobility tune for the B-side of our 7″ vinyl release, featuring the ridiculously talented and nice The Secret Sisters on lead vocals. We’re quite stoked about it.
In case you’re interested, here’s how the album is shaping up so far:
1. Ashford Castle
2. Wonderful Night
3. Heart Is Strange
4. Rollin’ in the Aisle
5. I Can’t Tell You Why
7. Mrs. Judy May
9. On the Sly
10. Walk Into The Light
11. Hope You Still (Want to Be Loved) – featuring The Secret Sisters (7″ vinyl B-Side)
Thank you again for your generosity, both with your finances and patience. We think this album is going to be worth the wait.
