The LA-based Brian Buckley Band is back with a new single entitled Mother’s Day, their first release of new material since debut album For Her which featured Frank Zappa musicians Vinnie Colaiuta (drums) and Arthur Barrow (bass, piano, organ) who also engineered and produced the record. Without Injuring Eternity is a deeper and richer exploration into their sound with producer Mark Howard (U2, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits) at the helm. Using the unique and creative environment of the Mack Sennett Sound Stage, Howard pushed the band to the limit of inventiveness to create new, interesting and distinctive sounds, strong melodies and hooks, bizarre drum grooves, unusual song arrangements - sometimes making the band play in ways they had not played before in order to produce their best performances. At the fore-front is Brian Buckley’s beautiful and emotional vocal, alternating between his effortless and powerful falcetto and his natural register to create a magical and mysterious blend. Telling the story of his life experiences, each song is a unique world in itself, connected by the thread of Brian’s vocals. Without Injuring Eternity is a heart-felt and emotional record of a kind that is sorely missing these days. Brought to you by record label Sonic360, home to Walter Becker, Kinky and Emmanuel Jal. Distributed in the US through Fontana / Universal. A few words from Brian Buckley about the song Mother’s Day: “Mother's Day is a story based solely on hope. Most songs are, I suppose. It follows a young woman who's transition to lover and then motherhood is derailed by the loss of her first son during birth. The song's history is true and was told to me first-hand by the loveliest and most important woman in my life. When the despair meets the tragedy–the only solution and escape, is the love she shares with her husband. The chant of the chorus is a prayer and a thank you letter to that reckless love. All we can hope for as a band is that the listener can associate, feel uplifted and sing along as loudly as they can..”
