The album, which was produced by Dan Franklin at Chicago's Strobe Recording, is Common Shiner's "epic rock" follow up to 2011's more intimate, folk-oriented Before They Sold Out (Part 1).
Common Shiner, which formed in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2002, takes inspiration from smart, pop-oriented groups like Death Cab for Cutie and Ben Folds Five but isn't afraid to turn up the volume and tear down the walls just like their more rock/punk influences Rise Against and Motion City Soundtrack.
Called "Absolutely Captivating" by Chicago's influential Fearless Radio, Common Shiner is thinking big in 2013 and Before They Sold Out (Part 2) is the band's "Go Big or Go Home" album.
