Dear Future, Come Get Me

With Dear Future, Come Get Me, The Fold have surely delivered their most solid, cohesive, and single-stacked album to date. It's no coincidence that the band decided to take their career into their own hands simultaneously upon deploy of their most important release. The disc runs the gamut of soul searching ballads like "These Are My Dreams" and title track "Dear Future" - the latter of which features electronics and lush vocals to make for one of the band's finer moments on the books. The journey is not over, as we soar with the hurried cadence and urgency of tracks like "Midnight", "File Under: Ground" and "Neverender".
Album opener "File Under: Ground (Take Me In," features sweetly hypnotic vocals from vocalist Daniel Castady, an urgent chorus and driving guitars. As an album opener, it's damn near perfect. The song's subject, about being rescued and seeking solace, whether from the divine or a lover, is universal, relatable and comforting. On follow-up track "Hold On," Castady once again impresses with his vocal command and emotive pleas, with a flourish of "ba ba ba"s in the background. The angular and craggy "Red Wine," sounds somewhat reminiscent of Sherwood, with its sunny chorus and hurried cadence, but doesn't do much to bolster the album's status as noteworthy. Title track "Dear Future," features electronic beats and some gorgeous singing to make for one of the band's finer moments. The spiritual track tackles the notion of completely surrendering to the powers that be. --Absolute Punk
The new Fold album is amazing! The first and last tracks should both be all over the radio. The last song 'Neverender' is one of the best songs I've heard all year. --Tom Higgenson, Plain White T's
The Fold has created a near-masterpiece in this year s world of independent music. Their new album contains a lot of different lyrical content also, ranging from fun, upbeat rock tunes to more serious spiritual tracks. --Indie Vision Music

It's the little things that set The Fold apart from the pack. The band has taken their own fate in their own hands -- all of the members are immensely involved in nurturing the band in it's entirety - from recording, to deciding on artwork, to releasing their music. It's completely up to them to enlist their fans and promote their music. The Fold thrives on hardwork, determination and old-fashioned word of mouth. These four guys are constantly pushing the envelope in terms of promoting via social networking. Yet, they still find the time to take to the streets to flyer and chat with fans.
They shoot out of the gates with their first track 'File Under: Ground', hit their stride by the title track - and win the race STRONG with the final track 'Neverender'.
Lyrically, I would say this album is their strongest. It's very clear what the attitude of the record is, and many of the songs possess an anthemic quality.
Personally - my favorite aspect of this album is the usage of vocal's as an instrument. It takes talent... and The Fold is well stocked.
