Shallow Side and Thermal Entertainment have joined forces for the band’s new album Saints & Sinners set to be released on Friday, March 29th. It will be the band’s first full-length release. Pre-order bundles are available HERE.
Saints & Sinners was produced by rock and metal giant Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Incubus, Altered Bridge, Chevelle, Three Days Grace, Slash) and recorded in Orlando, FL at his Barbarosa studio. The album includes 10 all-new original tracks.
“Recording with Elvis was an experience all in itself. Growing up, I was listening to records that shaped and molded me individually as an artist and he had his hands in almost every single one of them it seems. It was a journey recording Saints & Sinners and I believe the songs truly capture where we were and express growth in music, as well as experiences.” says Heath Fields (drummer).
Matt Daniels (bassist) added, “Artistically, it is an amazing time for us. There were so many ideas that came to light during the writing of “Saints and Sinners.” We had put all of our creativity and emotions into a pot to discover what makes a Shallow Side record; from the angelic vocals, melodic riffs, and the driving rhythm sections that keep the beat bumping. This is something that accurately represents where we are as a band and our growth together.”
Seth Trimble (guitarist) expressed, “I honestly wasn’t as excited for my own birth as I am for this album. I’ve never had a better sense of pride than when we hit that playback button at the end of the day and got to explore this beautiful soundscape that we created together.”

“It’s really a coming of age, or developmental piece for us. We’ve written songs since we started playing music. We’ve recorded the best of those songs but at some point we never really knew who we were, or what we really wanted. This full length album allows us to dive in and really start to understand who Shallow Side really is…”
