Boston rockers Drunken Logic are set to release their debut album, Something New to Burn, on March 5, 2013. This 11 song LP was tracked over three furiously paced days at Futura Productions in Roslindale, MA. Something New to Burn will be released almost entirely online, with fans able to download the album for free or choose their price on the band’s website. The album will also be available at major online music retailers.
Drunken Logic is the brainchild of songwriter and musician Jake Cassman (vocals, piano/keyboards), who was runner-up in Berklee College of Music’s Songs for Social Change competition in 2011. In order to bring his eclectic and energetic songs to life, Jake formed a nucleus with experienced studio and live musicians Alex Palazzo (electric guitar) and Ben Marino (drums and percussion), as well as talented composers and songwriters Sam Sewall (electric bass) and Ryan Jordan (acoustic guitar). The band collaborated with established producer, engineer and musician Igor Stolarsky on all tracks for Something New to Burn. Together, this team worked tirelessly to forge an unforgettable sound from an ambitious and invigorating set of songs that can be heard both on tape and in the band’s lively performances, most recently as finalists in the Pop vs. Not Battle of the Bands held at the Middle East Downstairs last December..
Drunken Logic’s debut album was spawned by a variety of influences, from the arena rock of the Who to ‘90’s pop punk and current indie folk/rock staples like Frightened Rabbit and the Decemberists. Cassman’s songs on "Something New to Burn" tackle the issues that all of us face these days, like doomed romance, a divisive political climate, and struggling to meet our own expectations. The result is an album with 11 very different songs that share the same huge, powerful sound and follow the path of rock music from its inception to its present.

Drunken Logic first took root when frontman Jake Cassman left an Ivy League school in order to forge a brand of music that
blends a myriad of influences with potent, topical lyrics. The first incarnation of the band formed at Berklee College of Music in 2012 — and ever since, Drunken Logic has been brewing an eclectic powder keg of alternative rock and indie folk in their shoddy Boston apartments....more
