HalfNoise Announce New Album; Stream New Song

HalfNoise will release their new album, Natural Disguise, on October 4th. Today they’ve released the new single “Boogie Juice” and pre-orders are now up.

HALFNOISE, the Nashville psych-rock project of multi-faceted artist Zac Farro, has announced the release of their new studio-full length Natural Disguise – due out October 4th via his artist collective Congrats Records. Natural Disguise is the first LP fully self-produced by Zac and is the band’s most fully-realized body of work to-date — a culmination of the classic rock influences progressively heard across the band’s most recent releases The Velvet Face EP and Flowerss (EP).

Along with the announcement of Natural Disguise, HALFNOISE has released the new groove-led and fuzzed-out single “Boogie Juice” with a music video co-directed by Zac and shot vertically on film . The cut follows several other inspired music videos he’s made for both HALFNOISE (“Who Could You Be” & “French Class”) and Paramore (“Fake Happy” & “Told You So”) and features trippy vignettes of the band’s live members/collaborators. All of this comes on the heels of HALFNOISE releasing the first single from the new album — “Who Could You Be” — earlier this year, a string of sold out shows in LA, NYC and Nashville, and a busy summer festival season that saw the band playing stages at Bonnaroo, BottleRock, Firefly, Electric Forest, The Great Escape (UK), and more.

Zac first made a name for himself as the drummer of Paramore at 14, but in the 15 years since that band burst onto the scene, the now 29-year-old has become much more — an accomplished producer, photographer, and music video director who surrounds himself with a cohort of artist friends. The new album started with a new year’s resolution. Zac wanted to reveal more of himself to the world. He started listening to music of the ‘60s and ‘70s, and was moved by those bands’ unvarnished authenticity. After a year spent writing, recording, and attempting to live in a more honest way, the album came into focus. It’s Zac as we’ve never seen him before.
