Everything's the Same But in a Different Place
The Ring of Truth story began with John Peel adopted debut single, 'The Horse', described by Everett True as a small-town documentary set to an r'n'r backdrop. Inextricably linked with Sound Archive Recordings, a label Record Collector have referenced as being ordinarily fascinated only by artists to the left-of-centre, Ring of Truth return with their debut album. Entitled, 'Everything's the same but in a different place', as a point of departure Ring of Truth take a sonic journey from Lenny Kaye's 'Nuggets', the fire of the Bowery and London art-punk through post-punk Manchester and Glasgow, then onwards from the post-millennial NY and Scottish angular diasporas. EARLY REVIEWS FOR THE ALBUM: "...It's a strong performance from Ring of Truth, and I absolutely loved it. The album progresses well, going from the pop-rock, lighter fare of the opening, to more of a mellow tone in the middle, ending with the likes of "Smile" that are pure, unadulterated rock in all it's vibrant and energetic glory." Brian Murph, Independent Clauses, 28th May 2009 "With a debut this solid, our guess is that these guys have the potential to hit the big time in the near future..." Rating: 5+/6 Don W. Seven, LMNOP Reviews @ Babysue, 1st May 2009 "It seems as though the band draws upon almost every era in British post-punk to shape their sound... I suspect we'll be hearing a lot about Ring Of Truth very shortly" Rating: 8.5/10 Snobsmusic.net, 20th May 2009 "Everything's the Same But in a Different Place, which is set for a June 2009 release...is a sweet collection of songs that cannot be missed." Rating: 8.5/10 Anne L. Carrington, Indie Music Stop, 29 April 2009 "[Ring of Truth] are able to accomplish this due to the fact that the band itself works as a well-oiled machine with every band member bringing something to the table, an unfortunate flaw with most of today's rock bands." Rating: 3/4 Simon Mounsey, Static Multimedia, 9th May 2009.
