Macstanley launches new album | BOKSBURG ADVERTISER 05 Oct 2012

POP-ROCK band MacStanley, formerly known as Flat Stanley, has just released their third album, Lucid, Alive and Dreaming. The album, the group’s first in five years, was mastered in New York, and is being released in South Africa by 2 Feet Music, an imprint of Sheer Sound. The new album retains the band’s unique sound but, in addition to the melodic pop songs they’re well known for, the album also contains some haunting ballads and a few edgier, harder rock tracks. Explaining their absence from the music scene for a while, band members Andy Mac, Clinton and Neil explains: “More recently we’ve been somewhat out of the public eye, but not idle. “During this time we’ve been working steadily on new material, pursuing various opportunities in Europe and building the fantastic support team that we are currently privileged to have around us. “We’re extremely proud of our new album and we can’t wait to share it with our fans.’ The band will perform some of their new tracks at the annual Heineken Symphonic Rocks concert, on October 6, in the Big Top Arena, Carnival City.

Like all truly world-beating bands, MACSTANLEY (formerly FLAT STANLEY) is greater than the sum of its parts. It started with the simple beginnings of big dreams, two chance meetings and a humble song-writing competition in Cape Town, and has grown to encompass sold-out shows across South Africa and Europe; pioneering work with a full orchestra; radio hits and a growing global fan-base. Throughout it all, Andy Mac, Clinton and Neil have upheld an unflagging commitment to giving their audiences songs that make music live beyond the stage-show, the album or the download. It’s a journey that’s taken them from club stages to stadiums and led to their greatest venture yet, a soon-to-be-released brand new 12 track album produced by Brian O’Shea and co-produced and engineered by Chris Tuck.

“Lucid, Alive & Dreaming” is the new MACSTANLEY album and it marks their finest work to date – a collection of music that ramps up the sound of the band into a contemporary gear while retaining the signature elements that have brought this pop-rock powerhouse to where it is today. MACSTANLEY have shared stages with Counting Crows, Collective Soul and Metallica, to name a few; graced stages like the Coca-Cola “Massive Mix”, Levi’s “Rage For the Revolution”, Joburg Day and their own immaculately presented theatre-stage music nights. They’ve enjoyed massive airplay and several Top 10 singles on major radio stations across SA and Europe. With their last release, “Between 2wo Worlds” (2007) receiving a South African Music Award nomination, all eyes – and ears – are on this new album.
