Stabbing Westward: With a new single, "So Far Away" already picking up steam at Alternative and Rock radio, the May 22nd release of Stabbing Westward marks the first in a series many new exciting beginnings for quintet. With "So Far Away" leading the way, Stabbing Westward sees the band leaning in a new modern, compact, melodic direction. Produced by Ed Buller (Suede, Crystal Method, Ben Lee) and mixed by Tom Lord-Alge (Wallflowers, Hole, Live), Stabbing Westward's new approach is the artistic realization (ten years in the making) to capture the imagination by treading new waters without losing the attack of previous favorites like "Save Yourself", "What Do I Have To Do" and "Shame." As the band admits, "After two years of musical soul searching, we have finally finished our 4th album. When we began the process of writing a new record, we soon discovered an overwhelming desire to take our music in a new direction. With a new label, a new guitar player and a new sound, this is both an evolution and a new beginning. We are proud to share our new album with you."


In other news, after a successful 3-album run with Columbia Records/Sony, Stabbing has joined forces with a new music company KOCH Records (part of the KOCH Entertainment music family). The label is thrilled to welcome the quintet to its burgeoning roster. SW also welcomes to its ranks the addition of a new touring guitarist Derrek Hawkins. New York based, Derrek brings to the plate a wealth of musical expertise. He's also prominently featured on the soon to be released new record.
