ALIGN IN TIME is the musical alias of John Boles. He will release his second album, On a Spiral, on June 19, 2020. The album was produced by Bryan Russell (Volbeat, Envy on the Coast, Twin Forks) and mastered by Mike Kalajian (Circa Survive, Saosin, Moving Mountains) and the new song “Finish It” has just been unleashed for streaming below!

Boles sees its restless transition between moods and genresβ€”from anthemic lead single “Finish It,” to the prog-rock explosion of”Headlong,” to the aching introspection of closer “I Go Too”β€”as a reflection of the experiences that informed the music:

β€œI wrote this album to remind me of who and what I love and have lost. And those aren’t isolated emotional eventsβ€”they recur, they converge and conflict with each other, they’re constantly subject to reinterpretation. I’ve tried to capture that feeling of never having your perspective or your sense of purpose figured out.

The result is an urgentset of songs with a narrative flow that allows for new discoveries on each listenβ€”among them, thematic ties to Align in Time’s first album,Me & My Arrow, released in 2011. Muchlike that album, On a Spiralnever settles in one place for very long, but Boles notes a common thread throughits songs: β€œI’ve grown to appreciate in the past eight years that optimism doesn’t endure just by virtue of what it is. It’s something you have to work at. I hope thatothers can find some inspiration and solace in how that’s conveyed in my music.”
