New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert will release a new 7″ under his What’s Eating Gilbert project on June 19th via Paper + Plastick Records. The two-song 7″, entitled ‘The Nashville Session’, is the fourth release from What’s Eating Gilbert.
‘The Nashville Session’, which will be released in digital and vinyl formats, was produced by Chad Gilbert and Jon Howard at The Anchor Room in Nashville, Tennessee. It follows up three What’s Eating Gilbert releases, the ‘Thinking ‘Bout Her’, ‘Dear God’ and ‘What I’d Do’ EPs on Epitaph Records. The Nashville Session is the first What’s Eating Gilbert release since late 2010.
‘The Nashville Session’ features the characteristic ’50s-style pop sounds of the What’s Eating Gilbert discography and infusing a pop-punk tilt from Gilbert’s career with New Found Glory. The more uptempo ‘The One’ complements the swingy vibe of ‘Lonely Road’. The latter of the two songs is an introspective look into Gilbert’s thoughts about tour life, following his pattern of introducing personal experience into What’s Eating Gilbert songs.
