Finn’s Motel is releasing a new album, Fireworks or Lightning, on CD and vinyl via their own imprint, Victory Over Gravity Records. Originally scheduled for May1, 2021, the album was released last week since the CDs arrived early. CDs and digital downloads are available now from Bandcamp and soon to be in local St. Louis stores. The vinyl is being pressed and is estimated for arrival late July, early August 2021.
Fireworks or Lightning is a cinematic soundtrack to a story set in suburban and rural Illinois. It’s a tale of disaffected youth, vandalism, death, rebirth, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, and UFO sightings. “What was that we saw? Fireworks or lightning? Aliens or airplanes?” The album begins with thundrous rock, cruises through songs and song suites, and then ends…
…well, we’re not going to tell you how it ends. You’ll have to listen to find out.
To celebrate the early release, we also put out another video from the album:
