Washington's Ruth release 'Anorak' project

Washington-based Ruth have their new Tooth & Nail album 'Anorak' released through EMI CMG in November. A press release explained their album is "titled after the British slang definition of an obsessive enthusiast, Anorak is a reference to a person who has an unfathomable interest in something and feels compelled to talk at length about it." The project was produced by acclaimed roster of Aaron Sprinkle (Copeland, Anberlin), Chris Keene (Surrogate, Number One Gun) and Kelsey Smith. The album was also mixed by Ken Andrews (Mae, Pete Yorn) and JR McNeely (The Almost, Relient K).

Said the band's frontman Dustin Ruth, "I would hope that the music we play is something a little more timeless. Hopefully whomever gets one of our albums 10 years from now, they're driving somewhere, and they can still listen to these songs and enjoy it. Our 10 year goal for the band is that no matter what, we would still be real, that we would still be who we are, no matter how many records we sold." CR
