Considering the amount of time that passed between the release of the last two albums from Seattle rockers Brad, a somewhat excrutiating eight years, I sort of assumed 2010's Best Friends was going to have to tide me over for a half decade at the very least. Thankfully the assume cliche did its thing as Shawn Smith and company have announced their fifth studio album United We Stand, set for an April 24th release. For the measley price of an email address, you can download the first single "A Reason To Be In My Skin" over at the official site. I'd recommend doing exactly that, the new song is a doozy.
