WHAT IT IS: The five-piece alternative punk group’s fifth studio album uses singer Ross Farrar’s recent breakup as a platform to explore loneliness and emotional weariness, but it is by no means a purely sad album. Rather than look inward, Farrar uses his experience to write about what it means to go through something heavy and come out the other side a different person. The sound is abetted by producer John Reis, who honed his sound in seminal bands like Rocket From the Crypt, Drive Like Jehu and Hot Snakes. Much of the gravelly aggression he experimented with in those bands is present on Ceremony’s upcoming release.
