The Family Crest: Mr. Peabody & Sherman + New Album

THE FAMILY CREST TO RELEASE NEW EP AND KICK OFF NATIONAL HEADLINING TOUR THIS FRIDAY

  BAND MAKES AN ANIMATED GUEST APPEARANCEIN THE NEW SEASON OF THE MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN SHOW
This Friday April 28th, The Family Crest will release their new EP “Prelude To War” and kick off a 5-week national headlining tour in support.

Additionally, the band released a new song “Only A Minute” written exclusively for the new season of DreamWorks Animation Television's “The Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show” now streaming on Netflix. The band also has the privilege to say they’ve been animated for Episode 13 of season 4, where they float through a galaxy playing music in the stars with Shakespeare, Martin Luther King and Neil Armstrong.
“When I was given the theme of the episode: reflecting on historic figures and their forms of advocacy and using their mark as inspiration for what we can do now was really timely,” says songwriter Liam McCormick. “Right now the world seems filled with anger and divisiveness, and I think it must be extremely confusing for children. The idea that the producers had of looking backwards to see all of the people that worked peacefully throughout history to achieve positive outcomes is exactly what we all need to be exposed to right now. This was such a special thing to be a part of and we're really proud to have been included.”

“Prelude To War” is the first installment of a broader upcoming project “The War” and is earning early raves. NPR’s All Songs said first song Mirror Love "a track urging people to express their political dismay … extends into new sonic territory for the group, capturing the late '70s sounds of the Bee Gees in both beat and chorus.” Paste Magazine goes on to say "If their first released song, 'Mirror Love,' was a call to arms, then [new song] ‘Sparks' is a call to love - and a pretty convincing one, at that. The song is upbeat, strings-heavy and full of joyous emotion … if ‘Sparks’ is an indicator of what’s to come on the band’s new EP, it could be quite the hit album” 

“Prelude To War” is the follow up to the band’s LP “Beneath The Brine” which earned the group a spot on Paste Magazine’s “20 Best New Bands” and an album WNYC called "a complex and sweeping soundscape that gives every song a sense of cinematic scope as Liam McCormick’s soaring vocals shake the rafters.”
