Today is release day for "The Anthem" - Hanson's 6th Studio album. Well, actually way past 6th if you include "Boomerang," "MMMBop," "Three Car Garage," and "Snowed In." But sure, 6th.
Last night myself and a few hundred of my closest NYC Hanson fans celebrated their 21st Birthday - as a band. Let me tell all of you doubters - they still have it, big time. They kept rocking for a solid two hours, and it was incredible. They started the night, cleverly enough, by playing the opening track to each CD they've released - well, all of the 6 major ones at least. It was like turning on each CD and launching in to the Hanson goodness. Ahhhh.
Anywhos, it was awesome. And tonight is the album release party where they'll (hopefully) play the entire new album from front to back. And I'll hopefully get there in time to see it. And continue to loose my voice because wow did I not have a voice after last night.
This is "Scream and Be Free" - a Zac fronted song that they played last night that got to me right away. It may mean nothing at all, but man did I love the idea of letting go.
