Synopsis

Album Description
This spring will see the return to teenage promises when south Florida scene veterans, THE AGENCY, release their new CD on indie imprint Perch Records. Turn is THE AGENCY's third release following 1997's Rock to the Apocalypse and 1999's Engines on Fiddler records. The record chronicles love, loss and leaving in heartfelt vignettes that THE AGENCY has worked at perfecting since forming in 1995. Growing up in the cohesive, oftentimes incestuous local music scene of south Florida, Drummer/vocalist Mike Marsh, (DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL, SEVILLE) guitarist Klaus Ketelhohn and bass player/vocalist, Chris Drueke (SEVILLE) have played music together, in one form or another, for the better part of a decade. THE AGENCY played from 1995 until 2001 without stop before going on hiatus. They continued on as a side-project for many years with on-again/off-again breaks between Mike Marsh's hectic touring schedule as drummer of DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL. Now, the band is a fully realized endeavor for all three members. Mike Marsh sums up the band's eternal magnetism, "THE AGENCY is going to always be a band because of friendship and a chemistry that are hard to stay away from for too long. We have stayed friends through a lot of bad decisions and made records that we are proud of through even tougher times." Recording, mixing and working on tracks since late 2004, Turn shows tremendous growth for all of THE AGENCY's players. Tracks bounce in many forms musically, hinting at chant-worthy power pop, tight and quick-pulsed indie rock, and introspective, well versed storytelling in the vein of well-worn Jawbreaker LPs and Ben Folds.
