Originally slated to hit shelves and digital retailers on September 6th, 12 Stones have announced that they will be delaying the release of Only Human until March 27, 2012. Only Human is the bands first release in over 4 years, so the fan anticipation and support has been amazing, and can be seen on any of the bands social media outlets. The band has released an official statement regarding the date change, and the album’s content.
“While immersing ourselves in the mixing process of our new album, we’ve realized that we need more time to give our fans the best record possible and therefore it won’t be ready to be released in September as we had originally planned. It will be out early next year. We want to make sure the music’s absolutely perfect and to everyone’s liking. Thanks for your patience and understanding. We’re going to give you the greatest 12 Stones album yet!”
As singer Paul McCoy recently explained to Revolvermag.com: “One of the things that I love about this record is that there are so many different things. We’ve got some songs that are really heavy and then some really nice songs that have a full orchestra behind them. There’s a lot of variety on this record. Those 12 Stones fans that like the heavy stuff, we’ve got something for them. And the 12 Stones people who like ‘Lie to Me’ and stuff like that, we’ve got plenty of songs in there for them as well. This album’s our most mature for sure.”
