$26.00 Sold out

Pickup currently unavailable at Appleton Store

With his sophomore album, Shape & Destroy, Nashville-based artist Ruston Kelly documents his experience in maintaining sobriety, and finally facing the demons that led him to drug abuse in the first place. But while Kelly recounts that journey with an unvarnished honesty, his grace and conviction as an artist ultimately turn Shape & Destroy into a work of unlikely transcendence. Kelly says, "Making this record definitely taught me that I don't want to be selfish: I want to channel something larger than myself and give myself to the process as fully as possible, because these songs also become the story of whoever hears them. Whatever someone might get out of listening to this record and hearing me express myself in this way, it's completely theirs." The follow-up to 2018's Dying Star was recorded at Dreamland Recording Studios in upstate New York, and is co-produced by Kelly and Jarrad K (Kate Nash, Weezer). It's introduced by the lead singles "Brave" and "Rubber" and features back-up vocals by Kacey Musgraves, Gena Johnson and Abby Kelly. LP housed in die-cut outer jacket, mirror board with gold print inner sleeve.
