Fruition Announce Surprise “Holehearted Fools” EP Release

Stream “I Can’t Stop”


Portland, OR quintet release Holehearted Fools EP on eve of hometown Halloween show at Revolution Hall in Portland, OR plus instore at Music Millennium  

Portland, OR’s own Fruition surprised fans this morning with a brand new 5 song EP entitled “Holehearted Fools”. The EP will be available immediately on CD at shows, and on all digital services. It will be followed in spring 2016 with a new full length album recorded during the same studio sessions that have yielded the new EP.  The band will mark the release with headline shows in Seattle tonight at the Tractor Tavern, and on Halloween for a hometown show at the new eight hundred and fifty seat Revolution Hall, where less than 50 tickets remain available as of this writing.  On Tuesday November 3rd, they return to Portland’s Music Millennium record store to perform selections from the new EP for fans.  Fans should keep an eye on their social media for clues, as band members will be signing a few copies of the EP and hiding them around Seattle and Portland this weekend for fans to find.

Fruition is hard to constrain to just one genre. Relix Magazine described them as landing “Somewhere between The Band and a string band,” and the Lot Scene called their performance at Telluride “Folk Rock at its finest.” The band is returning home after a busy summer that included performances at Red Rocks, Telluride Bluegrass, Bonnaroo, Wakarusa, Northwest String Summit and a win in the Willamette Week’s Readers Poll for Best Alt Country Act. Not content to stay in one place for too long, they return to Colorado for two headline nights at the Bluebird Theatre in Denver and one night at the Aggie in Ft. Collins. December will bring the band to Mexico for Strings & Sol, a destination festival that includes Railroad Earth, Yonder Mountain Stringband, Greensky Bluegrass and more plus a New Years Eve performance that will announce on Monday.

2016 will be a busy one for the band with a new album due in late spring on San Diego’s Randm Records, and a full year of touring that will start in February at Avon, CO’s Winter Wondergrass Festival.

The new EP and forthcoming album were recorded during several weeks in Portland’s Cloud City Studio and features new songs from Jay Cobb Anderson, Mimi Naja and Kellen Asebroek.
