Unmanned are releasing their 4th album, Starbuilder. A concept album that follows the tale of a space creature and her family on a voyage to save the stars that feed her people from a consuming darkness, but that goes brilliantly awry. Love, trust, warmth, sacrifice, ambition, deception, possession, murder, execution, grief, confusion, abandonment, guilt, escape - all set to the sounds of Unmanned.
This album was mostly written after the release of Night Friends, before any of the songs on Favorites were drafted. To us, Night Friends felt like a collection of songs, and we wanted to try and do something that all flowed together. So we wrote the first 4 songs of this album, and while it was fun, it was also exhausting. So we decided to write more pop-oriented songs, and Favorites was born.
After Favorites, we turned back to Starbuilder and the story really came together, along with the last few songs we needed to complete the album. Recording began in September of 2017 with Evan Miles Anderson, who has contributed dedicated efforts into engineering and producing this album. Evan, you have our gratitude.
