Semi Precious Weapons recently relocated from New York City to Los Angeles where they began collaborating with Grammy award-winning, multi-platinum, mega-hit maker “Tricky” Stewart (Beyoncé, Rihanna, Frank Ocean) on new material, before signing to his new RedZone Music label venture, RedZone Records. The band worked with Tricky writing and recording, for much of 2012 and 2013, before putting the finishing touches on what the band calls “the album we had always hoped to make.” An evolution of sound, Aviation seamlessly blends the band’s dance punk and future now rock approach with Tricky’s powerful pop and urban influenced production.

“Our goal for this new album was to just write the best songs we could, and have the sound be whatever it needed to be to serve each song,” says singer Justin Tranter. “Working with our dream producer Tricky Stewart gave us the inspiration to use textures from all the different kinds of music we love, not just straight up rock and roll, which was really freeing. It made it so we didn’t have rules while writing, it was just about what felt right.

“The sound of the band is one that appreciates the greatness of all genres of music. Their records are made organically and what’s heard is unobstructed to the fans,” says Stewart. “This is absolutely one of the most important projects of my career. It gives you a glimpse not only into my past – but my present, and future. I feel like we’ve created something special that will stand out in the world!”
