JOHN NOLAN will release his second solo album, Sad Strange Beautiful Dream, on July 27, 2015. Written and recorded over the past two years, the 10-track album was recorded in Long Island, New York with producer Mike Sapone (Taking Back Sunday, Brand New, Straylight Run) at the helm.
Nolan, best known for his work with Taking Back Sunday and as frontman for the now-defunct indie pop outfit Straylight Run, independently raised the funds needed for the recording through a PledgeMusic campaign, while partnering with NY indie label Collective Confusion to market and distribute the release. Over a dozen different pre-order configurations exist for fans and a portion of the proceeds will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Nolan will kick off a newly announced string of east and west coast dates later this summer starting in Philadelphia on August 19th.
