The Builders&The Butchers The Spark is the Builders 5th LP to date, and 3rd on Badman Recording Co., and features a wide array of sounds, while still being a Builders record at its heart. "The goal was to write shorter songs, to the point, and really work with the space on the record, not trying to cram an instrument into every spot, but really letting things breathe," explains singer Ryan Sollee. The songs for The Spark are a variety of tunes written over the last four to five years, as well as some weeks before mixing. Influences are later Tom Waits and White Blood Cells by The White Stripes. 5/19/17 release date on Badman Recording Co.
