ABSOLUTExclusive: Transit Song Premiere

Posted by - 05:49 AM on 03/26/13

We have our own version of March Madness this week, as we have another great premiere following up yesterday's fun. One of this site's favorite bands, Transit, will be releasing its new album, Young New England, next week. As we inch closer to April 2nd, we'd thought we give you another small taste of the Boston quintet's second album on Rise Records. The song is "Weathered Souls," and it's one of my favorite tracks on the new LP. Featuring Joe Boynton's always-honest lyrics and needling guitar riffs that won't leave your head, this song is bound to be a new fan favorite. Check it out in the replies and don't forget to pre-order Young New England here. Also, don't forget that the band is heading out on "The Young New England Tour" tour this spring with All Get Out, Seahaven, and Young Statues - the dates for which you can find in the replies as well.

Liking the new graphics that you guys have associated with the exclusives!

This release somehow snuck up on me... As well as the month of April.

Can't wait to listen to this when I get the chance. Nothing Lasts Forever was so good.

EDIT: I quite liked that. Much more reminiscent of the Listen and Forgive sound than Nothing Lasts Forever.

All these new songs this week have been winners. FOB, TWY, and Transit all put out awesome tracks in the last few days. Making me really excited for this spring.

This is much better than Nothing Lasts Forever... I know this album will be awesome! I have a feeling some people on here might think this song is overproduced compared with everything they've put out previously

I like this, but I can't help thinking that a different singer could handle that chorus far better than Joe. I usually like his voice a lot, but something about it sounds weird here.

I really loved their last two albums, but I am not feeling the two songs released from this album so far.

Definitely one of the three best songs on this record. Or my three favorites, anyway.
