Band with campus roots releases new album

Tim Herron Corporation, a band consisting of former and current Oswego State students, is currently touring central and upstate New York to support the release of their third studio album, "Trivium."

The album merges a plethora of cultural influences, including reggae, Irish tune, zydeco and rock, into a broad genre called "Ameribeat." As a theme, the 11 tracks of "Trivium" focus on human relationships; failure between romantic partners, mourning the loss of a sibling in combat and a comical track describing the difficulties of being a CIA operative attempting to salvage his social life.

The band will perform on Friday, Nov. 6, in the Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse at 10 p.m. (tickets are available for $10 on the band’s Web site, http://www.timherroncorporation.com) and again on Saturday, Nov. 7, at 9 p.m. in Greene’s Ale House in Oswego with Closer Still as the opening act.

"Trivium" is available on the band’s Web site as a "pay what you want" download, according to Jerritt Wahrendorf, the band’s drummer. Each track from the album can be obtained for a named price or as a free download.
