Philosophy of Time Travel
Album Synopsis ------------- 'The Philosophy of Time Travel' is Fayetteville, AR 5-piece Christmas Fuller Project's first full-length album. Entirely self-written, -recorded, and -mixed at their home studio in Springdale, it truly is a labor of love. With four contributing songwriters taking cues from straight-forward pop bands such as Death Cab for Cutie and Nada Surf to more experimental groups such as Wilco and the ever-influencing Radiohead, 'The Philosophy of Time Travel' achieves a wide array of sounds while still managing to sound cohesive. Band History ------------- Christmas Fuller Project is an indie pop/rock band originally from Springdale, Arkansas. Beginning as a joke between four high school friends who were all songwriters and guitar players, CFP became a reality when Cameron Heger and Aaron Hopwood committed to learning drums and bass, respectively. After a year of jamming and songwriting, they began developing their first few songs and booking their first few gigs. Inbetween practices and shows they worked on self-recording 5 songs, which became the rough but promising 'Milkhouse EP,' a collection of straight-forward pop songs released in May 2006, the end of their freshman year of College at the University of Arkansas. A few months after releasing 'The Milkhouse EP,' CFP began another batch of DIY recordings, which were of much higher sound quality. But soon the band's proposed second EP turned into it's first LP--a relatively experimental concept album, at that. Again, inbetween playing shows, the band recorded new material. Recorded sporatically over the span of an entire year, 'The Philosophy of Time Travel' was released on June 23, 2007 at a CD release party in their hometown to a great response. It is now available at shows, CDBaby.com, and iTunes. Just before releasing the album, Christmas Fuller Project added former Famous in May (fellow local band and friends of CFP) keyboard player Tyler Ceola to the lineup, which also includes singer/songwriter/guitar player Brandon George and songwriter/guitar player Nick Roland. CFP played one show as a 5-piece before spending summer '07 apart, due to Nick and Aaron leaving the country to go study abroad. They are now regrouping and preparing to gig again around northwest Arkansas and surrounding areas while continuing to write and debut new material.
