"I grew up around so much showbiz hype, hyperbolic flattery and toxic idolatry that I grew to detest any positive statement that contained a single drop of insincerity," says Joe Sumner, vocalist/bassist for transcontinental band FICTION PLANE, and also, incidentally the son of Sting. Their atmospheric and lyrically optimistic fourth studio album Mondo Lumina is set for a November 13, 2015 release via Rhyme & Reason Records. "The title means 'world of light'," explains Sumner. "It's about the ability to see the beauty in things, to see life in full color." "It also reflects where we all are in our lives, as fathers and husbands," adds drummer Pete Wilhoit. In addition, the band is currently routing dates around CMJ Music Marathon 2015 in New York City which includes the R hyme & Reason Records Showcase at Pianos on October 13th.
