Aaron Gillepsie Releases New Solo Acoustic Album, Out of the Badlands

Aaron Gillespie has officially released his new album Out of the Badlands on Tooth & Nail today! Fans can purchase the album now via Aaron’s official website, iTunes, or wherever you buy music. The 10-track album was recorded and produced by Gillespie in his own recording studio, Soundcave, in Salt Lake City, Out of the Badlands is comprised of reworked songs from Underoath and The Almost, two cover songs, and three original tracks.

Out of the Badlands is a mix of old and new. Writing this album was a therapeutic release for Gillespie who recently went through a divorce earlier this year. He says, “This is the healing process, this record, and the making of it pulled me through”. With refreshed versions of the Underoath classics like “A Boy Brushed Red Living In Black and White” and “Reinventing Your Exit”, The Almost fan-favorites including “Say This Sooner” and “Southern Weather”, covers of “Where The Streets Have No Name” by U2 and “Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Rait, as well as new original tracks, including “Raspberry Layer Cake”, which was released by Gillespie last year, the acoustic album is raw and has something for everyone.
