Into It. Over It. and Triple Crown Records are thrilled to debut "Spinning Thread", the first song off the new album Interesctions, out September 24th. The latest full-length album from the prolific Chicago based songwriter Evan Weiss, Intersection was recorded at the legendary Soma Electronic Music Studios by producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine). Into It. Over It. will tour this fall in support of the new album, including headline shows and an extensive run of dates this September and October as direct support for Saves The Day, and will celebrate the release of Intersections with a show at Schuba's in Chicago on October 25th.


Intersections is the culmination of the long trail of LPs, EPs, cassettes and splits with acclaimed artists like Daniel Johnston and Koji that serve as sonic mile-markers spanning the seemingly endless highway of Weiss' musical journey. He has always been an incredibly ambitious artist as evidenced by 2007's 52 Weeks project which saw Weiss writing, recording and releasing a new song every week, or his Twelve Towns series which saw him teaming up with six different artists to release six separate split 7-inches that each highlighted a different city a few years back. And when Over It. aren't on the road Weiss also plays bass with Polyvinyl Recording artists Their/They're/There (featuring American Football and Cap'n Jazz's Mike Kinsella) as well as the pop-punk act Pet Symmetry who are currently signed to Asian Man Records.

Weiss began working on Intersections with drummer Nick Wakim after Weiss returned from Into It. Over It.'s first U.S. band tour last year, and from the start they laid down a series of ground rules to ensure that the album would showcase another new side of one of the underground's most celebrated songwriters. Weiss decided he would write the entire album without using a guitar pick while Wakim-who laid down his tracks in between 12-hour shifts as an Emergency Medical Technician-strategically eliminated certain cymbals and drums in order to enhance his creativity. The result is an album as expansive as Weiss' musical vision.

Into It. Over It.'s fans have always connected to how honest the lyrics have always been, and that earnest quality remains on Intersections despite the musical evolution. "All of our records are almost hyper-personal to a fault and I've been trying to keep it that way since the beginning," Weiss explains. While the concept of the album started out centering around different intersections in Chicago, as the writing progressed it shifted toward intersections in Weiss' life, making each song a glimpse into where things were in the past and how that impacts today.
