The Secret Life of Sofia - Seven Summits Out Today

When we last checked in with The Secret Life of Sofia, they assured us the release of their debut full-length Seven Summits was "semi-imminent". And after weeks of hand-assembling 500 limited edition copies, they've emerged from their impromptu sweatshop to announce that as of today the wait is officially over!

To get your mitts on one of the limited edition copies, you have several options. Firstly, you can head over to their site right HERE and have it shipped to you for $12 (includes shipping).

OR, if you're like us and have one of those semi-fetishist collection compulsions, lead singer/guitarist Kyle Wilson tipped us off that the lower-numbered copies (they are all hand-numbered after all) are currently stocked at Etherea and Sound Fix (and he assures us that #1 of 500 is on the shelves at Etherea) for $8.

And of course, the band will also be selling copies at all future live shows for $10, their most recent string of dates listed after the jump along with some interesting info about the inspiration behind Seven Summits....

Wilson posted a MySpace bulletin late last night/early this morning detailing the stories and characters behind the songs on the album. As he writes:

"All of the stories on Seven Summits are at least partly true. Some are completely true, and were told to me firsthand. Some are more like historical fiction. All of them, I hope, are respectful to the parties involved, most of whom I have great admiration for.

The idea of writing the album Seven Summits first came to me on a climb of Long's Peak in Colorado. The experience was life changing, and I soon became intoxicated with the drive to climb more peaks. I also became fascinated with the stories I was hearing from other climbers and reading in books.


So it's a limited edition, hand-numbered concept album? Shoot, we like where this is going.....

Listen:
"Outside"
"Fifty Fourteeners"
