Upcoming Release: American Opera to Release “Small Victories” on June 30th via Spartan Records!

American Opera, the creation of NYC singer-songwriter John Bee, will release the debut full-length album “Small Victories” on June 30 .

A new song titled “Monsters Among Men” is premiering on Paste Magazine Stream here: https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2017/05/american-opera-releases-new-track-monsters-among-men-off-debut-album-small-victories.html.

Bee tells Paste, “This is a song about getting older while trying to stay true to who you were when you were young. I was raised in the church. Three things happened in my life that made me question everything I ever believed. My friend took his own life, my cousin’s life was taken from him, and the Sandy Hook shooting. I still don’t know what to believe. But I know what I want to believe.”

“Small Victories” is available for pre-order here and on iTunes. All pre-orders include an instant download of “Monsters Among Men.”

Most recently seen at SXSW and on tour with Carter Hulsey, American Opera will next play a short run of shows starting later this month, culminating with an appearance at Bledfest on May 27 in Howell, MI.

American Opera has toured the U.S. and Canada as both a solo act and with a full band, playing shows with the likes of The Avett Brothers, Josh Ritter, Cursive, Murder By Death, Owen, and William Elliott Whitmore and on Vans Warped Tour.

About American Opera:

Incremental progress. Monumental setbacks. Small victories. This is the story of American Opera. More than a record, Small Victories is a collection of moments, both devastating and victorious. Ominous nostalgia confronts hopeful reemergence. Sonically, think Manchester Orchestra meets Ryan Adams, Brand New meets Langhorne Slim — polished stones in a bed of gravel and grit. The result is a stunning eleven-song rollercoaster exploring a complete spectrum of emotion and experiences. It is an album of dynamics — a perfect balance of the fragile and explosive. By the end, we’re reminded that sometimes the small victories were all that mattered in the first place — and that the silver linings were not just that after all, but rather small glimpses of a larger hope that can sustain us through even the most miserable of seas.
