Champion: one word that makes a complete statement, and is also coincidently the title of THE AUDITION’s sophomore release. With a multitude of pop-punk peers on the scene, Champion is the record that will separate THE AUDITION from the cookie-cutter acts springing up around every corner. This outing finds THE AUDITION bringing back the same danceable rhythms and sing-along choruses as their first album Controversy Loves Company, but with a more adult and sensual feel. This new bout of maturity can be attributed to the time that has lapsed between albums. The band recorded Controversy at the median age of 19, and it’s apparent with Champion that the band’s songwriting and delivery have ripened with a confessional and intimate sheen. “We named the record Champion because it’s a statement,” Drummer Ryan O’Connor says, “It tells everyone in one word what we think our record is.” THE AUDITION will welcome Champion into stores January 22.
