Description

On Scars and Stories, The Fray transform their own turmoil into a stunning collection of songs that's markedly moodier than both 2005's How to Save a Life (the double-platinum debut whose title track graced the "Grey's Anatomy" soundtrack) and 2009's self-titled sophomore effort (a Grammy-nominated record featuring the smash single "You Found Me"). "There's a deep sense that we have no clue where we're headed or what's going to happen with us," says Slade of The Fray, whose lineup also includes guitarist/vocalist Joe King, guitarist Dave Welsh, and drummer Ben Wysocki. "We've gotten to the point where we're playing Singapore instead of a suburb of Denver, and it's nerve-wracking and exciting at the same time." Combine the chaos of fame with some personal struggles that Slade describes as "nearly devastating" for the band, and it's no wonder that Scars and Stories takes on a greater tension than its predecessors.
