The Choir’s Burning Like the Midnight Sun was released to positive reviews in June, ending a five-year recording break that followed 2005’s O How the Mighty Have Fallen. Rather than have listeners wait another several years for more material, the band closes out 2010 with de-plumed, a collection of re-recorded, acoustic renditions of songs from past albums. Band members Derri Daugherty and Steve Hindalong are touring in support of the new albums, and their set list includes de-plumed‘s introspective variations as well as the stories behind the songs.
