Dens recently announced a re-worked version of their 2020 release re-titled “Tamed Tongues which will be released April 30th via Facedown Records. Read the band’s statement below about the motivation behind the new project.

‘Wise’ is the fourth single from Dens’ re-worked and re-recorded album. Check out the video below.

From the band: “Each song from [2020’s] “Taming Tongues” was recast with an acoustic bent. We tried to faithfully represent the meaning of the originals while also giving the listener the chance to experience the lyrics in a completely new way.”

When we planned for “Taming Tongues” to be released in 2020, we had no idea what the year would bring. On the one hand, we were amazed at how timely an album about being slow to speak and quick to listen would end up being. This year has further solidified our conviction that it is absolutely imperative to handle words responsibly, empathetically, and with a firm conviction on truth. On the other hand, an album release in the middle of a global pandemic was far from ideal. Touring? Nope. Festivals? Nope. Live music in any venue? Nope.

Hailing from Richmond Virginia, Dens have come out with their sophomore album, “Taming Tongues”.  The band found their mission in using music as a platform to creatively and honestly explore themes of faith, hope, redemption, and grace.
