"... a revelatory, demon-excising album that finds Glenn still wrestling with religion ... details his struggle between the earthly and the spiritual ... yet Glenn doesn't just want to throw spiritual struggles in your face, he wants you to dance, too ... the soul-baring lyrics are matched with plenty of stomping '80s-retro synths and beats that Neon Trees fans will find familiar. Ultimately, the dance floor is the church Glenn thinks everyone should belong to."
- The Salt Lake Tribune

Excommunication is the debut solo album from Tyler Glenn, lead singer of Utah band Neon Trees. The title refers to Glenn's renunciation of the Mormon faith he grew up practicing devoutly; a religion that condemns homosexuality. After he came out in a 2014 Rolling Stone interview, Glenn felt he had to break away and these songs outline his conflict. The singles Trash and especially Shameless are both personal and central to Glenn's departure from the church.

"I want to live without shame. I want to live without guilt. And, that’s something that I’m trying to unwire slowly. I think fear fuels a lot of media and society. I want people to feel empowered. I think Shameless is the anthemic moment on the record where I’m talking about God might save my life but also vodka might also save my life. All these new things I want to try ... I do live a life so shamelessly. I want to be bold in that way. Yeah, lyrically, it’s in your face."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
