Sacra Via’s much anticipated debut album Smoke Signals will be released on Saturday, October 1. Created by Marietta natives, this album is everything we have come to expect from this group of amazingly talented musicians. Band members Justin Arthur, James Perrine, Dean Johnson, and Trentity Morehouse put their hearts and souls into the debut release, which contains a selection of expertly arranged tracks that will leave you wanting more. The band has an innovative sound that is entirely their own and this album showcases their ability to create music that appeals to all types of music lovers. All 14 songs on the album are original creations, including crowd favorites ‘Lunacy’ and ‘Noise’.
A year in the making, the album will first be available to the public at the band’s album release party at The Field in Newport, Ohio.
