Philadelphia's most adventurous guitar pop band, Another Michael, are gearing up for the release of their new album Pick Me Up, Turn Me Upside Down, due out May 31st from Run For Cover Records. The album arrives hot on the heels of its sibling, 2023's Wishes To Fulfill, providing a more experimental counterpart and highlighting Another Michael's unending creativity.

The band's new album is still packed with the elements that make Another Michael so special--highly catchy melodies, inventive chord progressions, lush arrangements, and layered harmonies--all while venturing into rewarding untouched sonic territory. The album's lead single "Is There A World?" demonstrates this knack for bold songwriting. Stretching out over nearly five minutes, the song builds from a wandering piano line into a highly dynamic, multi-movement musical journey that would impress Paul Simon himself.

Like Wishes To Fulfill before it, Pick Me Up, Turn Me Upside Down finds Another Michael reveling in their love of song--creating and paying tribute to transcendent musical moments and celebrating the deeply personal relationship that can develop between a listener and music that they truly connect with. “Music is a medium of communication,” explains bassist Nick Sebastiano, “It’s not a purposeful decision to talk about music in our songs but it just inherently means so much to us. If something makes your heart sing, the audience is going to hear it.” vocalist/guitarist Michael Doherty adds, "I think good songs are just ones you can find yourself bringing with you all your life no matter where it takes you."
