12 Stones released their second album, Potter's Field, which featured a heavier, more guitar-driven sound than their debut, in 2004. After taking a break from music to spend time with their families, the bandmembers reconvened to make their third album. Affected by the impact of Hurricane Katrina on their hometown, 12 Stones recorded Anthem for the Underdog in Memphis, Tennessee with Justin Rimer and Skidd Mills during the better part of 2006, and the album was released in 2007. During the pre-production for their fourth album, Dorr returned to the fold -- he had been gone for five years beginning in 2004 -- and 12 Stones added Mike McManus as their new drummer. The first fruits of this new lineup appeared as the summer 2010 EP The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday. Later that year, the band parted ways with Wind-Up
, signing with Executive Music Group
for their next effort. In 2012 the band reunited with Underdog producer Mills for that fourth outing, Beneath the Scars, which featured the singles "Bulletproof" and "Infected."
Work for their fifth effort began after they signed with Cleopatra Records
in 2016. Picture Perfect arrived in the summer of 2017. ~ Bradley Torreano, Rovi
