Sacramento duo Sister Crayon officially announced that they have changed their name to Rituals of Mine. The duo, which is Terra Lopez and Dani Fernandez, released a statement that read in part: “Change is always scary territory but we feel that the Sister Crayon name is something that no longer represents who we are. This project has undeniably grown.” The name change comes following the duo’s signing with Warner Bros. Records, who will release a remastered version of their critically acclaimed 2015 album Devoted on September 30th.
Produced alongside Wes Jones and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (The Mars Volta, At The Drive-In), Devoted’s initial release in 2015 landed it on many indie “Top Ten Albums of 2015” lists. Due to its ultra-limited initial release, Warner Bros. Records decided to remaster and re-release the album after the duo signed with the label in February of 2016. Devoted has been newly mastered by studio legend Tom Coyne (Led Zeppelin, Adele) and includes previously unreleased remixes and B-sides.
Devoted shows the band more refined; focusing primarily on heavy, electronic beats and primitive vocals. Recorded in two weeks in St. Augustine, FL, Rituals of Mine has a body of work that represents their trip-hop roots combined with futuristic production and vocal intensity.
Devoted is out September 30th on Warner Bros. Records.
