July A.D. “Missing” (12 songs; Apple Music) (Deccagone, April 30)

“About two years ago, we had some very meaningful recording sessions but were hesitant in releasing a new album,” July A.D.’s Mario Cirillo tells P&P. “We really liked the songs but agreed it needed a unifying song to bring it all together. Enter this pandemic and all of a sudden we wrote the song that made the others whole. It fit so well we titled the album after the new song and that’s how ‘Missing’ came to be.”
