Release date: September 2013
Water & Guns is the fifth solo studio album by American singer-songwriter Aaron Sprinkle, released on September 30, 2013 through Tooth & Nail Records. This is his first solo release in almost ten years.
"I started making a record that I thought people would want me to make, and ended up making a record that I just really enjoyed," Sprinkle confesses, explaining, "I wanted to portray who I am now. I wanted this album to reflect me. Musically it's an epic, pop album. Lyrically, it's a journal. The record's upbeat sound juxtaposes its heavy message in a flawless marriage of playful purposefulness."
With songs that deal with topics from grace and blessings to sin and death, Sprinkle furthers, "this record took so long because I changed my mind in the middle of it – I thought no, this is isn't what I want to do. I want to write about real things I'm dealing with."
