Interiors is the second studio album by the American rock band Brad. It was released on June 24, 1997 through Epic Records.

Overview[edit]

The album's recording sessions took place from December 1996 to January 1997 at Studio Litho in Seattle, Washington. Studio Litho is owned by guitarist Stone Gossard. The band worked with producer Nick DiDia. The album was mixed by DiDia and Brendan O'Brien. The album featured a more polished sound compared with the band's debut album, Shame. Interiors was met with poor sales, however the band saw its cult audience expand.[4] The lead single from Interiors, "The Day Brings", features Mike McCready from Pearl Jam on lead guitar. The album charted at number 30 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart. Tom Moon of Rolling Stone said that "what's most notable about Interiors...is the pure pop focus of these nuanced compositions."[3] A music video was made for the song "The Day Brings". Interiors was accompanied by a tour in the United States and Canada in 1997, as well as a small tour in Australia and New Zealand in 1998.
