Certain Stars goes back into HOWL Street Studios (Milwaukee) to record new material for an upcoming 2017 release. The band will add to tracks recorded at HOWL in May 2016, and also record new original songs that have been in the Certain Stars live set, and some that haven't been performed live.

Recording eight new songs, the band looks forward to working with Shane Hochstettler (HOWL Street Studios) again, as they did for 2012's The Great Destroyer album.

The band will release new material in late 2017, with more news about format and titles (singles/EPs/full length) as the recordings take shape.

Here is what they're saying about Certain Stars-

"...something tells me these Wisconsin hopefuls have the potential to open up that proverbial can of kick-ass".
The Big Takeover,

"This is a great rock CD with good songs, period.  Certain Stars excel by not taking themselves too seriously while still being able to rock out . . . just good songs, unique personality, and an overall fun CD."
The Songcast

"Certain Stars has made an album I can throw on in my car and just rock out to. Itís melodic pop in the vain of Big Star - very high energy, very simple, very driving and upbeat. Itís packed to the brim with crunchy guitars and chugging bass lines designed to get you dancing at a bar, or while cruising down the highway in June."
Matt Cohen- Delusions of Adequacy
