Produced by Matt Bayles (Mastadon, The Sword) New Album Tells the Story of Spanish Explorer Coronado and His Fabled Search for the Seven Cities of Gold in Their Homeland, the Kansas Prairie.
"It's definitely our strongest work," says guitarist Aaron Moreland, who with Arbuckle and new drummer Kendall Newby teamed with Seattle-based producer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, the Sword) and recorded in Stone Gossard's studio. "We've always produced our own records, but this time, Matt took things to a new level sonically and brought out our best performances."
The sounds of 7 Cities are vintage rock ("Kow Tow") and twang ("The Devil and Me") with a few barnburners ("Tall Boogie", "Road Blind"), all of it rooted in the spirit of the Delta blues. "That strong pre-war blues sensibility is still there. We're still that rare trio with guitar, harmonica and drums, but we've progressed as musicians; we've brought in our other influences, and formed a pretty unique sound."
