Brand new album 'The Wolf You Feed' out 24th August 2012
We're excited to announce that Texan punk rockers the Riverboat Gamblers are joining the Xtra Mile Recordings family to release theirstunning new album The Wolf You Feed in the UK and Europe on 24th August 2012.
This is the sixth studio album from the prolific quintet of frontman Mike Wiebe, guitarists Fadi el-Assad and Ian MacDougall, bassist Rob Marchant and drummer Sam Keir and the first on Xtra Mile Recordings. Speaking of the new partnership Wiebe says: "The Riverboat Gamblers are proud to announce that we have dipped a feather in ink and signed with the UK based label Xtra Mile. The dark sounds of 'The Wolf You Feed' will be washing up upon the shores across the Atlantic in June. We are quite proud to be a part of the impressive roster and hope to spend much more time overseas delivering the greatest cultural exchange we have to offer in our loud loudmusics."
Teaming up with Grammy-Award winning engineer Stuart Sikes (The White Stripes, Cat Power) they set out to create a darker record that still had lots of hooks; a grittier, less polished sound to get across the true spirit of the band. Just a listen to the first fifteen seconds of the Hives-worthy opener 'Good Veins'shows that the bandachieved their goal largely because they weren't trying to make a record that fits into today's musical landscape.
