earMUSIC in collaboration with Loud & Proud Records today announced the signing of Nashville-based band, The Delta Saints and will release “Bones” on September 4th , 2015, the follow up to 2012’s Death Letter Jubilee that Pop Matters hailed saying the band, “…mix Lynyrd Skynyrd swagger with Kings of Leon angst and a touch of that old-time gospel to create a heady, intoxicating mix.”
Produced, engineered and mixed by Third Man Records alum, Eddie Spear [Jack White, Arctic Monkeys, Neil Young], Nashville’s Sputnik Sound studio provided a ghostly, psychedelic atmosphere for the recording of “Bones”, yielding a sound uniquely their own. Stripping their roots/blues sound down to its essence, The Delta Saints’ second full-length effort expands on that sound and explores influences such as Jack White, The Black Keys, My Morning Jacket, Band of Horses and Led Zeppelin.
The Delta Saints are a global touring band, having spent the last eight years playing the U.S. and Europe averaging about 200 shows per year, organically growing their audience fan by fan, city by city, country by country. They have made several major festival appearances in the U.S. at Wakarusa (which they played again this year), Summer Camp, Harvest, The Ride, Summerfest and The Simple Man Cruise. A testament to their mixed appeal, they have opened for such diverse acts as Blackberry Smoke, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Taj Mahal, Dickey Betts and Michael Franti & Spearhead. Having a large international fan base as well, The Delta Saints have toured Europe a total of six times, selling out countless venues and playing hundreds of shows in Spain, Sweden, France, Switzerland and Germany, as well as several festivals in Holland (Moulin Blues, Ribs and Blues), Belgium (Gevarenwinkel) and Germany (Grolsch Blues Fest).
earMUSIC will release “Bones” worldwide excluding North America.
