ALGIERS RELEASE DAY – EUROPE

Our new album is out today in the UK and much of Europe.  It’s called Algiers, named after the neighborhood in New Orleans where the bulk of the music was recorded.  Our longtime friend and co-producer Craig Schumacher, along with the staff at The Living Room Studio, did an incredible job capturing the energy and ambiance of the new songs. Algiers is full of the variety and dynamics that have long been associated with our band’s sound, including the instrumentation that we take with us on tour: trumpets, keyboards, vibraphone, steel guitar, acoustic bass, nylon string guitars and John’s vintage drums.  We’re really proud of our new album.
