Americana
fans, mark your calendar for September 29. That’s
when one of BLURT’s fave songwriters, Will Hoge, serves up his newest album.
Titled The Wreckage (Rykodisc) it’s
his first 2007’s acclaimed Draw the
Curtains
and features eleven new songs of heartfelt choruses and raw,
emotive power that recall the classic American-heartland music of Springsteen
and Petty. The Wreckage curses life’s
wrong turns and celebrates its triumphs.

 

Hoge knows of what he sings:
he was temporarily sidelined by a serious traffic accident in 2008 on his way
home from a recording session. After spending several months recuperating, he
completed the album and recently returned to the stage with a string of sold
out hometown shows in Nashville.

Recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium with producers Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle
Tupelo) and Charlie Brocco (George Harrison) and mixed by Jim Scott (Tom Petty,
Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash), the new album is being called his “most
impassioned” record to day, full of “rugged and powerful rock ‘n’ roll crafted
with a depth of sound and musicality that undeniably breaks new ground for
Hoge.”

 

There’s a really nice Hoge
piece that was posted this week at Direct Current. Go HERE to check it out. And
give a listen to this kickass new track from the album, too:

incidentally, penned a terrific tour diary for us back when we were known as Harp mag (thanks, Will!) – is hitting
the road. Tour dates at http://www.willhoge.com/tour
