From upcoming album due in mid October.
By Blurt Staff
A couple of years ago Raleigh, North Carolina’s rising indie-roots-rockers Jack the Radio released the outstanding live album Devil In Here, which our reviewer called “a remarkably beautiful collection of a dozen songs that recalls everyone from the Jayhawks to The Avett Brothers.” Now the group will release their first studio album in over three years on October 20th.
The album, entitled Badlands, featuring cover art by David Paul Seymour, is a twelve song, two-act musical journey inspired by sci-fi Spaghetti Western themes, and features guest vocals from Elizabeth Hopkins (from Durham’s Delta Rae, courtesy of Warner Bros. Records) and BJ Barham (of fellow Raleigh rockers American Aquarium).
Jack the Radio’s Moonlight is the first single off their new album, and we are very honored to be able to premiere it here for BLURT readers via the new video. The band describes it succinctly: “Following a lead, two men unearth a dark and hidden truth from the past.” Check it out:
