Billy Strings Announces New Album ‘Home’ & Confirms Fall Tour 2019
Billy Strings will release his sophomore studio album, Home, on September 27 via Rounder Records. Strings will support his Rounder debut with an extensive fall tour.
The multi-instrumentalist recorded Home in January with producer Glenn Brown, who was also behind the board for Strings’ debut album, 2017’s Turmoil & Tinfoil. Billy is joined on the LP by his band of banjoist Billy Failing, bassist Royal Masat and mandolin player Jarrod Walker. The quartet started work on the LP at Nashville’s famed Blackbird Studios’ Studio D over the course of six days before spending an additional week at Zac Brown’s Southern Ground Nashville facility.
Guitarist Molly Tuttle, fiddler John Mailander, tabla player John Churchville and dobro legend Jerry Douglas each contributed to Home. The album includes such songs as “Enough To Leave,” “Away From The Mifre,” “Running,” “Highway Hypnosis” and “Must Be Seven.”
Strings and his band kick off their fall tour with two nights at Terminal West in Atlanta September 5 – 6. The four-piece plays Red Rocks on September 15 before heading west via Salt Lake City for concerts in Nevada, California, Oregon and Washington. Billy Strings will then bring the tour to Texas, Arizona, Arkansas, Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia ahead of a trip to the Northeast that includes stops in Washington D.C. at a venue to be announced next month, Asbury Park, Boston and Brooklyn. The band concludes the jaunt in the Midwest with visits to Cleveland, Madison, Chicago and Covington, Kentucky.
Home will be available for pre-order on July 12. Tickets for fall tour dates are on sale now.
