The Infamous Stringdusters: New Album, Spring Tour 2012


The Infamous Stringdusters
The Infamous Stringdusters announce the release of their latest studio album, Silver Sky, set for national release on March 13. The album marks a period of massive change and growth within the band, as well as explosive growth to audiences around the country. This transition is audible on Silver Sky, with many novel approaches for the band including some alternative instrumentation (keys, horns, drums), a new producer, and the move to a five-piece band.

Since their last release, We’ll Do It Live, the acoustic string band has been moving away from their bluegrass beginnings, towards an eclectic, genre-less sound that powers their high-energy live performances. A key catalyst for this change is the Stringduster’s first outside-the-genre producer, Billy Hume, known more for his work in hip-hop (Nas, David Banner, Ludacris).

Another major move has been going from a six-piece band to a five-piece (parting ways with founding mandolin player, Jesse Cobb). These two elements have lead to a looser and more energetic band on stage, in the studio and carried over to their business.

Bringing more decisions and partners in-house, The Stringdusters recently formed their own record label, High Country Recordings, and have appealed to their growing fan base to help support their efforts. A newly-launched Pledge campaign offers the chance to invest in the band and gain some pretty cool experiences in return, such as dedicated songs from the stage, or live-video Skyping to a Stringdusters rehearsal session.
