FIRST STUDIO ALBUM ON HIGH COUNTRY RECORDINGS
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.
