The String Cheese Incident surprise-released a new EP entitled Into The Blue today. The four-song set marks the Colorado-based veteran jam act’s first non-SCI Sound Lab collection of new music since their 2017 LP, Believe.

Into The Blue consists of the title track along with Cheese originals “Hi Ho No Show” and “Dragonfly” as well as a cover of Peter Gabriel’s “Solsbury Hill.” The latter features members of The Infamous Stringdusters.

Multi-instrumentalist Michael Kang wrote “Into The Blue” after his mother learned she was suffering from an aggressive form of pancreatic cancer. “Kang says he saw his mother approach her diagnosis head on,” noted press materials announcing Into The Blue. “There didn’t seem to be any fear, or sadness. Instead, he saw her make a conscious decision to release herself of earthly matters and let the proverbial current carry her. A feat that seemingly can only be conquered once in a lifetime.”

The String Cheese Incident starts their spring tour next Thursday, April 21 at Ting Pavilion in Charlottesville, Virginia. A livestream is available via Volume.
