Delta Spirit Premieres New Track, 'Live On'



"Live On," the latest track off Delta Spirit's anticipated new album Into the Wide is streaming now at Stereogum (http://bit.ly/X9EHyU). The song, which the band teased in an album trailer video (http://youtu.be/WqcrPa83__U), serves as a preview to the upcoming record.



The album's lead single "From Now On" is receiving early critical acclaim-Consequence of Sound hails, "The track has a booming chorus, as frontman Matt Vasquez warmly sings, 'From now on, I'm gonna be a friend' over soaring, arena-ready guitars" while WXPN The Key furthers, "'From Now On' is catchy, likable, and gets you excited to hear the rest of the album."



Into the Wide was born in a flood-ruined, cave-like, rat-colonized room in Brooklyn. The band spent more than a year writing together in the windowless studio they rebuilt after Hurricane Sandy, a process Esquire says has "yielded some of the most stunning songs of their career to date."



When it came time to record, the band relocated to Maze Studios in Atlanta and teamed up with producer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter), who helped breathe new life and brighter energy into the songs while still capturing the claustrophobia of their creative writing space in New York.



To celebrate the release and honor the city where most of the band resided during the record's conception, Delta Spirit has added three headlining New York City dates in three consecutive nights to their extensive fall tour. See below for details.



Formed in 2005, Delta Spirit is Matt Vasquez (vocals, guitar), Will Mclaren (guitar), Jon Jameson (bass), Brandon Young (drums) and Kelly Winrich (multi-instrumentalist, vocals). The critically acclaimed band has had numerous television performances including "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," "Conan," "Last Call with Carson Daly" and "Later with Jools Holland," as well as relentless touring and festival appearances worldwide including Coachella, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo among many others. Their 2012 self-titled release charted #1 on Billboard's Heatseekers and was praised by Rolling Stone for its "broader sonic palette." In 2013 the band had an original track titled "Running" featured on AMC's hit series "Walking Dead." Into the Wide is the band's fourth LP and first for Dualtone.
