Delta Spirit Releases Single 'From Now On'
"From Now On," the lead single off the anticipated new album Into the Wide from Delta Spirit, is now streaming at Esquire (http://bit.ly/1lPTiIw) who explains "Into the Wide...brings about some of the hard, sinister truths explored on their earlier effort History from Below while channeling some of the invigoration Delta Spirit provided, and the urban landscape they sought out had a lot to do with that." The album, due September 9 via Dualtone Records, is available for pre-order now with a free download of the single as well as "Push It" and "Patriarch." To support the release, Delta Spirit will tour nationwide throughout the fall. See below for full track listing and tour routing details.
Additionally, fans who pre-order Into the Wide through the Dualtone store can gift the three instant gratis tracks to a friend. Of the new single, Matt Vasquez (vocals, guitar) reflects, "...it just felt like we were doing the first record again, where we were having so much fun in a cabin. It's just one of those songs you write and you think back on eight, almost nine years of solid friendship, a decade-plus in some cases."
The new album was born in a flood-ruined, cave-like, rat-colonized room in the band's new hometown of Brooklyn. Delta Spirit spent more than a year writing together in the windowless studio they rebuilt after Hurricane Sandy. "That sense of feeling trapped in our studio and in the city definitely gave the album more of a weight than our previous records and played a big part in this being our moodiest recording yet," notes Kelly Winrich (multi-instrumentalist, vocals) of the experience. 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. Of the recording process, Brandon Young (drums) explains, "One of the most
important things was getting back to all of us being in a room together for every single song and recording everything live."
Formed in 2005, Delta Spirit is Matt Vasquez (vocals, guitar), Will Mclaren (guitar), Jon Jameson (bass), Winrich and Young. 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.
