Acmeville Records Partners with Nashville's Blank Range to Release IN UNISON On Vinyl

Acmeville Records is proud to announce its partnership with Nashville rock iconsBlank Range for the band's latest record. The album, titled In Unison, will be released on vinyl in April.

Acmeville Records was founded as the in-house record label for Acme Feed & Seed in order to empower Acme's mission of the discovery and preservation of Nashville's music and history. When the Acme team discovered that Blank Range was going on infinite hiatus to pursue solo projects, they sprang into action to ensure that the band's final album would be memorialized on vinyl in order to preserve this essential chapter in Music City history.

In Unison showcases the band fans have come to love while also highlighting its individual parts, with three of the members taking turns delivering lead vocals throughout the 10 tracks of the album. Recorded in an old Tennessee house north of Nashville, the group's sharp lyrics and raucous southern garage rock come together in an album that contains the soulful energy of a live performance.

Acmeville Records is excited to partner with the band for the limited edition 300-copy run of the album which will be available for purchase online viaTheAcmeNashville.com and select Nashville-based record stores including The Groove in East Nashville in April. The release will not only preserve the energy and artistry Blank Range has brought to the world of Nashville music; it also serves as a thank you to all of the fans who have followed the group during the years they've been working together.

Since Blank Range formed in 2013, the avant-garde indie group has been a force to be reckoned with on the Nashville music scene. Drawing on genres that range from jazz and blues to classic rock, Blank Range is a standout in a town that's full of musical talent. After winning the city's The Road to Bonnaroo competition in 2014, they went on to open for the likes of rockers Alice in Chains, Spoon, and Drive-By Truckers. Their debut album was crowned Nashville Scene's "Best Of 2017" Writer's Pick for Best Rock Album, and in 2018 they toured with Margo Price and Tyler Childers.

Blank Range has also been an integral part of the Acme Radio Live family, appearing on Acme Radio Live since 2017 and wowing audiences with raw in-studio sessions for songs such as "Haunt You," a track on the new album. Acme Radio Live has been honored to support the Blank Range journey over the past few years.

That's why it's all the more fitting that before the members transition into individual projects, they'll be performing the last three shows on the books this year as a group in conjunction with Acme Radio Live and Acme Feed & Seed. On April 13th, Blank Range will perform at Acme Radio Live's Record Store Day at The Groove, followed by three encore performances throughout the summer which will take place on the Acme Feed & Seed stage (dates to come).

"While we're coming to the end of one chapter in the Music City, we're also welcoming the next chapter of the individual artists in Blank Range and continuing to preserve their legacy," said Carl Gatti, Director of Entertainment and Radio at Acme Feed & Seed.

"Acme has provided a platform for musicians, and especially Blank Range, to get their craft out into the world for years," said the band's manager, Hampton Howerton. "The first vinyl pressing on Acmeville Records is a natural extension of their mission and it's a testament to the songs the band wrote and recorded that the folks at Acme felt the desire to preserve In Unison on wax."
