Blank Range Release Debut Album 'Marooned With The Treasure'

Nashville's Blank Range have released their debut album Marooned With The Treasure via Sturdy Girls Records distributed by Thirty Tigers. This release makes the band's first full length album after three years of touring the country heavily behind their first two EPs Phase II and Vista Bent.

Marooned With The Treasure is now available for purchase and streaming at all major retailers.

Noisey premiered "Opening Band," the first track to be released from the debut album. Annalise Domenighini said, "It's a great example of how, sometimes, a song just needs to be simple to be good... Jon Childers' vocals resemble a southern-fried Bob Dylan."

Recently, Stereogum premiered "Ember In The Ash" and called it a "A sunrise slow-drift accented by weeping slide guitar."

The Nashville Scene shared "Seemed Like Word Got Around" and said, "...their sound has crystallized a bit, leaning toward rock flavored with sounds of the desert, with canny narratives..."

Over the last three years Blank Range has traversed the country supporting artists like Benjamin Booker, The Wild Reeds, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, The Mountain Goats and many more.

Late last year, the four piece band comprised of Grant Gustafson (guitar & vocals), Jonathon Childers (guitar & vocals), Matt Novotny (drums & vocals) and Taylor Zachry (bass & vocals) traveled to Durham, NC to record the album with producer Brad Cook (Hiss Golden Messenger) at Overdub Lane in just four days.

Blank Range will showcase at AmericanaFest 2017 on September 14 at Third Man Records at 11:45 PM and will hit the road with Jessica Lea Mayfield. Find a full list of tour dates below.
