Driftwood Soldier's New Album 'Stay Ahead of the Wolf' Out Now

Congratulations to Driftwood Soldier whose new album Stay Ahead of the Wolf is out today. Over the last three months, the inimitably gritty, gutterfolk duo from Philadelphia have released three singles and drawn acclaim from the likes of Billboard, Glide Magazine, Americana Highways and more. Owen Lyman-Schmidt's guttural, gravely voice and raging mandolin growling atop Bobby Szafranski's ominously tempered bass compose the band's distinct sonic-scape, which they skillfully enage to drive tales of injustice with force. Stay Ahead of the Wolf was produced with Erin McKeown, mixed by Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Devil Makes Three, Lucero, Violent Femmes) and mastered by Ryan Schwab (The Districts, Hop Along, Ron Gallo).

Earlier this week, Driftwood Soldier launched their album release tour with a hometown show in Philadelphia. They'll continue down the East Coast this month, hitting major markets including New York and DC along the way. Full list of dates is detailed below.
