New album coming in 2015! Back in the studio!

Hey y'all.  We wanted to share some updates on our studio progress.  We have been busy writing and recording off and on for almost two years.  While we put out the live, stripped down album during that time we are focused and eager for you guys to hear our first studio album in two years.

So far we've created some of that traditional Jack the Radio mud-rock sound and some tracks mixed with a darker edge.  Last night was a productive session tracking vocals at ‪Warrior Sound‬ in Chapel Hill for the new album.

Here's a tease of a new track called "Leaves" with Chris laying down a harmony over George and A.C. vocal tracks:

Much more to come in the coming months!  Thank you all for your support and love this year!

Jack the Radio's "Wild West Woman" - NEW TRACK

On August 26th, 2014 North Carolina's Jack the Radio will officially debut their first new studio track since 2012 online (at jacktheradio.bandcamp.com) and as a limited 7-inch vinyl single.

After releasing the acoustic live-concert album Devil In Here last fall, the slide-slinging roots rockers have plugged in and hit the studio to record a fresh batch of songs that see them returning to form with the gritty, foot-stomping sound that helped earn them a solid reputation in the local music community.

Titled Wild West Woman, the two-track album will feature the new release "Wheels" as an A-side, and includes "Just What I Need (Reprise)" as a B-side. "Just What I Need" was first heard on Jack the Radio's debut album, and has been featured prominently on many national and international television placements. On a particularly restless day at Chapel Hill's Warrior Sound, the band decided to record an updated take on the tune reflecting its evolution over years of live performances.

This new track is the first teaser for the band's next studio album, tentatively scheduled for release in early 2015.

"Carolina Mud" on USA Network's Graceland

Sending a shout out to the fine folks at USA Network for using Jack the Radio's "Carolina Mud" during this great scene on last night's episode of Graceland!!!  We enjoy the show and great seeing our song used in a great scene with two ladies, a shotgun and talk of cheeseburgers.

Heroes Con / Sound Pure & PreSonus

A big hand to Seth Peagler, Shelton Drum and the Heroes Aren't Hard To Find crew for making the 2014 Heroes Con 'Drink and Draw' a major success.  The team raised a lot of money for Team Cul de Sac and Jack the Radio was glad to be a part of the event!!! Also have to give a shout out to the Hilton Charlotte Center City for being great hosts.

On a side note, George and Danny had the pleasure of demoing some stellar PreSonus Audio Electronics ADL700's at Sound Pure - Pro Audio, Guitar Boutique, and Durham Recording Studio with Allen Palmer and team with a newer acoustic tune entitled "Lonely's Found". Here's a link to the video -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUNXkV6l-oU

We had a blast last weekend at Walnut Creek Ampitheatre, to say the least. A sincere thank you to the crew and volunteers who made it a great event and a HUGE thanks to all the fine folks that came out to the event and helped Band Together raise over $600K for Communities in Schools in Durham and Wake County.
