Blank Range Share "Seemed Like Word Got Around" From Debut Album Marooned With The Treasure Out August 25

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) On August 25, Nashville's Blank Range will release 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.
Today, The Nashville Scene premiered "Seemed Like Word Got Around," the second song to be released from the forthcoming record.

"'Seemed Like Word Got Around' is a plea for acknowledgement, almost taken aback at the polarities of interpretation of reality," explains Grant Gustafson. "The topic of guns in America requires much context to have an honest discussion. This song doesn't make any progress, it doesn't suggest an alternative, it doesn't make any assertions, it merely means to bring denial into the spotlight."

"In light of the violence in America accompanied by the use of firearms there is no room for absolutist claims. The song was written in the days after the massacre in Orlando last year."

Noisey premiered "Opening Band," the first track to be released from the forthcoming 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."

Marooned With The Treasure is now available for pre-order at all major retailers. Visit Blank Range's website for exclusive merch bundles featuring limited edition Zippo lighters, posters and T-shirts

Over the last three years Blank Range has traversed the country, almost always as a support act, with artists like Benjamin Booker, The Wild Reeds, Black Joe Louis & 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.

Much of the inspiration for Marooned With The Treasure is the recent sobriety of singer Jonathon Childers. He recounts, "When you're consuming zealous amounts of a depressant everyday it's easy to lose the light. I was bummed on everything, probably myself the most, and the party had been over for a long time."

"My life is much richer now than it was. I'm present for the good moments, and there are plenty of them," asserts Childers.

After many years of traveling the country, the band is excited to finally release their debut album and hit the road once again.

"We've become so comfortable with each other over the years that the risks are easier to take but even more exciting," Zachry says of the band's camaraderie. "We're very focused on bringing out the drama in the music, finding the ups and downs and really sculpting them."
