Blank Range Premiere "Ember In The Ash" With Stereogum

Blank Range Premiere "Ember In The Ash" With Stereogum

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

Stream "Ember In The Ash" via YouTube:

"'Ember In The Ash' is about rekindling old flames - knowing that the door is still open, and asking yourself, and someone you love, if you're still welcome inside," explains Zachary. "This song came to life in the studio organically. We had a completely different arrangement worked out before we went to the studio that day, but our initial arrangement wasn't quite hitting the way wanted. At one point, I ended up giving Grant my bass, Matt picked up some brushes and Brad Cook, who produced the song, hit record without telling us. The track was done before we knew we'd even started. It's an honest example of us searching for a hazier sound, one closer to how I felt while writing the song."

The Nashville Scene premiered "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..."

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 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.
