New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Last month, Nashville's Blank Range released their debut album Marooned With The Treasure via Sturdy Girls Records distributed by Thirty Tigers. The band have just been named one of Rolling Stone's 10 New Country Artists You Need To Know.
Rolling Stone's Adam Gold said, "An increasingly country-leaning quartet born from Nashville's buzzing garage-rock scene, Blank Range's psychedelic grit and hooky, harmony-heavy songcraft have made the quartet pack-leaders in a Music
City where country and indie-rock lanes continue merging." On their debut album, Gold continued and said Marooned With The Treasure is, "Brimming with storyteller verses, bourbon-bathed choruses and transcendental bursts of shred by Gustafson - one of Music
City's most inventive guitarists..."
Last week, Blank Range showcased at AmericanaFest where they performed at Third Man Records following a set from Hiss Golden Messenger. The Nashville Scene reviewed the show and said, "Trading lead vocals and showcasing their road-tested chemistry, Blank Range carried the 'Local Bands It's Worth Coming to Town to See' torch. To us, Blank Range is rock 'n' roll, but if you're gonna call it Americana, it's Americana we can get behind."
Next month, Blank Range will kick off their fall tour with a special performance at Mercury Lounge on October 18 opening up Tyler Childers. On October 19, the band will kick off their tour with Jessica
Lea Mayfield in Allston, MA. Find a full list of tour dates below.
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."
Marooned With The Treasure is now available for purchase and streaming at all major retailers.
