Hello friends of Paradise,
We are now accepting pre-orders for the self-titled debut album by Promised Land Sound, one of Nashville’s finest and most fiery young bands. This impressive record finds them cooking up some serious red dirt/swamp boogie & country-fried soul choogle à la Jim Ford, Jesse Ed Davis, and Dennis Linde, with tunes that are singularly propulsive, but reflectively rooted in the finest Southern songcraft. William Tyler guests on guitar and provides spiritual guidance.
The group emerged from the fertile Nashville garage scene, and in short order, they’ve managed to attract the admiration of esteemed folks like fellow Nashvillain Jack White, whose Third Man Records released a live Promised Land Sound 7”, deeming them “one of our favorite local bands” and describing them thusly: “They’re all youthful scruff and bluff, and they crank out tunes that would be right at home in Link Wray’s 3 Track Shack or hanging with the specters of long lost 45s that haunt Nashville’s overflowing legend-filled cemeteries.”
To purchase the album, click the button below and select your preferred format(s). The vinyl LP is available in a limited edition, featuring heavy-duty jackets and a digital download coupon. The CD is housed in a gatefold wallet.
Pre-orders will begin shipping about two weeks in advance of the September 24 release date. All pre-orders include a link to an immediate 320k MP3 download of the track “Fadin’ Fast” (feat. William Tyler), which Paste kindly premiered last week.
Pre-order customers who order before September 14 will also be automatically entered into a drawing for a free copy of the Paradise of Bachelors release of their choosing (subject to availability.) Promised Land Sound will be available for digital-only purchase from this website and from major digital outlets on September 24. (For digital-only pre-orders, please visit our Bandcamp page.)
Our slack-jawed reaction upon first hearing Promised Land Sound live at The Stone Fox in Nashville abides: These dudes can play. You need to see them onstage–you won’t be disappointed. Stay tuned for more details, but for now, know this:
You can catch Promised Land Sound live–with many other incredible artists from the PoB roster and beyond–at the PoB/WXYC Hopscotch Music Festival Day Party on the afternoon of Saturday, September 7 at Raleigh Little Theatre’s Louise “Scottie” Stephenson Amphitheatre, just a quick 2-mile drive/walk/bus ride from downtown Raleigh. Save the date, and stay tuned for more details TBA!
