We are very pleased to announce Head for the Hills’ third studio album Blue Ruin – available July 9th, 2013.
Meta-fictional sea shanties. Pop-infused newgrass murder ballads and urbane lyricism. Twang and punch. Head for the Hills’ third record, Blue Ruin, fuses bluegrass, jazz, hip-hop and indie rock into songs inspired by love and misery and comic books. Featuring twelve new original songs marked by inspired narratives and stellar musicianship, Blue Ruin showcases the quartet’s contemporary take on acoustic music; embracing the bluegrass pedigree while looking forward.
You can now pre-order the album, vinyl LP, limited edition screen-print poster and more at the Blue Ruin Mini-Site. Also be sure to check out “Take Me Back” from the album.
