The Howlin' Brothers to Release New Album April 29

Posted on March 5, 2014 | by Amber von Nagel

Yet another exciting album release has been announced for 2014: On April 29, the Howlin' Brothers will release Trouble, the follow-up album to 2013's critically-acclaimed Howl.

Like its predecessor, Trouble was produced and engineered by Brendan Benson of the Raconteurs and solo career fame. The Howlin' Brothers signed to Benson's label, Readymade Records, in February 2012, and Benson has been singing the band's praises ever since. About the new album, Benson said in a press release, “The Howlin’ Brothers are somehow able to conjure images of a bygone era and make it believable. Trouble is all over the map and I don’t just mean figuratively. The listener gets a glimpse into the troubadour lifestyle, traveling (among other places) to Louisiana for a Cajun romp on the bayou and across the Arizona desert to California on a search for a misses. It’s a journey very much worth the while."

We here at Acoustic Guitar are looking forward to the new album from these talented AG cover boys. Until then, we'll be listening to our favorites from Howl and The Sun Studio Session EP. We're especially fond of this performance of "Gone" in the above video. Love that slide banjo action.
