Chuck Ragan’s new album Till Midnight will be released on March 25, 2014 via SideOneDummy Records. As a bit of a preview, he’s releasing a limited edition 7″ for “Non Typical” on February 25th. Vinyl can be pre-ordered here.
In addition, Ragan will be introducing a rebirth of his all-star backing band The Camaraderie through the first installment of his Live From SideOneDummy Sessions, which were filmed at SideOneDummy Records office in Hollywood, CA during November 2013. The Camaraderie consists of Jon Gaunt (fiddle), Joe Ginsberg (bass), Todd Beene of Lucero and Glossary (pedal steel, electric guitar), David Hidalgo Jr. of Social Distortion (drums), and Rami Jaffee of The Wallflowers and Foo Fighters (accordion, glockenspiel, organ). Watch their performance:
Till Midnight was produced, engineered, and mixed by multi-instrumentalist Christopher Thorn of Blind Melon behind the walls of Fireside Sound and Fonogenic Studios in Los Angeles. From the playful and captivating fiddle and drums on the upbeat lead off track “Something May Catch Fire”, to the steel guitar and harmonica-laden “Bedroll Lullaby”, to the heartwarming “Wake With You”, to the mesmerizing solo acoustic ballad “For All We Care”, this album propels Ragan to a whole new level musically. Guest vocalists include Lucero frontman Ben Nichols, Jenny O., Dave Hause, and Chad Price and Jon Snodgrass of Drag The River.
Till Midnight will be released on March 25, 2014 via SideOneDummy Records. The first single “Non Typical” is currently available on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.
