Delta Rae sign to Warner Bros. Records and releasing debut album in June

Music News | Apr 19th, 2012

Delta Rae are releasing their debut album on June 19th via Warner Bros Records. I saw the band open for Carbon Leaf and they are an interesting group. I particularly liked when they played their song “Bottom of the River.” Anytime a band brings out big heavy chains on stage, you know it’s going to be cool! Delta Rae will be playing Mountain Jam on June 2nd and in Woodbridge NJ in August. The Press release and a video of “Bottom of the River” is below:

Warner Bros. Records is proud to announce the signing of Durham, North Carolina’s Delta Rae, whose debut album, Carry The Fire, is set for a June 19th release.

Delta Rae are one of the first signings in quite a while by the legendary Seymour Stein himself, who is renowned for having a keen eye for new talent and had a hand in the careers of such iconic artists as the Ramones, Talking Heads, the Pretenders, Madonna, and The Smiths. Stein called the band “an important addition to our overall roster. Their music, all original, is a mix of blues, country and gospel with a strong rock and roll influence. I hate labels, but if forced I would have to call their music ‘Original Americana,’ not unlike what the English are sending over via Mumford & Sons and others. I’m very proud to welcome Delta Rae to Sire. I know you will love Delta Rae and their music as much as I do.”

Check out the video for their song “Bottom of the River”
