OUT ON MAY 20TH THROUGH ALIVE NATURALSOUND RECORDS!
SPIN PREMIERES LONESOME SHACK’S NEW TRACK “MEDICINE”!
LONESOME SHACK HITS THE ROAD FOR SUMMER TOUR!,
More Primitive finds Seattle’s Lonesome Shack exploring the depths of boogie and country blues. The trio’s sound is raw and immediate with finger-picked guitar lines, soulful crooning and big danceable grooves. Ben Todd’s introspective lyrics take the American blues tradition to a new level, examining personal history, loss of friends and a burning desire to get to the primitive core of life.
The band began in New Mexico’s Gila Wilderness where Ben Todd hunkered down in the shack he built and studied the music of the American folk and blues lineage. In 2008 Todd joined up with drummer Kristian Garrard in Seattle, and in 2011 bassist Luke Bergman became the third member.
Lonesome Shack’s More Primitive will be available on CD, digital formats and limited edition vinyl on May 20th through Alive Naturalsound Records.
