Listen to new single Salvation now.
The Strumbellas have announced their fourth album, Rattlesnake, set for release on 29 March via Glassnote Records. Last week the band released the video for Salvation, the first single to be taken from the album.
Rattlesnake marks a stylistic turn from their melancholy, introspective releases, to an uplifting album with songs that focus more on optimism. Produced by Tim Pagnotta (Elle King, Walk the Moon), co-produced and engineered by Brian Phillips, the album was recorded on the band’s home turf, at the legendary Bathouse Recording Studio outside of Kingston, Ontario, and at Revolution Recording in Toronto.
The nine-track body of work is the sunny side of the street follow-up to The Strumbellas’ Billboard-charting third album, Hope, which featured the hit single Spirits.
“Well, after the last tour, Izzy had a baby, I got an English Bulldog, Darryl travelled to Bali, Jon built a cottage, Jer drove all the way across Canada in his 85’ Camper Van, Dave grew a mustache and we made an album that we are REALLY proud of,” commented Simon Ward. “Everyone in the band is SO excited to get back on the road to show everyone some new music.”
The release of Rattlesnake will come after a string of European headline shows, including a show at London’s Bush Hall on 25 March, and will be followed by an extensive US headline tour starting on the 1 May.
