As any regular reader here knows, there are certain bands I champion on ninebullets.net and long before I knew the guys in Truckstop Coffee personally they were one of them….and they still are.
Admittedly, I have not heard the whole album yet (it’s currently playing) but from what I’ve heard/seen of the new album at their live shows they’ve started to move away from the Lucero-esqe country sound of their previous album and towards a more twang tinged straight forward rock sound (ala say: Two Cow Garage).
Anyhow, they officially released their new album, For Dear Life, today. In an effort to get the album heard by as many folks as possible they’re offering an .mp3 download of the album on a pay what you want platform. Personally, I paid 10 for it and so far, it’s worth it.
Check it out. Buy it. Tell me what you think of it.
In celebration of the album release Truckstop Coffee will be embarking on a small tour. Here are the dates:
EDIT: I forgot to mention for you Tampa/St. Pete folks. Truckstop will also be bringing the rock show to New World on Sept. 19th.
