Becky Warren To Release Deluxe Album

On September 1st, Nashville-based alt-country rocker Becky Warren, who is gearing up for her second run in a year with the Indigo Girls, will unleash a deluxe version of her stunning debut album, War Surplus, featuring four additional and previously unreleased tracks.

War Surplus is a tale of two intertwined characters--June, who has given up hope of ever falling in love, and Scott, the self-deprecating and charming military man who changes her mind. “When June and Scott meet, they fall in love, and he deploys to Iraq," Warren explains. "Scott returns from war with PTSD and the story illustrates the pair’s struggle, as they ultimately part ways. It’s not a political album," she adds. "It’s about humanity, about the struggles of these two people."

Warren enlisted Nashville heavyweights including guitarist and pedal-steel player Paul Niehaus (Calexico, Iron & Wine, Justin Townes Earle, Bobby Bare, Jr.), drummer Dillon Napier (Margo Price), and Adam Wakefield (The Voice) to round out the album's sound, which received high praise from NPR's All Things Considered, Noisey's Robert Chistgau, Juli Thanki at The Tennessean, and grabbed a spot on The Bitter Southerner's Best of 2016.

"Becky Warren's album War Surplus is a classic whiskey-soaked, honky-tonk, girl-meets-boy story in 12 songs. Except this story is girl meets boy, boy deploys, boy comes home with PTSD which, soaked in whiskey, tears apart their marriage, which is also something of a classic in the veterans community." - All Things Considered

"[War Surplus] is remarkable. A deadly accurate picture of a story that’s become all too familiar after more than a decade of a never-ending war." - Bitter Southerner
