The String Cheese Incident will release Believe, their seventh studio album, on April 14 via SCI Fidelity Recordings. The album is the first to come out of the band's recently-opened Sound Lab Studio and was produced by Talking Heads keyboardist Jerry Harrison.
SCI has teamed up with PledgeMusic to offer fans access to exclusive bonus content, limited edition items and VIP experiences available only to “pledgers” who pre-order the record. A single $10 pre-order gets you an instant download of six tracks off the album, an unreleased, non-circulated soundboard from 10/30/99 in Hamilton, NY, the Sedona Sessions demo tapes, an acoustic VIP set from NYE 2016 and an opportunity to win two tickets and a chance to meet the band! That's over five hours of music with the Pledge pre-order as well as a slew of video updates from the band. Pre-order Believe at PledgeMusic HERE.
“My One And Only”, penned by keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth, is slated to hit radio on April 3rd. The lead track from the album is a long-distance letter to a loved one and features Bonnie Paine of Elephant Revival on vocals. Both "My One And Only" and sing-along single, "Sweet Spot" are available for sharing below.
In addition to the enthusiasm that the members of SCI share surrounding the recording process and hitting the road, there is also a strong collective desire to explore other forms of artistic, intellectual and creative expression, which finds the guys constantly engaged in a variety of outside but closely tied projects.
In addition to releasing studio albums via their own label, SCI Fidelity, SCI also curates and produces annual festivals like Electric Forest (featuring My Morning Jacket, Thievery Corporation, Odesza, Bassnectar and more) in the Summer and Hulaween in the Fall, interspersed by assorted Incident collaborations with the likes of Lauryn Hill, the Doobie Brothers, Big Gigantic and the Zac Brown Band.
Hollingsworth is a longtime homebrewer and loves to blend his passions of brewing and music. Over the past decade, Kyle has brewed with more than 25 breweries across the country, releasing three nationally distributed collaborative beers and hosting 15 of his own beer festivals. Last year, he hosted the first-ever major craft beer cruise from Miami to the Caribbean and every year Kyle looks forward to joining an all-star panel of brewers and musicians at Great American Beer Festival in Denver, one of the most prominent beer events in the U.S.
We are excited to announce that the 8th annual Kyle’s Brew Fest will live as the pre-compression party for the band’s Red Rocks dates this Summer, benefiting SCI's longtime charitable partner Conscious Alliance, and taking place on July 20th in Denver, CO.
The April Spring Cheese 2017 shows start next week with festivals running through the summer along with a three night stand at Red Rocks. A full list of tour dates can be found below.
