Following a successful Kickstarter campaign to build a recording studio, Mountain Standard Time is set to put out their second studio release, Highway Lines, on Tuesday, October 7th. Behind a summer in the newly-built MST Studios, the band seamlessly crafted a collection of MST fan-favorites and entirely new material.
For the first time ever, the band members of Mountain Standard Time took the full role in the producer and engineer seats, as they constructed each track entirely themselves. From set-up in the studio, to recording, to engineering and mixing, the band has prepared a new album that is truly personal and organic.
“We wanted to create a group of songs that would resonate well with a wide audience and also leave space for interpretation in live performance,” says Nick Dunbar (MST mandolin, vocals). “These are some of the tunes we hope people will be singing with us and sharing with family and friends - the first set of many to come.”
After a summer that included Summer Camp Music Festival, Wakarusa Music Festival, Leftover Salmon’s Rock & Ride Rendezvous and a Cervantes’ Other Side July residency in Denver, Mountain Standard Time hits the road this fall in anticipation of the band’s new album.
Fall tour takes MST’s Rocky Mountain FreeGrass through Southwest Colorado and the front range of Colorado, including The Aggie Theatre in Fort Collins with Fruition, the band’s first appearance at Denver’s The 1up Colfax, and the return to The Fox Theatre in Boulder. The band travels to the Midwest through Iowa, Chicago, Michigan and Minnesota’s Harmony Park - Oaktoberfest.
Finally, tour rolls to the West Coast as MST covers Northern and Southern California through Halloween weekend, including Railroad Earth’s Hangtown Halloween Ball and stops in San Francisco and Los Angeles, among others. Plus Mountain Standard Time will jump to Texas for Art Outside Festival.
