TRUTH & SALVAGE CO. will release their debut studio album on May 25 through Silver Arrow/Megaforce Records. Produced by Chris Robinson, the self-titled 12 song collection is centered on the band's soaring four-part harmonies and Americana rock ethos. TRUTH & SALVAGE CO. developed much of the material while opening for The Black Crowes over the course of 2009. With four lead singer/songwriters each contributing to the effort, the tracks range from the clever lyrical style of "Old Piano," the epic bohemian rocker "Jump The Ship," to the band's staple set closer "Pure Mountain Angel."
The six musicians of TRUTH & SALVAGE CO. (vocalist/guitarist Scott Kinnebrew, vocalist/guitarist Tim Jones, vocalist/drummer Bill "Smitty" Smith, vocalist/keyboardist Walker Young, bassist Joe Edel and keyboardist Adam Grace) hail from diverse Southern and Midwestern backgrounds. Prior to their conception, the veteran members had been involved in well-regarded regional bands like Scrappy Hamilton and Old Pike, while performing with acts such as The Moldy Peaches, Ben Folds Five, Jack Johnson, and The Squirrel Nut Zippers, as well as members of My Morning Jacket and Rogue Wave.
All six musicians migrated to Los Angeles, meeting at Hollywood's famous Hotel Café where singer Tim Jones served as the venue's talent booker. First performing together during casual late-night jam sessions, they quickly discovered their chemistry was undeniable. It was on that very stage that TRUTH & SALVAGE CO. was born.
TRUTH & SALVAGE CO. return to Hotel Cafe every Friday night for a four week residency that runs through March 12. In April they'll join The Avett Brothers. Plans for an extended tour around the album's release will be announced shortly.
