Hard Working Americans Album + Tour

Article Contributed by Kymm Britton | Published on Thursday, June 22, 2017

Throughout music history, the breakthrough albums for several legendary artists were live recordings – At Fillmore East by The Allman Brothers Band, Frampton Comes Alive by Peter Frampton, and Alive by KISS. Now four decades later, history seems poised to repeat itself with the release of We’re All In This Together, the powerful, new live album by Hard Working Americans.

Recorded by monitor engineer Colin Cargile during the band’s 2016 Rest In Chaos tour, the album was produced by Dave Schools and mixed by the legendary John Keane, who also mixed the band’s first record. We’re All In This Together features 13 tracks, with most selected from an unforgettable show at Iron City in Birmingham, Alabama.

Listen to HWA’s rendition of Chuck Berry’s “School Day” (Ring! Ring! Goes the Bell) from the forthcoming album HERE:

Dubbed a “jam band super hero group” by some journalists, because of it’s high-profile lineup, the rock sextet features bassist Dave Schools and drummer Duane Trucks of Widespread Panic, guitarist Neal Casal of Chris Robinson Brotherhood, keyboardist Chad Staehly of Great American Taxi, Tulsa guitarist Jesse Aycock, and celebrated singer-songwriter Todd Snider on lead vocals.

“For the kind of band we are, I think this is a definite statement for us,” Snider says of  We’re All In This Together. “It captures a collective spirit, a collective muse being shared by a thousand-plus people.”  Duane Trucks adds, “We have the power of the songs in a live setting and have a good picture of the exploratory nature of the band. That’s what you hope for.”

We’re All In This Together will be released August 4, 2017 on Melvin/Thirty Tigers.
