Currently on the road in support of their recently released new album, Coming Down The Mountain, Mipso are coming to Avon and Keystone, CO as part of their Summer 2017 Album Release tour. On April 7th, 2017, acclaimed Chapel Hill quartet Mipso released their highly anticipated new album, Coming Down The Mountain, to rave reviews. It quickly shot up the Billboard album charts and debuted in the Top 5 of the Bluegrass Album Charts. Of the record, No Depression states, “More songs like this and Mipso will corner the market in a new genre. Something like progressive-Americana or Roots-Progressive. What a way to pump life into a once hallowed music form – progressive rock.” Available now on all digital service providers, Coming Down The Mountain can also be purchased on CD or Vinyl at www.mipsomusic.com.

Mipso recently released the first single track from their new album Coming Down The Mountain. At radio, the title track “Coming Down the Mountain” continues to run up the Americana Radio Chart, sitting this week at #49. On radio’s Roots Music Report, Coming Down The Mountain shot up to # 3 on the Top 50 Country Album Chart and held the #1 on their Top 50 Americana Country Album Chart for two+ weeks. On the March Folk DJ chart, Mipso cracked the top ten on all three top 100 charts: #8 Album Chart, #9 song chart for "Coming Down The Mountain" and #9 Artist Chart.

Coming Down The Mountain is the band’s fourth album release, and follows up their critically lauded Old Time Reverie (2015).  After a year and a half of intense touring following their 2015 release, Mipso returned to their home state to write and record. Huddling in a friend’s barn on land usually used for growing garlic and training dogs, they collected their ideas, shared influences, and discussed thoughts on what would eventually become Coming Down The Mountain.

The album’s ten songs – all originals - finds Mipso exploring the ideas of our changing relationship to the idea of home, and about being pushed or pulled by forces bigger than us.  Produced by Brad Cook (Megafaun), and adding pedal steel, drums, banjo, and keyboards to the mix, the music on Coming Down The Mountain is full of wistful beauty, hopeful undercurrents, and panoramic soundscapes that impart intimacy.
