Equally inspired by jazz-fusion exploration from the likes of Steely Dan, Atlanta Rhythm Section, and Yes, and the guitar-driven prowess of Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Grateful Dead, The Runaway Grooms’ new album, This Road, dives in and out of grooves and moods, turning on a dime, but always focusing on what the band sees as the most important aspect; the song. Oh, and keeping the crowd on their dancing feet. Released today, This Road finds the Grooms—guitarist and vocalist Adam Tobin, keyboardist Cody Scott, bassist and vocalist Zach Gillam, drummer Justin Bisset, and guitarist and vocalist Zac Cialek—not only telling stories and gleaning wisdom from life, love, and struggle, but also capturing an array of emotions and moods drawn from living on the road in a hard-touring band. All of these sounds and stories were captured at Paloma Sound Studios in Memphis, Tennessee, with former Ardent Studio engineer Jeremy Horn.
Fans can now purchase or stream This Road in its entirety right here and don’t forget to check out the official music video for “Jenny” at this link.
In addition to tonight’s album release show in Avon, The Runaway Grooms are hitting some of Colorado’s favorite mountain towns this February and supporting String Cheese Incident’s Kyle Hollingsworth and Umphrey’s McGee’s Joel Cummins at Denver’s Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom.
