Colorado band Tenth Mountain Division is pushing the sound found in the mountains in bold new directions with their high-energy and exploratory take on Americana, draws influences from classic Southern rock, the progressive bluegrass that was born in their backyard, and the adventurous spirit of 60s psychedelic.
Tenth Mountain Division has created their own music and comedy webisode series, TMDtv, and is excited to release it to the world! Starting Thursday, October 1 it will air at 6pm MT/ 8pm ET every Thursday in October. The first episode airs free to all on Tenth Mountain Division's Facebook/IG/Youtube with an option to donate what you please. From there on the entire 5 episode season is available for purchase at tmdtunes.com. They jest, “This is our Mona Lisa…”
"When quarantine hit we were left unsure of how to reach our fans AND where we'd be getting our next paycheck…” TMD says, “We decided to do something about it and it has been one of the most challenging and rewarding projects we've taken on. We have a lot of people to thank but most importantly to our fearless leader/producer/editor/director/film director Samuel Ryan Densford of Homefield Productions and to our sound engineer Cory Ballentine. Get ready to laugh!”
The band recently released an animated video for their new single, “9 to 5,” which is the first song from their upcoming third album to hit the airwaves. “9 to 5” was penned by the band’s bassist Andrew Cooney who says, “This song is about trusting yourself to take the path you feel is right. The first verse lays out what could be, and the second draws the final straw that leads to the solution in the chorus, ‘going home another way.’ It’s a somber, yet uplifting song that makes you ask if you are really following your heart.”
The new album will be released in early 2021 and was produced by Tim Carbone (Railroad Earth) at Silo Sound Studio in Denver (recently dubbed the ‘Abbey Road of Denver’ [Westword]).
