Tinhorn Prayer has finished work on its brand-new album, Grapple the Rails. We've got a sneak peek of the cover art, designed by Ryan Besch, best known for his merch design work for acts like the Black Keys, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Flatfoot 56, as well as a look at a track from the forthcoming album. Slated for release this fall on Paper + Plastik Records, the imprint founded by Less Than Jake drummer and Fueled by Ramen co-founder, Vinnie Fiorello, Grapple the Rails follows a split seven-inch on P+P with Rob Huddleston, and a pair of releases by fellow locals the Gamits and Jon Snodgrass. Page down to get a gander at the cover and give a listen to "Call a Priest."
