Rose Hill Drive fans bemoaning the fact that the band has been mostly dormant for the past few years, rejoice! The indefinite, self-imposed hiatus has come to an end, and your heroes have returned -- with new music. The former power trio (now a quartet, with the addition of bassist Jimmy Stofer) has completed work on a new album,Americana
, which it plans to release locally on its own imprint, Slow and Shirley Records, later this summer.
In honor of the occasion, the Boulder-based outfit is hosting a listening party for Americana this Monday, June 13, at the Sundown Saloon in Boulder; fans can listen to the new platter -- which the band recorded and co-produced at Coupe Studios -- in its entirety beginning at 8:30 p.m. As if that weren't incentive enough to make it out, the group, which is getting ready to join Stone Temple Pilots on tour for a series of dates, will be giving away five pairs of tickets to its show next Friday, June 17, at the Bluebird Theater.
