Local blues/indie rock heroes and certifiable Nashville success story The Delta Saints have been teasing the release of a new record for a few weeks now. Other than the title, Monte Vista, and some album cover artwork, they haven’t given yet revealed much, but that all changes Feb. 23 friends, because the group are officially releasing new track “California,” and, to celebrate, they’re throwing a very special single release show at The Basement, with help from neo-soul blues/funk outfit Kat Milk Blu in the opening spot. Tickets to the show are currently available for here, but we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky fan! Enter for a chance to win after the jump, and be sure to read more about the lineup below.
THE DELTA SAINTS
For almost a decade now, The Delta Saints have helped the Music City rock scene flourish, and become fixtures of our own playlists in the process. We first took notice around 2013, with the masterful LP Death Letter Jubilee, and have been keeping tabs on them every since. With a heavy blues leaning to their powerful indie rock, and a kickass live show, it’s no wonder that the group have caught on, not just in Nashville, but all over the U.S. With the release of 2015’s Bones, they took they touring international, and can count on their global fanbase continuing to grow when they leave for Europe in March. But, before they head across the pond for a few weeks, you can send The Delta Saints off in style at The Basement, and help them celebrate the release of their latest single “California” ahead of new record Monte Vista. The release date has yet to be announced, but, for now, revisit old favorite “Heavy Hammer” while we wait for new tunes.
KAT MILK BLU
Featured frequently in our weekend show guide, Kat Milk Blu seem to be turning more, and more heads, as we continue to see them showing up on many great bills. Their music is a wonderful mixture of soul, blues, funk, and, of course, rock ’n’ roll. You should given them a listen if you haven’t already, because we think there is some very serious potential with this local group. There’s not much out there on this band, other than great word of mouth, although, according to their Facebook, recorded music is in the works. We look forward to seeing their well-matched opening set, and you should too, but only if you get to The Basement on time, so don’t be late!
