Nashville band, The Delta Saints, who released their album Bones last August with Loud & Proud Records, just released a special edition version of it digitally on July 15, 2016. The Bones special edition includes six bonus tracks – three b-sides and three live versions of album tracks, that were recorded during the filming of live performance music videos at Downtown Presbyterian Church in Nashville. Live For Live Music is premiering the video for “Dust” today ahead of their summer tour which kicks off in Raleigh, NC on August 17. Watch it HERE.
Bones was produced, engineered and mixed by Third Man Records alum, Eddie Spear who has assisted on projects with Jack White, Arctic Monkeys and Neil Young to name a few.
Last month Relix Magazine premiered the live video for “Berlin” – watch it HERE.
The Delta Saints have been garnering praise (see below) for a sound that is all their own but with hints of My Morning Jacket, The Black Keys and The White Stripes thrown in for good measure. They even received an stellar endorsement from the legendary Chrissie Hynde who was a guest on Bravo’s “Watch What Happen Live” last year telling a caller that she saw The Delta Saints play Akron, OH, that they are a “great band” and suggested that people buy Bones – watch HERE.
The Delta Saints have spent the last nine years playing festivals and sold out headline shows in the U.S. and across Europe averaging about 200 shows per year, organically growing their audience. They have performed at several festivals in the U.S. including Summer Camp, Harvest, The Ride, Summerfest, Wakarusa and The Simple Man Cruise. They have also been selling out countless venues in across Europe, including Spain, Sweden, France, Switzerland and Germany, as well performing at several festivals in Holland (Moulin Blues, Ribs and Blues), Belgium (Gevarenwinkel) and Germany (Grolsch Blues Fest).
What The Press Has Been Saying…
“…a killer rock band…If you dig ethereal rock in the vein of My Morning Jacket or gritty roots like The White Stripes, check these guys out.” – Blue Ridge Outdoors
“…these Nashville-bred boys offer an eclectic sound that is not only rocking, but also refreshing. As big bass meets deep blues, gritty lyrics and groovy electronics, The Delta Saints will simply show you a helluva good time.” – Maxim Magazine
“The Delta Saints have developed a signature sound of roots-blues efforts and huge rhythms…Bones is ten tracks of fast-paced, genre-bending experimentation…roots-y vocals, gritty lyrics, and expansive, rollicking instrumentation.” – Elmore Magazine
“…chock full of gritty blues riffs, bold choruses and sweet slide guitar work.” – Nashville Scene
“Bones is a full-throttle rock ’n’ roll affair, with crashing drums, arena-sized vocals, and a big, layered sound full of texture and nuance. Imagine My Morning Jacket joining forces with Dead Weather—or, in the tamer moments, the Black Keys—and you’re on the right track.” – Good Times
“… features a cavalcade of sexy stompers, howling blues and all the gritty rock you can handle…Lead singer Ben Ringel carries the songs with his charisma, whether he’s rasping out low notes or sending out a call to the heavens…you will be too tightly in the grip of this band’s musical sway to break free, not that you’ll want to. Bones is a sweaty good time.” – Chico News & Review
“…soulful slow-burner, ‘Butte La Rose,’ which sounds like the Black Crowes with an arid Texas Blues vibe. Keyboards reverberate across a spare, echoing blues riff that could serve as the backdrop for a Western gunfight, before spinning into something more like Pink Floyd.” – Colorado Springs Independent
“… one hell of a rock ‘n’ roll album. Bones is filled to the brim with bluesy stompers, soulful howls and scratchy whispers, on this dynamic album that takes on soul, Americana, gospel and R&B…there’s no resisting the magnetic pull of this record. Singer Ben Ringel is a spellbinding force of nature…” – C-Ville
“…Delta Saints build on the familiar aesthetics of blues, folk, and country to create a lush, abundant sound all their own…walking the line between shit-kicking roots rock and electronic exploration…Bones shows a band comfortable in its own shoes and confident in its ability to create innovative, roots-inspired rock ‘n’ roll.” – popMATTERS (8/10 star album review)
