We love our guitars to be versatile, dependable, and not typecast into any one genre. For that reason, we celebrate the fact that we have an incredibly diverse and talented artist roster who use PRS instruments on stage and in studios all over the world. This week we have four completely unique artists all dropping albums on September 9th, check out the album releases below! --
Jason Aldean - They Don't KnowPre-order Here Check out "Lights Come On" from the album below!
Teaming with longtime producer Michael Knox and the same band on-and-off stage for a full decade, They Don’t Know returns with a crowd-pleasing array of emotions and observations, from sizzling party-starters to hard-earned heartbreak. With the new music, the coveted ACM Triple Crown winner reveals lessons learned and confidence gained over the course of a career that includes more than 14 million album sales. No longer just a newcomer bringing a new energy to country music, he’s truly an established star, one of the standard-bearers of the genre. PRS artist Kurt Allison plays in Aldean's band.
Of Mice & Men - Cold WorldPre-order Here Check out one of the band's singles "Real" off of the album below!
“During the making of Cold World, I relied solely on my Gary Grainger 4 and 5 string basses. They're incredibly versatile, offering a variety of tonal options including my favorite—the ability to run the bass fully passive. The album is composed of songs in either drop C on the 4 string, or drop A on the 5, and the basses handled the lower tunings perfectly. They have such a solid low-end and focused low-mid that allow the bass to sit perfectly in the mix, whether it's a screaming chorus line on a song like The Hunger or a delicate lead further up the neck like the verses in Away. These basses are awesome, and I highly recommend them for studio use!” - Aaron Pauley, Of Mice and Men
This Wild Life - Low TidesPre-order Here Check out "Pull Me Out" off of the album below!
Indie alternative rock duo This Wild Life announce Low Tides their eagerly anticipated new album. Anthony Del Grosso and Kevin Jordan recorded Low Tides with producer/engineer Aaron Marsh of Copeland. “We went into this album much more open-minded than we did on the last one because we've listened to so much new music over the past three years,” says Jordan. The album was mixed and mastered with additional production and engineering by Jason Suwito of Sir Sly. Low Tides follows the release of This Wild Life’s Epitaph debut, Clouded, which charted as the #1 Top New Artist, #1 Top Alternative New Artist, #49 Digital Album, and the #17 Independent Album at Billboard. Since forming in Long Beach, California in 2010, the duo has developed a dedicated audience with over 34 million album streams, 32 million YouTube views, 400k social media followers, and a multitude of shows for their fans worldwide. With all of this it is clear that This Wild Life is primed for the spotlight.
Bumpin Uglies - Keep It TogetherPre-order Here Check out "Stop The Fall" off of the album below!
￼Bumpin Uglies have announced details for Keep It Together, their upcoming third full-length album. Keep It Together, follows on the heels of the band's recent self-released EP Better. Faster. Stronger. "The new record is the culmination of the last 8 years of my life. It’s a collection of stories about touring as an independent band, but told in a way that is applicable to every day life. There are songs about long drives, financial uncertainty, lost friendships, relationships, and panic attacks," says front man/songwriter Brandon Hardesty. "It’s a mixture of ska/punk, reggae/rock, and dub, but with a darkness to it that isn’t usually found in the genre. When I got into this style of music, almost a decade ago, I was looking for an album like this and I wasn’t able to find it. Bumpin Uglies is my first band, so every show and studio session has been a learning experience for me. After a lot of hard work and more than a few mistakes, I’m very happy to have finally made an album that captures the vibe that I’ve been trying to get across for a very long time.” Brandon commented on the guitar he used for the album, “I used my S2 singlecut Semi-Hollow for every song on our new album. I've never owned such a versatile guitar before and I absolutely love how it cuts through a mix.” In addition to front man Brandon Hardesty, bassist Dave Wolf used PRS instruments to record the new album, "The SE Kestrel is a joy to play. The neck just feels right, and it has the versatility to go from clear and punchy to low and dubby."
