6 Day Bender

The "mountain rock" quartet squeezes a hometown gig in between their trip to SXSW, a few dates in North Carolina, and a longer tour that takes up the rest of April. And, more importantly, the recording sessions for their next album, tentatively slated for release over the summer under the name 200 Roses. "'200 Chinese Democracies' was too wordy," says banjo-wielding frontman Luke Nutting. Also rejected: 200 Songs of Love, Destruction and Other Synthetic Delusions of the Electric Head.
