This train just keeps on rolling! Back in June, A-List producer Ken Coomer heard our music through a friend and “knew I wanted to make a record with this band”. When he contacted us in June interested in producing our next studio album, it was a sign we were on the right track! Coomer is a three-time Grammy nominated drummer, producer and original founding member of Wilco. As a producer, Ken has worked with artists from all over the world, and has received multiple gold and platinum records and number ones for his work. Next week Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal will be heading down to Nashville mid-tour to record our third studio album ‘Running from Love’ with Coomer at the legendary Nashville studio Sound Emporium. ‘Running from Love’ will be released in spring of 2016 on Silver Street Records, followed by a barn-storming national tour. For a preview of what to expect from this album; check out this performance of the title track, ‘Running from Love’, recorded this Summer live at Vega in Lincoln, NE.
For our second major bit of news in as many days, we’re excited to announce we are releasing ‘Cooked Raw’, a limited edition LP, on Silver Street Records, November 6th, 2015. Pre-order now!
This isn’t your ordinary album, folks. ‘Cooked Raw’ was recorded live in one take, direct to disc, at the world famous all analog studio Welcome to 1979 in Nashville, TN in June. Direct to disc means no overdubbing, no comping, no editing, no auto-tuning, no production tricks, no nothing. What we laid down live was cut to the lacquer master in real time, and once the the lathe started cutting, there was no stopping until the side was done.
So what you will hear on this 180 gram vinyl record, in pristine hi-fidelity analog audio, is Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal getting down and dirty and burning up two live, 18 minute, three song sets, including “Living By The Minute”, “Misfit Children”, and “Every Day and Every Night” on side one, and “Illusion”, “Make Time For Love”, and “Blood and Bone” on side two.
The official release date is November 6th, 2015. We will be playing the album in it’s entirety at a private release show at Welcome To 1979 in Nashville on November 6th, before returning to Nebraska for a hometown release show, date and venue TBA.
The album is now available for pre-order on Silver Street Record’s website and includes an insert sheet with lyrics and a download card. Quantities are limited, so we encourage anyone who wants to get their hands on this album to pre-order it now! All pre-orders will ship on November 6th; or can be picked up in person at Silver Street Records in Ashland, Nebraska, on or after November 6th.
Recording this album was an intense experience, and we hope you love listening to this album as much as we loved making it! Pre-order now!
