Kilborn Alley Blues Band (KABB) will release their new album Four via Blue Bella Records on Nov. 22 and have released album artwork as well as the complete tracklisting for the upcoming set.
Four follows their critically acclaimed Better Off Now
and features 11 original songs produced and mixed by Nick Moss. The
band recorded the set as a four-piece with frontman Andrew Duncanson
sharing guitar duties with Josh Stimmel and Chris Breen and Ed O’Hara
again handling bass and drums respectively.
I don’t want to tease my review too much but I’ve heard the entire
album so I'll share a few of the details to whet your appetite. The
album was recorded as a quartet as I mentioned earlier but a few guest
musicians contribute to a handful of tracks: Gerry Hundt blows some
serious harp for three cuts, Vince Salerno provides a little greasy sax
on a pair of songs, and Travis Reed (Nick Moss & The Flip Tops)
delivers big time, adding organ on several tunes.
Four includes the longest track to grace a KABB studio
record with album closer “Going Hard” eclipsing 10 minutes. There is
once again an instrumental track, “Argyles And A Do-Rag”; the title
being an homage to guitarist Stimmel.
So, yes, tour dates in support of the upcoming record are underway and you should check out their web site for tour dates!
