These Wild Plains Record Release
By the end of 2016, the members of These Wild Plains were exhausted. After three years of navigating the American highway system, making pit stops at every truck stop, motel with a number in the name, festival (notably Stagecoach and Boston Calling), and dive bar offering two drink tickets per person, the band found themselves at a crossroads.  Members came and left, relationships changed, priorities were examined, and much alcohol was consumed.  Fortunately, all of the above is notorious for inspiring songwriters to do their job. Instead of succumbing to exhaustion, the band went to work. The end result is the latest addition to the These Wild Plains canon, Thrilled to Be Here.

On Thrilled to Be Here, the boys trade stories of love, death, and the vices they lean on between points A and B.   Local watering holes and bad habits that you cant seem to escape are paid a visit (Cararros Blues and Mustve Rained All Night respectively) while the legendary duo of love and uncertainty drop in for a beer on Stick Around. Sonically speaking, there is no particular zip code that this record hails from.  Its not quite country, though the fingerprints of that great tradition are all over songs like The Quitter and Cazador.  Calling it rock and roll could be considered lazy, though theres no other way to describe It Is What It Is and Voices.  Both classifications could serve as a last ditch home for songs like Happy Birthday and All You Need, similar to the way the first $49 motel you see off the highway serves as an acceptable place to rest after a fourteen hour drive on I-40 (see El Reno for details).  

Familiar might actually be the best way to describe the overall sound of Thrilled To Be Here,  but not familiar in the sense that this record is a facsimile of something prior.  A collection of snapshots and notes from places you may have been before. Consider it a postcard from somewhere along the highway, or in the case of These Wild Plains, a postcard from home.

Thrilled To Be Here is out internationally on September, 6th 2019.
