Truth & Salvage Co. will release their debut studio album on May 25th through Silver Arrow/Megaforce Records. Produced by The Black Crowe's Chris Robinson, the self-titled 12 song collection is centered on the band's four-part harmonies and Americana ethos. Truth & Salvage Co. developed much of the material while opening for The Black Crowes over the the course of 2009. The tracks range from the clever lyrical style of Old Piano to the band's riveting set closer Pure Mountain Angel.
The six musicians of Truth & Salvage Co. hail from diverse Southern and Mid-Western backgrounds. The veteran members had been involved in well-regarded regional bands like Scrappy Hamilton and Old Pike, while performing with acts such as Ben Folds Five, Jack Johnson and The Squirrel Nut Zippers, as well as My Morning Jacket and Rogue Wave.
All six musicians migrated to Los Angeles meeting at Hollywood's famous Hotel Cafe where singer Tim Jones served as the venue's talent booker. First performing together during casual late-night jam sessions, they quickly discovered their chemistry was undeniable.
They hit the road with The Avett Brothers in April and will appear at several summer festivals, including Bonnaroo, Beale Street Music Festival, Wakarusa and High Sierra Music Festival.
