Moreland & Arbuckle go traditional

Moreland & Arbuckle will return to a more traditional sound for their seventh album, due early next year.

The follow-up to 2013’s 7 Cities will be their first with Alligator Records. It’s produced by Matt Bayles, who’s previously worked with Mastodon and The Sword.

Guitarist Aaron Moreland says: “The new album is consciously more traditional than our last two – but still has the signature grit and power that we’ve crafted the past 13 years. We achieved that beautifully.”

He continues: “We’re very happy to work with the Alligator team. One of our biggest influences ever, Hound Dog Taylor, was the very first Alligator artist. One of the reasons we have no bass player was listening to Hound Dog’s music as we were coming up.”

The band will return to the UK and Europe next year in support of the release. Full details will be revealed in due course.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
