with (After Bob Weir at Saenger Theatre) Aaron Wilkinson (acoustic guitar/mandolin/vocals), Chris Mul (electric guitar/vocals), Sam Price (bass/vocals) and Garland Paul (drums/vocals) were already on nodding terms from their hometown circuit, but when the four men joined forces for a weekly residency at San Franciscos Boom Boom Room, the chemistry was undeniable. By 2009, the lineup had released award-winning debut Wishing Well, enlisted Hammond B-3 wizard Trevor Brooks and placed one foot onto the podium of New Orleans greats. Ten years and a thousand gigs down the line, that same battle-hardened lineup took just four days to track Demolition Day at The Parlor Recording Studio in New Orleans with famed producer Luther Dickinson (also leader of the North Mississippi Allstars and ex-Black Crowes guitarist). We had a very tight window to record, Wilkinson recalls, so we had to minimalise in places and really pack a lot of emotion into each take. Luther calls it the freedom of limitation and it really served us well on this album. Released in 2016 on Ruf Records, Demolition Day is the bands fourth full-length studio release and marks a milestone in their career.
