These United States has debuted the first single “Dead & Gone” today from its eponymous new album, out on June 12th with United Interests. The s/t full-length was written and recorded throughout 2011 with 20 outside musical collaborators from coast to coast, serving as a culmination of bandleader Jesse Elliott‘s geographical aspirations. Inspired by the incredible mix of stories and people across the country, Elliott returned to Kentucky and New York over several sessions to longtime band partners J. Tom Hnatow, Justin Craig, and Robby Cosenza to make sense — and sound — of it all. The band will be in attendance at this year’s SXSW, with Elliott participating as a guest speaker on a panel discussing the authenticity of modern day Americana music. These United States have also announced Midwest and East Coast dates with Trampled By Turtles, kicking off the tour with a sold-out Minneapolis performance on April 11th.
These United States is the quartet’s fifth studio album to date and features collaborations with John McCauley of Deer Tick, Michael Nau of Cotton Jones, Matthew Houck of Phosphorescent, Laura Burhenn of The Mynabirds, Ben Sollee, David Moore of Langhorne Slim, Josh Read of Revival,                                                   and the entire Frontier Ruckus band. Recorded with Duane Lundy (Jim James, Ben Sollee, Adam Arcuragi) and Justin Craig, the LP is a rambunctious melting pot of rock-and-roll, psych pop, folk balladry, and outlaw country. It’s a concept album that acts as a panoramic snapshot of numerous American musical styles over the past century, but still looks forward to the weird new world at the completion of the Mayan calendar.
