Midland will "Let It Roll"
Wednesday, June 5, 2019
– Midland will "Let It Roll" in late August because that's when the trio's sophomore album hits the streets.
"We are excited to announce our new album 'Let it Roll' will be released on August 23rd. This is us and our band - the songs are deeply personal and from the heart. We look forward to sharing it with y'all," the group said in a Facebook post.
Midland covers a neo-traditional sound and dressed in old school country outfits.
This is the group's third release after puyting out a self-titled EP in 2016 and a full length, "On the Rocks," in 2017. The group's biggest hit was its single "Drinkin' Problem." "Make a Little" and "Burn Out" also charted as singles, going top 15 and top 5 respectively.
The trio consists of Mark Wystrach, Cameron Duddy and Jess Carson and formed in Dripping Springs, Texas.
