SCI has the "Country Road Blues"

Monday, March 25, 2024 – The String Cheese Incident unveiled "County Road Blues" the second bonus track to be released from the band's most recent album "Lend Me A Hand" (2023).

"County Road Blues" follows "Windy Mountain" which was released last month.

"In bluegrass, the guitar players call these 'floaties.' You pick the notes and let the open strings ring out," said SCI's Bill Nershi. "When I bring bluegrass to the band, it usually morphs into other styles and takes on a character all its own."

"Lend Me A Hand" is the band's eighth studio album and reflects on love, loss and resilience. The disc emerged as SCI coped with the sudden death of their close friend Jesse Aratow, a member of their management team for most of the band's history. Brad Cook (Bon Iver, Hiss Golden Messenger, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Waxahatchee) produced the set.
