Josh Abbott Band slates new disc

Wednesday, June 28, 2017 – Josh Abbott Band will release its new album, "Until My Voice Goes Out" on Aug. 18.

Produced by Dwight Baker, Abbott indicates the album from the Texas-based band has an upbeat message. "This album is about appreciating the moment and your family and your friends, and living life the right way," Abbott said. "It's really all about finding clarity and focusing on what's important."

As the band was nearing the finish on recording the disc, Abbott's father suffered a stroke, Abbott split his time between the studio and the hospital bedside, finishing all the lead vocals shortly before his dad passed away. Two months later, Abbott welcomed his first child into the world.

The album uses strings and a horn section for the first time. Arranger Rob Mathes, who worked work with Tony Bennett, Sting and Bruce Springsteen, handled the strings.

The band's last album, "'Front Row Seat," gained some airplay with the single "Wasn't That Drunk" with Carly Pearce.

Josh Abbott Band is Josh Abbott (vocals, guitar), Preston Wait (fiddle, electric guitar), Edward Villanueva (drums), James Hertless (bass), Caleb Keeter (electric guitar), Austin Davis (banjo), David Fralin (Keyboard).

CD reviews for Josh Abbott Band

CD review - Christmas Was The Josh Abbott Band's five-song EP starts out slightly silly, but then gets really serious from the middle to the end. It also surprisingly covers a lot of subject matter ground in a short time span. It opens with "Santa Better Knock," which leans a little to the Eartha Kitt, sexy side of Christmas songs.

CD review - The Highway Kind The Texas-based Josh Abbott Band's "The Highway Kind" effectively straddles the edginess of Texas alternative country with slick Nashville production values.

Abbott kicks it off with the Erik Dylan, Troy Cartwright and Jon Randall tune about the constraint of city living ("Well, the downtown streets never got me where I was going") as compared to the preferred life on the ...
CD review - Catching Fire Releasing five albums and two EPs since 2008, the normally prolific Josh Abbott Band returns more to its roots after exploring new, more Nashville-type sound over the last two albums. This self-released effort shows maturity and confidence by remembering who they are and expanding their base at the same time. With the title cut, "Catching Fire," co-written by Abbott, serving as a bridge between their past musical exploration and their rootsy Texas sound, it is his distinctive voice ...
