New Country Rehab drop Lost Highway EP // Hitting Winnipeg tonight /

March 20, 2014

New Country Rehab are in the air flying ready to begin the prairie leg of their North American tour in Winnipeg, Manitoba this evening. To celebrate the tour, we’ve released Lost Highway, a free EP available for download now via¬† Bandcamp.

“Lost Highway” captures that live stage energy while the title track has been described as “snarling blues” that “could comfortably find itself on a Black Keys album” by Classic Rock Country in the UK.

The three song EP also includes two classic covers, “Effigy” by John Fogerty and”Alone and Forsaken” by Hank Williams. “Effigy” was recorded at Little Bullhorn (Kathleen Edwards, Howe Gelb, Gentleman Reg) in Ottawa, with ‘master-shredder’ guitarist Tristan Clark.

“Alone & Forsaken” and the title track were both put to tape during the recording of our acclaimed 2013 album, Ghost Of Your Charms.

New County North American tour includes nine dates across the Canadian Prairies with stops in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.
