Acmeville Records has partnered with Nashville rock band Blank Range for the band’s latest record. The album, titled In Unison, will be released on vinyl in April. Acmeville Records will release a limited edition, 300-copy run of the album, available at theacmevillenashville.com, and at select Nashville-based stores including The Groove in East Nashville.
Acmeville Records was founded as the in-house record label for Acme Feed & Seed in order to empower Acme’s mission of the discovery and preservation of Nashville’s music and history. When the Acme team discovered that Blank Range was going on infinite hiatus to pursue solo projects, they sprang into action to ensure that the band’s final album would be memorialized on vinyl in order to preserve this essential chapter in Music City history.
In Unison which was recorded in a home north of Nashville, showcases three Blank Range members taking turns delivering lead vocals throughout the 10 tracks of the album.
Since Blank Range formed in 2013, the avant-garde indie group has been a force to be reckoned with on the Nashville music scene. The band won The Road to Bonnaroo competition in 2014, they went on to open for the likes of rockers Alice in Chains, Spoon, and Drive-By Truckers. In 2018 they toured with Margo Price and Tyler Childers.
Blank Range has also been an integral part of the Acme Radio Live family, appearing on Acme Radio Live since 2017.
Before the Blank Range members transition into individual projects, they’ll be performing the last three shows on the books this year as a group in conjunction with Acme Radio Live and Acme Feed & Seed. On April 13, Blank Range will perform at Acme Radio Live’s Record Store Day at The Groove, followed by three encore performances throughout the summer which will take place on the Acme Feed & Seed stage (dates to come).
“While we’re coming to the end of one chapter in the Music City, we’re also welcoming the next chapter of the individual artists in Blank Range and continuing to preserve their legacy,” said Carl Gatti, Director of Entertainment and Radio at Acme Feed & Seed.
“Acme has provided a platform for musicians, and especially Blank Range, to get their craft out into the world for years,” said the band’s manager, Hampton Howerton. “The first vinyl pressing on Acmeville Records is a natural extension of their mission and it’s a testament to the songs the band wrote and recorded that the folks at Acme felt the desire to preserve In Unison on wax.”
