Steep Canyon Rangers Plan New Album For October

The Steep Canyon Rangers are set to release a new album, Arm In Arm, Oct. 16 on Yep Roc Records. A new track, “Every River,” is available digitally now.

Recorded over several days at Southern Ground Studios in Nashville (which marked the first time the band recorded outside of their homebase in North Carolina) the album was produced by the Rangers with Brandon Bell. Arm In Arm follows two 2019 releases that both debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Bluegrass chart: North Carolina Songbook, an eight-song live album recorded at Merlefest featuring reinterpretations of songs from cross-generational North Carolina icons; and Be Still Moses, an 11-song collaboration between the band and the Asheville Symphony, which featured a collaboration with Boyz II Men and the Asheville Symphony on the title track. 

The band has confirmed three free drive-in concerts in North Carolina for the Summer. From their cars, fans will watch Steep Canyon Rangers perform from a state-of-the-art mobile stage truck equipped with a 16-foot LED screen with audio transmitted via radio frequency directly to cars. WNCW will live stream the show on Aug. 28.

In light of their May 8 benefit concert cancellation sponsored by Wicked Weed Brewing, the brewer will now contribute $10 per album (up to 2,000 albums) sold via the Yep Roc store to Haywood Street’s Downtown Welcome Table, an Asheville, NC-based organization that provides a fine dining experience to those living on the streets.

Steep Canyon Rangers Drive-In Tour Dates:
Aug. 27 – Brevard Music Center – Brevard, NC
Aug. 28  – The Riveter – Asheville, NC
Aug. 29 – Old Avondale Mill Site – Burnsville, NC
