The Cadillac Three are offering up some new music with a throwback vibe for their fans this Friday (Oct. 23) with the release of Tabasco & Sweet Tea on Big Machine Records.

Tabasco & Sweet Tea opens a time capsule of their musical history together and explores hybrid sounds throughout its 11 modern-meets-nostalgia tracks. TC3 will launch this new project at $3.99 for the first week to make it more accessible during a time when many are not spending as much on music, but need it now more than ever.

“As we finished the last record, we knew we were only tapping the surface with songs like ‘The Jam’ for where we could go next musically and found ourselves inspired to dive into these sounds that we had never explored before as a band,” explains drummer Neil Mason. “We’ve always had a lot of influences, but ultimately found ourselves thinking about what we were listening to in high school — The Meters, Stevie Wonder, Medeski Martin & Wood and John Scofield.”

Lead singer and guitarist Jaren Johnston continues, “This album is a science project … constantly moving in different directions but keeping one cohesive feel throughout. We kind of have this innate thing going after all these years so it’s cool to kind of stretch into some new musical spaces with elements of a DJ set that flows from track to track, but mixed with 80’s Funk vibes and jam-band flow over hardcore country lyrics.”

Fans have still shown up to support the band this year every uncertain step of the way, purchasing exclusive “crew” merchandise that helped TC3’s road family with the loss of shows, donating to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee as a part of their 100,000 meals in 100 Days initiative, and highlighting local venues and other artists as Country Fuzz Presents takes up a livestream residence at The Basement and Exit/In.

On Oct. 27, TC3 will debut songs from the new album with a livestream for audiences in North America at 7 p.m. CT. on Country Fuzz Presents.
