Listen to “Better in the Morning” here
December 6, 2018 - With a driving, insistent beat, earworming riffs and hypnotic background vocals, “Better in the Morning” is another powerful salvo from Quaker City Night Hawks new album QCNH. The album’s second single will be released tomorrow, and provides an example of how formidable the Texas psychedelic heavy boogie rockers are. QCNH will be released March 1, 2019 on Lightning Rod Records, and the band has announced the first round of dates in support of the album. The current run begins February 1, 2019 in Albuquerque, NM, and includes dates supporting Blackberry Smoke and Shooter Jennings, in addition to headlining shows.
On QCNH, the Ft Worth, TX band dig deeper into their influences, ramping up the sonic diversity with 10 new songs rooted in vintage R&B grooves, Stax-worthy funk, and guitar-fueled psychedelia.
It’s a boldly heterogeneous album that still functions as a cohesive whole, produced by former White Denim member Austin Jenkins and Josh Block of Niles City Sound and performed by a group of road warriors who smartly balance their strengths — Sam Anderson and David Matsler's hook-driven songwriting; drummer Aaron Haynes raw rhythm; the band's blend of Tex-Mex desert rock and street-smart, big-city bombast — with their desire to explore and experiment.
“Suit in the Back,” the first single from QCNH, was released to critical praise. Rolling Stone says “rattling along on a thick, thumping groove, ‘Suit in the Back’ walks a swaggering walk,” while Central Track points out that “those Quaker City Night Hawks boys are pretty big these days, huh? Maybe even bigger than you even realize, actually.”
Current tour dates are below, more dates will be announced soon.
