“Equal Parts Heartland Rock And Southern Swagger” With “A Shimmering, Psychedelic Gauze” (American Songwriter), Hear New Quaker City Night Hawks Song “Colorado” – New Album Out March 1

Quaker City Night Hawks will release their new album QCNH on March 1st via Lightning Rod Records, and American Songwriter has a taste of new song “Colorado.” Listen here.

Of the song, American Songwriter says:

“’Colorado’ is a rambling, melodic track built on equal parts heartland rock and Southern swagger. A meandering guitar solo and lushly layered arrangement give the track a shimmering, psychedelic gauze that would perfectly soundtrack a long sunny drive through the desert.”

Rolling Stone recently praised the thunderous QCNH track “Hunter’s Moon,” saying:

“The Fort Worth ensemble pairs its full-tilt Texas boogie with a heaping helping of some tilt-a-whirling stoner rock on ‘Hunter’s Moon,’ a track that recalls the stomp of Queens of the Stone Age. The crunchy, chugging riff also bears the familiar mark of one of the band’s signature influences, ZZ Top, but with the added pyrotechnics of an organ solo that’s equal parts Edgar Winter and Boston.”

QCNH is 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.

Hear additional QCNH singles:

-“Suit in the Back”

-“Better in the Morning”

Leading into the release of QCNH, Quaker City Night Hawks will be on tour throughout February, including shows with Blackberry Smoke, Shooter Jennings and Brandy Zdan. The band will play a hometown album release show on March 1st at Shipping & Receiving, and more tour dates will be added soon.
