Our new album "Can't Judge a Book" is officially out now!! The album is a collection of songs that we picked up in our travels, sometimes it was a song we heard another band perform or a song that captured a moment while we were on the road, or in the case of Chuck Berry's "Promised Land" it was the story behind the song that made us want to record it.
The album also includes a brand new original song called "Naturally Crazy" inspired by one of our tours through France and the realization that anyone who chooses to spend half their life on the road and rambling from city to city all over the world has to be naturally crazy, not only to want to live a life where you're constantly on the move, but also in order to roll with the punches, sometimes literally, and survive.
You can download the new album on iTunes and Amazon and it's also streaming on Spotify. Or if you're old school, like me, then you can order a copy of the CD via CD Baby.
Our new album "Can't Judge a Book" officially comes out on Aug 23rd and will be available in most places where music can be found (iTunes, Amazon, etc), and to celebrate the release we have a string of shows happening all over the Northeast beginning with Aug 23rd at Dangerously Delicious Pies in Washington DC and Aug 24th at The Stoltz Listening Room in Easton, Maryland.
We really can't wait for you to hear the new album and we hope to see you at a show real soon!! -Ward Hayden & The Outliers
