Rolling Stone debuts CHUCK RAGAN's new album TILL MIDNIGHT (out 3/25)

"…an impassioned, undeniable shot of sing-along Americana." –Rolling Stone

"This record is in many ways along the same lines of what I've done, but sonically we pushed ourselves further in the recording than we've done before," folk troubadour CHUCK RAGAN tellsRolling Stone. "With our initial approach to Till Midnight, I found that it created a much more cohesive process with a much more unified sound. I believe whatever energies we walk into the studio with and carry on our shoulders throughout the session is the energy that will go down on the recording. We all felt great, kept it live, free, fun and moving the entire time and I feel that we transferred that positive energy to the best of our ability on this record." Till Midnight is streaming in its entirety on Rolling Stoneand can be heard here:
Ragan's fourth studio album Till Midnight is due out on March 25, 2014 via SideOneDummy Records. It was produced, engineered, and mixed by multi-instrumentalist Christopher Thorn of Blind Melon behind the walls of Fireside Sound and Fonogenic Studios in Los Angeles. Guest vocalists include Lucero frontman Ben NicholsJenny O., Dave Hause, and Chad Price and Jon Snodgrass of Drag The River.Innocent Words declares, "Ragan continues to be one of the best things going, not only in the punk/folk genre, but one of the best things going in music right now." OUTBURN testifies, "Ragan's post-punk storytelling style is reminiscent of a young Bruce Springsteen and The Gaslight Anthem's Brian Fallon." Alternative Press asserts, "There aren’t many Americana albums stronger than Till Midnight."
