Following a successful run with their debut album, Onwards, in 2017, Mike Twelve is back with a sophomore effort, City On A Hill, due for a March release.
A debut single is out today, City That Drowned, that plows familiar ground for the Boston-based band. Their trademark has become original songs that utilize the familiar bluegrass setting, but with a lyrical depth not always expected in the genre. Here they tell a dystopian tale of a past time in the form of stories shared from father to son.
The group’s lineup remains unchanged – Evan Murphy on guitar, Nate Sabat on bass, Bronwyn Keith-Hynes on fiddle, David Benedict on mandolin, and BB Bowness on banjo.
They created this music video to accompany the new single, shot and edited by Bill Filipiak, a Nashville filmmaker who specializes in this medium.
Radio programmers can get the track via AirPlay Direct.
The band is touring now in New England, but heads off for a UK tour in March, getting home just in time for the album release. See all their tour dates online.
