The new album was written on the road, and will be a quick follow-up to 2014’s Down On Deptford Broadway. The band’s folk sound, centered around standup bass, accordion, and acoustic and electric guitar, is continuously evolving.

The single “Wanted” off the new album showcases the increasing punk influences the group is adopting. The music video for the track was revealed today.

The band has been on the road for most of the last 18 months, and it wrote the The Devil, The Heart & The Fight while headlining shows and opening for Frank Turner. The album will be available for purchase Sept. 30.
