Howlin Rain:

Howlin Rain is back on the road this summer. Fittingly, they’ll be celebrating a new
series of limited edition live albums entitled, ‘Under the Wheels,’ while continuing to
support their acclaimed 2018 studio album, ‘The Alligator Bride,’ which Uncut
Magazine called, “classic rock in the most pastoral, sun-soaked ‘70s sense, with traces
of Springsteen at his most gospel, Creedence at their grooviest, Free and American

Intended to be a direct conversation with fans, ‘Under The Wheels’ is a no-rules,
anything goes series culled from multi-track live recordings made on the road. The
debut installment, ‘Live From The Coasts (Volume 1)’ leans heavily to the band’s
improvisational side and is the first of a 2-part curation comprised of East and West
Coast performances in 2018-19. It’s set for August 30th release via Howlin Rain
founding member Ethan Miller’s Silver Current Records, with Volume 2 to follow in Fall

“No matter how accomplished a studio album a band makes there is still something
even more elevated and relatable about a live performance captured well. The audience
and musicians engaged in an ecstatic, emotional dance together, the sound of lightspeed
group creativity under heavy pressure, feats of improvised melody and feel
beyond expectation and of course the raw edges, rough corners and deeply human
sound of artists completely exposed in the high temp firing and fusing of their hopes,
risks, vulnerabilities and ultimately triumphs of imperfection and musical joyrides beyond
conscious imagination,” says Miller. “That’s my favorite place for Howlin Rain to be and
my intention with the live series is to open a spigot between the fans and these captured
live adventures and to leave it open as an ongoing conversation about our spiritual
dance together.”

‘Under the Wheels: Live From The Coasts (Volume 1)’ will be available on limited
edition and deluxe/special edition vinyl packages that Silver Current has become known
for, in addition to limited edition cassette and digital formats. Tracks include an
extended ten minute-plus instrumental melodic burner “To the Wind,” the show-stopping
first album favorite “Death Prayer in Heaven’s Orchard,” the rarely performed live acidsoul
cooker “Goodbye Ruby” and ‘The Alligator Bride’ album keystones “Missouri” and
“Coming Down,” the latter having grown into a 13+ minute set closer with all controls set
for the heart of the sun.
