moe. TO RELEASE NO GUTS, NO GLORY -
THEIR ELEVENTH STUDIO ALBUM -
ON SUGAR HILL RECORDS, MAY 27, 2014
Dynamic new album is moe.'s first collaboration
with renowned producer Dave Aron
Over a journey spanning nearly a quarter-century, moe. has let their knack for dynamic, democratic improvisation influence nearly every facet of the band's existence. In concert, they stretch the boundaries of their source material into intricate, set-long suites where distinct songs seamlessly segue into one another in exhilarating fashion. In the studio, their eclectic, wide-ranging sensibilities manifest in playful, varied albums that spotlight both their fluid musicianship and their incisive, hook-laden songwriting.
Available May 27, 2014 on Sugar Hill Records, moe.'s new album No Guts, No Glory finds moe. at their most inventive and resilient. The album's eleven songs (fourteen on the deluxe CD, digital, and double vinyl editions, and features artwork by Emek) took a winding path into existence. ''These songs were written with an acoustic album in mind,'' says guitarist and vocalist Chuck Garvey. When that original intention fell victim to logistical hurdles, Garvey says, ''we ended up making a whole different thing.''
