The Wood Brothers Announce New Album and Tour, Release First Track

The Wood Brothers

The Wood Brothers have announced their sixth album, One Drop of Truth, will be released on February 2nd. The trio of Oliver Wood, Chris Wood, and Jano Rix also released the first track from the album to give fans a taste of what’s to come.

“River Takes The Town” is a down-tempo and insightful tune that features Chris Wood’s impeccable feel and melodic sense on the double bass. While the band gets into more of their jazz, country, and rock sound later, the acoustic blues number carries weight to set the album up.

“It’s nice to go back to the roots for just a minute and hear a stripped down moment before all the bigger sounds hit,” Oliver Wood told Paste Magazine. “We also liked this song to introduce the album since the subject matter has current relevance—although written prior, we happened to record it the day after Houston was flooded by Hurricane Harvey.”

“River Takes the Town” is available for download now on iTunes. The Wood Brothers are currently on tour with dates going well into 2018.
