NEW RECORD REDEMPTION & RUIN
I. EXCLUSIVE TDM3
REDEMPTION & RUIN
II. ABOUT THE ALBUM
Redemption & Ruin is set to release via New West Records on September 16.
After TDM3 contemplated countless songs to record, a dozen made the cut to be recorded in Nashville this past fall. With those twelve songs (give or take a few bonus tracks...), Redemption & Ruin, consisting of carefully selected hand-picked cover songs, was set into motion. Why so careful you ask? Well, because there were two rules...
REDEMPTION & RUIN HAS TWO DISTINCT SIDES; it's half gospel songs with a proclivity towards the darker end of the spectrum of religious music (Redemption) and half songs of vice (Ruin). In a very strict sense, the band-members were looking for songs which fully and wholeheartedly fit in one of those two categories. There could be no in between; it was all or nothing. "Drunken Hearted Man" is the first "ruin" debut and a new spin on the original by blues ghost Robert Johnson.
- THE BAND SELECTED SONGS WRITTEN BY THEIR HEROES: TDM3 wanted to give fans and new friends a look at their inspiration when creating original material. These are covers, with the full TDM3 treatment, but the writers of each of the covers were selected with purpose.
**Guests include Emmylou Harris, Jerry Douglas, Tim O'Brien, Darrell Scott, guitar great Duane Eddy and many more. For more info and a complete list of players on "Drunken Hearted Man" and the other Redemption & Ruin tracks, click the more details button.
