      Blues Traveler

      with Animal Years
      n the heels of the bands 30th anniversary, multi-platinum rock mavericks Blues Traveler will release their 13th studio album through BMG October 12.Entitled, Hurry Up & Hang Around, the 12-track opus finds the band re-energized and laser- focused stirring up an intoxicating brew of rowdy rock, smoky psychedelica, southern folk, staggering soul, and brash blues.For the first time ever, the members of the GRAMMY Award-winning group, featuring John Popper (vocals, harmonica), Chan Kinchla (guitar), Tad Kinchla (bass), Ben Wilson (keyboards), and Brendan Hill (drums) decided to rent a house in Nashville to write and record with GRAMMY Award-winning producer Matt Rollings (Willie Nelson). Rollings intense attention to detail unlocked a rich sonic spectrum as he challenged and pushed each member to excel without compromising or taking no for an answer.We were going through some changes as far as our infrastructure goes, admits Popper. We parted ways with two different managers. No preparations had really been made, and it seemed like it might be too late to make new music. Between taking meetings, we were by ourselves writing in the garage every day of this Nashville house. That was pretty cool, because we felt like a garage band again. There was a spirit of survival. We had something to celebrate, so we really came together as a band. Matt put it all on turbo boost, because hes one of the finest producers weve ever worked with, period, adds Popper. He can bring out any sound he wants. He got takes out of me that I couldnt ever get out of myself, and Ive tried. However, he also let me be me. Its one of the best production experiences weve ever had. It was an unexpected musical education.About BLUES TRAVELER:Since 1987, the GRAMMY Award-winning group, featuring John Popper [vocals, harmonica], Chan Kinchla [guitar], Tad Kinchla [bass], Ben Wilson [keyboards], and Brendan Hill [drums]have penned some of the biggest singles to hit the airwaves. The quintet kicked off their career with a trifecta of gold-certified albums, including Blues Traveler [1990], Travelers and Thieves [1991], and Save His Soul [1993]. 1994s Four represented a major breakthrough, earning a six-times platinum certification and yielding classics such as Hook, The Mountain Wins Again, and the ubiquitous Run-Aroundwhich earned a GRAMMY for Best Rock Performance By a Duo or Group. Continuing that hot streak, 1998s Straight On Till Morning also went platinum. Throughout the 2000s, they prolifically unleashed albums and toured relentlessly, selling out venues worldwide and building something of a legend.
