“Get Along” MP3 Download approved for posting!

Chris Shiflett is already known as the lead guitarist for Foo Fighters and the frontman for Jackson United. This new album is steeped in his love for classic country artists (Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings), rockabilly (Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran), and deep-rooted rock bands (The Rolling Stones, The Replacements). These infectious Americana-laced rock songs are some of the best he’s penned, from the chiming keys and buoyant, ringing guitars of “Get Along” to the pedal steel- and mandolin-lined heartache of “Bandaged,” and from the spry, Old 97s-ian “Baby, Let It Out” to the rueful country swing of “Death March.” Recorded at the Foo Fighters’ Studio 606 in Los Angeles, CA, this past December and January, the core band on Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants is Shiflett (vocals, guitar), 606 house engineer John Lousteau (drums, in addition to engineering), and Derek Silverman (keyboards).  The album’s additional instrumentation was performed by an array of fine musicians, including Davey Faragher (Elvis Costello and The Imposters, Jenny Lewis, John Hiatt) on bass, Greg Leisz (Wilco, Lucinda Williams, Whiskeytown) on pedal steel, Stevie Blacke (Beck, Weezer, Colbie Caillat) on violin and mandolin, and Audra Mae on backing vocals.

Filter premiered the “Get Along” MP3 last week.

Please let me know if you would like review copies of this album and/or if you would like to pursue an interview opportunity with Chris and the band. Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants have just finished up a tour in support of Jesse Malin and the St. Marks Social; more tour dates are forthcoming.
