Head For the Hills - Blue RuinAsheville, NC -- Head for the Hills is pleased to announce their third studio album, Blue Ruin, released July 9th, 2013. Blue Ruin sees the Colorado quartet fusing bluegrass, jazz, hip-hop and indie rock into songs inspired by love and misery and comic books. Think Meta-fictional sea shanties, pop-infused newgrass murder ballads and urbane lyricism, twang and punch. Featuring twelve new original songs marked by moving narratives and stellar musicianship, Blue Ruin showcases the quartet's contemporary take on acoustic music; embracing the bluegrass pedigree while looking forward.

Head for the Hills is Adam Kinghorn on Guitar and vocals, Joe Lessard on violin and vocals, Matt Loewen on upright bass and vocals and Mike Chappell on acoustic and electric mandolins.

Recorded and mixed in Fort Collins, Colorado at Swingfingers Studios with ace engineer and banjoist Aaron Youngberg (Martha Scanlan, Cahalen Morrison and Eli West), Blue Ruin features contributions from Andy Hall (The Infamous Stringdusters), James Thomas, Gabe Mervine (The Motet), and more. Renowned screen print artist Timothy Doyle (Muse, The Black Keys, Lucas Films, NASA) created the stunning cover art and Grammy Award-winning mastering engineer David Glasser rounds out the production team. This is Head for the Hills at their most artistically fulfilled: self-produced and in top form. Blue Ruin is more than just a “bluegrass” record -- it’s a Head for the Hills bluegrass record.
