‘National Bohemian’ coming February 1st, 2011 + tour

Posted on

The Bridge will release their fifth studio album National Bohemian on February 1, 2011 through Woodberry Records/Thirty Tigers. For the latest effort, we’ve enlisted Grammy Award-winning producer and Los Lobos multi-instrumentalist Steve Berlin to join the band behind the boards. Ranging from the sonically dense, voodoo-tinged rock of “Sanctuary” to the modern day murder ballad “Moonlight Mission,” the 11-track collection is shaped by the dynamics that distinguish the band’s two principle songwriters Cris Jacobs and Kenny Liner. Jacobs delivers Dixie-drenched southern soul, while Liner’s approach is steeped in swaggering American roots music. As a preview to the recording, we’re offering a free download of “Moonlight Mission” on the widget to the right.

Plans are set for The Bridge to tour throughout 2011 in support of National Bohemian. They’ll kick off the year sharing a three-night run with Trombone Shorty that includes New Year’s Eve at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia. The band will then celebrate the album’s release by headlining a hometown record release party at Ram’s Head Live in Baltimore on January 29 (tickets onsale Friday December 10th @ 10am). In February, The Bridge will head out for a string of dates across the east coast with Tea Leaf Green before traveling to the midwest to support Galactic. The March leg includes the band’s first headline show at Cervante’s Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, CO.
