High Road is the new release by Black Cat Bone for 2021. Featuring 9 original songs written and recorded by the band, High Road is available through Spotify, Amazon, Apple Music, Bandcamp, and most major streaming services.
High Road is a minimalist experiment in Lo-Fi blues. Jangling open tuned guitars, overdriven bass, and rambling drums frame a howling lyrical narrative that delves into the exploits of a man whose life has gone off the rails.
High Road touches upon themes of endless existential searching. Travelling great distances to find a long lost love. Overcoming insurmountable odds to achieve satisfaction. Getting lost in the decadent pursuit of instant gratification. Recognizing the inevitable downfall of living an unsavory lifestyle. Knowing that where you come from ain’t no good unless you can get away from it. Examining yourself through a lens of cold stoicism. All of this has been wound up into one raw and frantic package of neoprimitive nihilism. This is pure Rustbelt Americana
“Where you come from is gone, where you thought you were going to never was there, and where you are is no good unless you can get away from it.”
