"Long Black Braid," the latest single from TMBB, is available now!
Psyched to be back out on the road this week!
First stop of the run is TONIGHT at Gypsy Sally's in Washington, D.C. with The Southern Belles. Beautiful room, we're excited to be back. Doors at 7:00, music starts at 8:30!
New video up on the old interwebs, produced largely in the van cruising from one gig to another. Cheers guys, hope you enjoy!
Hey folks - Luke and I's dad David Mallett has a new record out and you should most definitely give it a listen. Luke and I sat in for a good part of the recording process and were lucky enough to get to contribute some guitar, banjo, vocals and a little songwriting on a couple tracks. Check it out when you get the chance, we're sure you'll dig it.
Here's the title track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpMNOCoMf_0
He's keeping up a pretty busy tour schedule, too; check out davidmallett.com for details.
Cheers dudes, catch you out there!
"Lights Along the River" is now available on 8-track tape, while supplies last!
Now, we realize these may be completely impractical for 99.9% of you out there, but for that .1% - we know you've been dying for some fresh tunes for your old ride and you're in luck.
Check 'em out on the TMBB store, where you'll find some other fresh gear like blaze orange beanies and the coolest beer coozies around. Cheers guys!
There's just somethin' about those hometown shows. We're beyond grateful for all of you who came out to spend your New Year's with us at Port City Music Hall, for Chris Ross and the North and the Ghosts of Johnson City crushin' it, for Ray MacGregor taking some wonderful photos to document the night, and Bob Tousignant for capturing the audio and making it live on archive.org - the show is currently up online in its entirety for any of you hoping to relive the night!
It was a joyous but bittersweet night as it was Brian Higgins' last gig with the band; our beloved drummer and pal has moved onto more air-conditioned pastures down in Florida with his wonderful lady and their sweet pup.
However, we can't express how thrilled we are to have Adam Cogswell taking over the drum helm after the carefully orchestrated passing of the torch at Port City (chariots of fire was playing, it was good). Adam's a badass dude and a renaissance man - an artist, Eagle Scout, a skateboarder, a snowboarder, a taxidermy aficionado, a hard-hitting rocker with a trainbeat to rival the Amtrak Downeaster and we're beyond psyched to have him on board.
2015 was a great year, but we're looking towards the future and we couldn't be more psyched. Thanks again to all of you out there showing support and keeping this train a-rollin'; couldn't do it without you!
Check out some of Ray's photos and come see us again some time...
Pretty blown away to see that BlueCollarSongwriting.com picked "Lights Along the River" as their top album of 2015. Huge honor, can't thank these guys enough. Check out the full article over at Blue Collar Songwriting!

Wow man. If you're from Maine you might have heard of O'Chang Comics' Temp Tales series. It's funnier than hell, and fouler than the foulest sailor. The creators of the cartoon are pretty good buddies and we were flattered as all get-out when they turned us into cartoons for the last episode "Crittah Gittahz." In the new one they cartooned us and also had us talk a little bit. Truly one of our proudest moments.
Also, a more accurate representation of Maine than lighthouse postcards and lobster t-shirts, no doubt.
