2012's Burn.Flickr.Die was supposed to be American Aquarium's final album, but when that album (full of songs about failure and disillusionment) became their most successful to date, the band, reinvigorated, had no choice but to return with a new project. This past February, BJ Barham and company (Ryan Johnson, Bill Corbin, Whit Wright, Kevin McClain and the newest addition, Colin Dimeo) returned with their fan funded, Wolves, which has been a critic and fan favorite since its release. Wolves is raw, honest rock and roll; almost a coming of age record with Barham personal, reflective and more positive than previous releases.
True road dogs, the band was named "most active" band, in all genres, by Bandsintown for 2014, playing over 200 dates last year alone. Having seen them in NYC, both as support for Justin Townes Earle and Turnpike Troubadours, as well as headlining their own shows at Mercury Lounge, I can attest they are one of the best live bands around. This trip to the Big Apple finds them prepping to play for an even larger audience headlining the Gramercy Theatre. It's a show you definitely don't want to miss.
