Wild American Runners, the third full-length from alt-country band, Arliss Nancy(Fort Collins, CO), is now available for Pre-Order. You can stream the first single from the record, “Coals”, on Absolute Punk now. The album is officially out in October on Black Numbers.
Wild American Runners follows up Arliss Nancy’s 2012 album, Simple Machines, on Loose Charm Records. Also of note, the band’s first full-length, 2009’s Dance To Forget, is available for free download from Death To False Hope Records.
Formed in 2007, Arliss Nancy owe their sound to the dual influences of both Americana roots rock and gritty, bearded punk. From the outset, singer-songwriter Cory Call excelled at juxtaposing the simplicity of the classic American blue-collar songwriter with the subtlety and nuance of a well-read, withdrawn poet. Now, with nearly 6 years, 3 full length albums and 2 EPs under their belt, that dichotomy is as persistent as ever with the addition of bassist Kyle Oppold as half of the songwriting force behind Arliss Nancy’s Wild American Runners Black Numbers debut. The record will be immediately palatable to fans of alt-country mainstays like Lucero and Two Cow Garage, but the discerning ear will hear hints of a wide array of influences. From the dingy gravel of Midwestern pop punk to the whimsical balladry of Bruce Springsteen, Arliss Nancy’s sound is a triumph of contrasts, and they aim to prove it with their third full-length Wild American Runners.
