The long awaited fourth full-length album by the Wrinkle Neck Mules is set to be released on September 22, 2009 by Atlanta record label, Lower 40 Records. Let the Lead Fly (as in bullets) is to be their second record released on Lower 40. The Mules – who have developed a cult-like niche in pockets around the globe- have self produced, engineered and recorded this effort.
German based record label Blue Rose Records will also be releasing the record on September 22 throughout Europe. This will mark The Mules’ second international release.
Let the Lead Fly takes to highlighting banjos, mandolins, mountain harmony and pedal steel guitar. This is certainly nothing new for the band who admits to being a rock band with country bones and bluegrass skin. This Frankenstein is evident from the get-go with a fiddle and banjo sing-along title track, the high school lament “Howard Johnson” and the twisted classic country of “Waters All Run Dry”.
Let the Lead Fly will be available on all popular digital record stores and independent record stores near you.
