Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers Announce Sophomore LP, ‘Loved Wild Lost’
Nick Bluhm and the Gramblers will release their sophomore album, ‘Loved Wild Lost,’ on April 21. The San Francisco-based rockers unveiled an album trailer, which you can watch above, as well as the forthcoming LP’s 11-song track list, which you'll find below the cover art:
In a press release, Bluhm revealed ‘Loved Wild Lost’ will be a departure from the band’s 2013 self-titled debut.
“‘Loved Wild Lost’ is a sincere and sophisticated collection of songs steeped in tradition, but of its own time,” the band’s frontwoman said. “After three solid years of playing as a band across the country, we have had time to learn, reflect and grow. This album displays a departure into the deeper and more contemplative themes of people in transition and the struggle to retain the energy and optimism of youth as life becomes more complex.”
In anticipation of the new album, Bluhm and the Gramblers will play month-long residencies in the Bay Area, Chicago and Nashville, as well as a gig at this year's Mountain Jam.
