The Record Company’s highly anticipated new album Play Loud is out today on Concord Records. Listen/stream HERE.

On Sunday, the GRAMMY-nominated rock band will kick off their 32-City tour in Milwaukee with support from JJ Wilde on select dates. See below for a complete list of dates; additional info and tickets are HERE.

Listen to an interview with SPIN/Lipps Service Podcast HERE and watch the band’s Chris Vos on Premier Guitar “Hooked” HERE.

How High,” the first single released from the LP, is currently #3 at AAA Radio. The track has also reached Top 3 on the Americana Singles Chart while Play Loud has been Top 3 on the Non-Comm Albums Chart in advance of its street date.

Play Loud is produced by GRAMMY-winning producer Dave Sardy (Oasis, Wolfmother, Modest Mouse, LCD Soundsystem.) On the album, the group stretches out artistically and explores their far-flung influences. “We totally flipped the process on this record to allow for every idea and possibility, so it wasn’t just the three of us, closed off in our bubble. It was like, ‘Let’s take some risks and see what we can really do,’” describes bassist Alex Stiff.

The Record Company—consisting of guitarist/lead vocalist Chris Vos, bassist Alex Stiff and drummer Marc Cazorla—most recently released their EP Side Project (also via Concord Records), which finds the band reimagining and reconstructing some of their favorite tracks by a wide range of artists including Big Mama Thornton, Cypress Hill, INXS and Willie Dixon. Listen HERE.

Play Loud is the follow-up to the band’s critically lauded sophomore album All of This Life. Upon its release, Rolling Stone noted that the single “Life to Fix” “isn’t so much a return to form as it is taking that form to a big new level,” while NPR Music raved that the track “breathes new life into a style of music.”

The band’s debut, Give It Back to You, earned them a GRAMMY nomination for Best Contemporary Blues Album. The critically acclaimed record produced three Top Ten hits at Triple-A radio, including lead single “Off the Ground,” which reached #1 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs chart. Entertainment Weekly describes their debut album as a “soul scorcher.” The Record Company has appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” CBS “This Morning,” NPR’s “World Café” and SiriusXM, and has shared bills with John Mayer, My Morning Jacket, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Zac Brown Band.
