Lubbock rock band No Dry County’s first full-length album, The Night Before, will officially be released March 10. The band has been working on the album for roughly the last six months with Jay Saldana (percussion for Wade Bowen, William Clark Green, Ross Cooper, etc) at the helm as chief producer.
The Night Before is the maturation of a band. It’s the spreading of wings and the confidence of knowing your sound. NDC shows their ability to capture the highs, lows, and in-betweens of the highway, late nights, smokey bars, and conquering your early adulthood. It’s the grit to endure until the wheels fall off.
You can currently preorder the album here.
