Anticipation has been building for a new release and for the first time in 4 years, Railroad Earth found themselves back in the studio recording all new material. It’s definitely a home-grown project, much like the band itself. Railroad Earth’s new studio release, Amen Corner, was written and recorded at singer Todd Sheaffer’s empty, 300 year-old house in New Jersey’s rural countryside. What happened inside the building was the experience of a lifetime for the band’s members, resulting in an early creative pinnacle of a gifted young band, and an album that is an instant Americana classic. Amen Corner is a collection of crisp and crafted roots, bluegrass, and acoustic sides that resonates in all the right places. The tunes breathe both on and between the notes. They hit you immediately, but then linger like a good buzz. Amen Corner hit stores June 10, 2008 on SCI Fidelity Records.
