Promised Land Sound Announce New Album – ‘For Use And Delight’

Promised Land Sound will release their sophomore album For Use And Delight on October 2nd via Paradise of Bachelors. The release will be the band’s second for the label, also home to acclaimed releases by artists Hiss Golden Messenger, Steve Gunn, The Weather Station, and more. Today, NPR’s All Songs debuted the first track “She Take Me There” (below).

 When Promised Land Sound (PLS) released their debut album in 2013 on Paradise of Bachelors, some of them couldn’t yet legally drink, so their remarkable maturity and rich historical reference points were striking. Like Laura Marling or Jackson Browne-artists who wrote with impeccable emotional literacy while still teenagers – PLS too were able to grasp at an emotional gravity in their songwriting that seemed improbable at their age. So it’s no surprise that their new album, For Use And Delight, shows a tremendous amount of growth as musicians and songwriters.

The songwriting, as well as the musical prowess displayed during their transcendent live performances, have made the band a favorite warm-up act. They’ve spent time on the road with Angel Olsen and fellow Southerners Alabama Shakes and William Tyler. The band will head out on a West Coast Tour with fellow Nashville artist Natalie Prass in support of the album. More dates to be announced.
