New Rise Records signees Arlington have shared a new single from their upcoming debut album A Walk Through Jackson County. The record release date is slated for Fall 2018.
“It’s the only track on our record that was completely written before we officially became a band. So, technically, it is the very first Arlington song,” the band said. “Also, it has a cowbell in it.”
If you dig The Strokes and Led Zeppelin as much as you do Jack White and Alabama Shakes, then you’ll find yourself magnetically drawn to Arlington. The band effortlessly meshes modern and classic sounds — all the while exploring darker lyrical themes. The result is an alt rock sound wholly its own.
“The album is a representation of the way in which we take our classic influences in a new direction by perverting and twisting them in our own little way,” Arlington stated.
The members of the band have known one another since they were 15. In fact, vocalist/guitarist Tyler Benko and bassist/vocalist Channing Peake were in a different band together, with drummer Grant Whitson serving as their tour manager for a stint on Warped Tour. When that previous band split, Benko and Peake partnered with Whitson to form Arlington.
