In celebration of the upcoming release of THE STRING CHEESE INCIDENT’s album SONG IN MY HEAD, out April 29 on SCI Fidelity Records/Loud & Proud Records, the band will perform a free concert on The Hill in Boulder–the Colorado city they’ve called home since the early days of the band–Monday, April 28 from 6 PM to 8 PM Mountain Time with the stage set up on 13th Street and College Avenue. The band posted a video announcement here.
THE STRING CHEESE INCIDENT recently premiered a behind the scenes, in-studio performance video for new track “So Far From Home” on USAToday.com. The video explores the band’s creative process in the studio working out the song’s elements and captures the energy in the studio between them and the album’s producer Jerry Harrison of the Talking Heads.
SONG IN MY HEAD is perhaps the band’s tightest and most skillful album yet. It features 10 new songs written collaboratively by the group. After years of feeling more like live players than studio musicians, the band members finally tapped into the skill that two decades worth of performing brings. There’s also an overarching sense of joy and renewed passion throughout. “Stylistically, the album feels like the most modern expression of our music,” drummer Michael Travis says. “We continue to be the newest version of our expanding stylistic interest. This album feels more genuinely us. It’s everything we’ve learned about making an album.” Check out a promotional video for the album here.
