[image-1]ShoRo have been working hard for us and it’s all paying off with a new record, BY BLOOD, set to drop on Fri. April 12, just in time for High Water Festival April 13-14 (and, bonus, Record Store Day a.k.a. RSD on April 13).

To sweeten this news, the duo released BY BLOOD‘s first single, “The Wire,” today on all streaming platforms. And it’s … it’s really freaking good. Cary Ann Hearst self-deprecatingly pleads the narrator’s case as an earnest and loyal human, if one with (forgivable) flaws.

Pre-order BY BLOOD now to get “The Wire” download immediately. You can do that via the Monster Music & Movies website here, then pickup on release day (or on RSD).

The Shovels & Rope social posts says, “This is likely to be the busiest and best year to be a Shovels & Rope fan, still more to come…”

Enjoy the new track here (also on Spotty):
