Acoustic Syndicate posts video; album out soon

Carolina rock-grass innovators Acoustic Syndicate will release a new album, "Rooftop Garden," on September 3. It released the video for the single, "Heroes," today.

The album is the Western Carolina-based group's first since 2004's "Long Way 'Round." The band went on hiatus, but began playing live again a few years back beginning with regional gigs like its annual holiday show at Visulite and festival dates during the summer.

The new track illustrates the band's evolution with a grander feel. It taps into the family band's farming roots and adds a bit of longing Peter Gabriel-style vocals. Good stuff!

Acoustic Syndicate plays gigs throughout the Carolinas during the rest of the summer and fall and returns to Charlotte for that annual gig at Visulite December 20. For more on the band click here.
