Just as Southeast Ohio begins a tender thaw after a particularly brutal winter, regional cosmically minded alternative country rockers Jake Dunn & The Blackbirds announce that they are gearing up at long last to release a brand new, aptly titled full-length: Sad Songs later this year.

Today, the band releases the eponymous title track and first single off the forthcoming release, “Sad Songs.”

The song aches with palpable catharsis conveyed over soaring guitars that sound like purification by fire; frontman Jake Dunn reminding us of music’s brutal potential to heighten both the initial sensations of falling in love and the harrowing emotional darkness of stark sorrow.


The band plans to release the full record late this summer, and you can keep tabs on them by following them on Facebook.
