Midland will "Let It Roll"
Wednesday, June 5, 2019
– Midland will "Let It Roll" in late August because that's when the trio's sophomore album hits the streets.
"We are excited to announce our new album 'Let it Roll' will be released on August 23rd. This is us and our band - the songs are deeply personal and from the heart. We look forward to sharing it with y'all," the group said in a Facebook post.
Midland covers a neo-traditional sound and dressed in old school country outfits.
This is the group's third release after puyting out a self-titled EP in 2016 and a full length, "On the Rocks," in 2017. The group's biggest hit was its single "Drinkin' Problem." "Make a Little" and "Burn Out" also charted as singles, going top 15 and top 5 respectively.
The trio consists of Mark Wystrach, Cameron Duddy and Jess Carson and formed in Dripping Springs, Texas.

Athletic-fit tee-shirts and a frat boy oversmile make the standard uniform for most of today's country crop. »»»
On the Rocks
"On the Rocks" proves there's more to Midland than just vintage western wear and Spaghetti Western-extra good lucks. Don't be deterred by the fact that bassist Cameron Duddy won an MTV Video Music Award for directing Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven" video because this is an album of solid and distinctly traditional, country music.
The single, "Drinkin' Problem," hearkens back to the good old days of drinking songs, before all these types of »»»
