Micah P. Hinson returns with new album and UK/European tour in September

MICAH P. HINSON PRESENTS THE HOLY STRANGERS
NEW ALBUM OUT 8 SEPTEMBER VIA FULL TIME HOBBY
HEAR FIRST TWO TRACKS
FULL UK & EUROPEAN TOUR IN SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER
Micah P. Hinson’s new album ‘Presents The Holy Strangers’ is described by the artist as being a “modern folk opera”. Telling the story of a war time family, going from birth to love, to marriage and children, to war and betrayal, murder to suicide – spanning all of the strange and glorious places life can lead. We follow their story, we see their decisions, we see their faults and their beauty. We live with them, we die with them.

Two years in the making, Micah wrote and recorded The Holy Strangers in Denison, Texas, incorporating ancient reel to reels, analogue keyboards, old Tascam and Yamaha desks. The recording only entered the digital realm once pre-mastering took place.
Split across two pieces of the vinyl, the 14 tracks which make up The Holy Strangers are at times sparse and haunting; at other times luscious, maybe even euphoric. From the Johnny Cash-style country single “Lover’s Lane,” to the album’s broad, spoken-word centrepiece ‘Micah Book One’.

The Holy Strangers covers a lot of ground over the course of its hour long running time, appealing to both long-time fans and new ones alike.
Micah P. Hinson Presents The Holy Strangers is released 8th September 2017 on Full Time Hobby. Micah will be touring Europe throughout September and October with a full band.
