Happy New Year friends, hope you rang in NYE in enjoyable (shitfaced) fashion. Here’s an unmastered sneak peak at the first track from Chris Kiehne’s long-promised The Western Throne. “The Revenant” begins in a similar hushed/folk style as most of his stellar 2011 combo (Pray for Daylight/A Widower’s Kind; tied at #24 among my Albums of 2011), but builds to something louder and more, well, rock than anything I’ve yet heard from him. No release date and/or album art yet for The Western Throne, but Kiehne says it’ll drop sometime this spring/summer, and for now the cover art is the poster for The Dark Knight Rises. Yeah I want to see that too.
