The Lone Bellow Announce New Ep 'The One You Should've Let Go' Released On December 9th Plus UK Tour March 2014

Brooklyn three-piece The Lone Bellow will release their debut UK EP 'The One You Should've Let Go' on December 9th through Descendant Records / Sony Music. Born in Brooklyn, New York, with deep family and musical roots in Georgia, the fast-rising acoustic trio The Lone Bellow is proving, show by show, that the sounds and stories of Main Street resonate on Main Streets everywhere, winning fans across America and now around the world with their particular brand of 'Brooklyn country'.

Led by Zach Williams, the Lone Bellow's lead singer and principal songwriter, the band begun with what as meant to be just a jam session with Williams' old friend Brian Elmquist and fellow singer Kanene Pipkin at a Brooklyn diner. Williams recalls, "three songs in, I realized I should quit what I'm doing and just make music with these people." The trio's debut four-track EP is exuberant in its playing and welcoming in its attitude. Though the lyrics have a melancholic undercurrent, the rhythm tracks are more rave-ups than ruminations, with swelling three-part harmonies and rousing group choruses. 'The One You Should've Let Go' acts as the perfect introduction to The Lone Bellow in anticipation of their UK debut album release in spring 2014.

The Lone Bellow released their self-titled debut album in the US earlier this year to unanimous rave reviews from everyone from USA Today, The New York Times, NPR and The Associated Press, to Paste, Forbes and Filter. The band subsequently appeared on both Conan O' Brien and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Since the US release the band haven't stopped touring. They have recently completed a summer-long national tour of festivals, including Stagecoach, Austin City Limits, Outsidelands and Newport Folk Fest, as well as playing with artists such as Brandi Carlile, Robert Plant and The Civil Wars. They've also recently played their first run of headline shows, one of which drew a jubilant hometown crowd of over 3,000 on a rain-soaked Brooklyn night.

Williams first came to songwriting via near-tragedy when his young wife was catastrophically injured in a horseback riding accident. Physicians initially told Williams that, at best, his wife would leave the hospital a paraplegic, but after pioneering treatment she ultimately regained the ability to walk. Having experienced a feeling of something close to a miracle, it revitalised Williams' drive to be creative. Two years ago, following a soul-searching trip he'd taken with his wife, Williams re-emerged with a stack of deeply personal songs -- tender but frank tales of romantic rupture and hard-fought redemption -- rooted in the country, folk and gospel of his Southern youth. Having played in Philadelphia opening for their friends in The Civil Wars, Williams met with Grammy Award Winning producer Charlie Peacock who went on to record their debut album in three days at New York's Rockwood Music Hall, capturing the spirit and the sound of these three closely-harmonized individuals, both at their most confident and their most vulnerable.
