A Thousand Horses Announce Their Second Album, ‘Bridges’
A Thousand Horses are set to release their sophomore album, Bridges, on June 2, through Big Machine Label Group. The 13-track project includes the band's current single, "Preachin' to the Choir," as well as an acoustic version of the chart-climbing song.
Following the warm reception of their first album, Southernality, A Thousand Horses say they have evolved as artists. All four band members -- Michael Hobby, Zach Brown, Graham DeLoach and Bill Satcher -- contributed as songwriters on Bridges.
"We’ve grown as writers and as singers,” Hobby tells The Boot. “I think that really applies to this new record: We brought the game up, a lot ... It’s going to sound like A Thousand Horses, just sonically bigger and, I guess mature would be the word.”
A Thousand Horses' sound is Southern-rock infused country, and while it'll be updated, it won't be changing as the ACM Awards-nominated group looks ahead.
“That’s who we are,” Hobby says. “Maybe it’s a little bigger, a little more aggressive [this time around].”
Bridges features seven acoustic songs: Six of them were recorded at the UK's famous Metropolis Studios, and the seventh is a live version of A Thousand Horses' No. 1 hit "Smoke," from the band's first album. Dann Huff, Corey Crowder and ATH produced Bridges.
A Thousand Horses are currently on tour; a list of their upcoming shows can be found on the band's website.
