Today’s song is “Dead & Gone” by These United States. This is the second single from their self titled latest release due out June 12th. The band has been supporting the album on a run of Midwest and East Coast dates with Trampled By Turtles, commencing the tour with a sold-out Minneapolis performance.These United States is the quartet’s fifth studio album to date and features collaborations with John McCauley of Deer Tick, Michael Nau of Cotton Jones, Matthew Houck of Phosphorescent, Laura Burhenn of The Mynabirds, Ben Sollee, David Moore of Langhorne Slim, Josh Read of Revival, and the entire Frontier Ruckus band. Last year, the band played its 800th show in its 44th state, and Elliott visited his 49th state (Hawaii). These United States is a band that has an excitable soulful, rock and roll sensibility.
