(Austin, Texas) — The Warhorses is pleased to announce the release of “Leaving In Your Eyes,” the first Texas Country radio single from their forthcoming self-titled album, is available on CD Tex and will officially be “going for adds” on August 29, 2016. “Leaving In Your Eyes,” which was produced by Dave Percefull of yellow DOG Studios in Wimberley, Texas, is being promoted by Debbie Green Promotions.
Kicking off with a hooky guitar lick,“Leaving In Your Eyes” features a singable melody and a driving beat. The lead single on The Warhorses, the song is also the starter song for their live performances, setting the pace for the energetic show that follows.
“This is one of the first songs I ever wrote for this band,” said Casey Shaw (lead vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, harmonica, songwriter). “Simply put, it’s about a girl who can’t make up her mind. She keeps you hanging on, but you know she’s event ually going back to him. It’s kind of an ambiguous song that leaves it up the listener to decide the rest of the story.”
Shaw (vocals, guitar, mandolin, harmonica, songwriter), a US Army and Iraq War veteran, founded the band in 2012. Reconnecting with Sonny Bihl (guitar) and Seth “Tobo” Tobin (bass, songwriter), after several years of each suffering through broken bands, “missed connections” and other social media escapades, the line-up was completed with the addition of Phil Medina (drums) and Lucas Seiferman (lead guitar and harmony vocals). Releasing their first EP, REGARDLESS, in 2014, The Warhorses made their way onto Texas radio with the Top 50 single, “Leave Me Alone,” and a Top 75 with “Heart Like Mine.”
With influences that range from the classic styles of Robert Earl Keen, Guy Clark, and Townes Van Zandt to the honky-tonk edginess of Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and Dwight Yoakam, it becomes clear that they also look to the dynamics of Reckless Kelly and Micky and The Motorcars for inspiration. With a focus on having a big sound and good guitar tones, the drums drive the band as Shaw’s southern vocal draws you into the very personal stories he has written about life, and mostly, love.
THE WARHORSES is scheduled for an October 7, 2016 release through indieExtreme and Ingrooves Music Group. The single is available to purchase now on iTunes and other digital retailers.
