Midland announces ‘Live From The Palomino’ album

New track “Cheatin’ Songs (Live From The Palomino)” leads Feb 28th release

When modern traditionalists Midland revived a legendary North Hollywood venue last year, the buzz of a one-night-only event sparked a new album. The critically-acclaimed show will be released on Big Machine Records February 28th with a ten track collection called Midland Live From The Palomino. The Grammy-nominated trio recorded their set in front of fans, media and industry insiders who crowded into the iconic honky-tonk venue. Variety praised, “The group’s recent sophomore album, Let It Roll, provided a head rush of a neo-vintage good time that finds its most natural live home in a slightly seedy confined space, but which shouldn’t be begrudged its chance to turn theaters and arenas into dives for a night.”

“Places like this are disappearing,” explains lead singer Mark Wystrach, “so you want to remember, to grab the moments while you still can. You think about who’s been on that stage and you can’t help but feel connected to so much greatness. We live for hardcore honky-tonks, and to be able to hold onto that night and bring a little slice of it through this album to our fans is special for us.”

The forthcoming live project features a live version of their latest offering, “Cheatin’ Songs” which scored most added on playlists at country radio and whose accompanying music video gives a behind-the-scenes look at the Palomino Club’s magic. Acclaimed by The New York Times for their “retro country elegance,” filming the video in a bar that’s seen a myriad dalliances was metaphorically sound.
