Middle Class Rut are putting the finishing touches on their highly anticipated new album, Pick Up Your Head (Bright Antenna Records), mixed by Grammy winning producer Dave Sardy (Johnny Cash, LCD Soundsystem, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds).
Set for a May 21st release, Pick Up Your Head is the follow-up to 2010’s No Name No Color, which featured the hit single “New Low,” which shot to No. 5 at alternative radio, and whose companion video amassed more than 4 million YouTube views.
The band is raising the bar with Pick Up Your Head, an album Zack Lopez says is “an evolution of a lot of ideas we had as the writing for No Name No Color was winding down. I think we exhausted what we could do in the confines of just drums/guitars/vocals. Once we embraced the idea that anything goes, the songs poured out.”
