North Carolina’s BIG Something are excited to announce their new album, Truth Serum! Truth Serum, the band’s third full-length album, will be released on November 4th, and features a guest appearance from NYC turntablist, DJ Logic. With a powerful sound that is both refreshingly original and yet classic in its approach, BIG Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk, jazz and improv, in order to take listeners on a journey through a myriad of musical styles.

Formed in 2009, BIG Something is one of the most exciting new rock bands to emerge from the southeast. The band features Nick MacDaniels (guitars, vocals), Doug Marshall (bass), Josh Kagel (keys, synth, trumpet), Casey Cranford (sax, EWI), Jesse Hensley (lead guitar), and Ben Vinograd (drums). With the help of Grammy-Nominated producer John Custer (Corrosion of Conformity, Cry of Love, Dag), the group recorded and released their 2010 debut concept album, Stories from the Middle of Nowhere, which quickly captured Home Grown Music Network’s 2010 Album Of The Year Award. Stories from the Middle of Nowherewas followed up by the widely well-received live album, Live from Uranus, as well as 2013’s Self-Titled.
After several years of relentless touring, the band has performed across the country as direct support for the likes of Galactic, moe., The B52s, Robert Randolph and The Family Band, Zach Deputy, DJ Logic, Toubab Krewe, and countless other up and coming artists. In turn, they have become a high demand festival act, and have appeared at FloydFest, Camp Barefoot, Blackwater, Strangecreek, Wormtown, Smilefest, Mantrabash, NC Music & Arts Festival, Pink Moon, Jerry Garcia’s Birthday Bash, Gathering of The Chaffee, Front Porch Fest, Domefest, and many more. BIG Something also hosts their own annual summer music festival and campout in Mebane, NC called The Big What?, which has sold out two years in a row, further propelling this imaginative, entertaining, and musically progressive jamband rooted in traditional American music of the southeast to a much wider national audience.
On the release of their new album, drummer Ben Vinograd tells us, “This album is the best representation of who we are on tape; nearly 5 years of relentless touring, practicing, and writing has culminated into one high energy banger of an album. When people ask what we sound like, I want to hand them this.” Singer/guitarist Nick MacDaniels adds, “This is the best energy we’ve ever had in the studio. All of the songs were tracked live as a 6 piece and we really hit some great peaks and moments together.“
BIG Something will release their new album, Truth Serum, on November 4th, 2014.
