Chicago alt-Americana artists Longface have just announced their new album Hillbilly Wit, set to be released October 27th on Sooper Records. In addition to the announcement, the band is now streaming their new single “Ozone” via Post-Trash – listen now below. Pre-orders for Hillbilly Wit are available now via Sooper Records.
With their new record Hillbilly Wit, Longface have created a character driven piece of satire, executed through their blend of country-inspired folk leanings and grimy experimental rock. The band is looking to create a world where beer-drinking bumpkins, urban hipsters, and starving artists melt unevenly into a monstrous sideshow of rock n’ roll Americana. In heavier moments, Longface confronts social isolation, substance abuse, and economic stagnation. In lighter moments, he radiates a folksy playfulness and embraces the role of whimsical storyteller.
