Nashville-based rock band, Colony House, have announced their fourth full-length album, The Cannonballers, out February 3rd, 2023. The news is accompanied by the release of their new single, “Landlocked Surf Rock,” an apt description of the band’s signature sound and a tribute to their home state of Tennessee. Listen to the song now below.
“We’ve always struggled to put a label on Colony House or at least be defined by one singular genre… That was until we uncovered this one minute and fifty-four-second little ditty,” frontman Caleb Chapman explains. “With half of us being Nashville natives and all of us being Tennessee natives, we wanted to write a love letter to our hometown and all of its charm and all of its absurdities. ‘LandLocked Surf Rock’ is our ‘Sweet Home Alabama’… There, I said it.”
Caleb was inspired to write the songs that became The Cannonballers while being locked down at home in 2020. “The pandemic was the first time since high school that I had been off the road for an entire year. We got to see the seasons change and experience our home again for the first time in a long time,” he says. “I think I was falling back in love with Tennessee and realizing how special it is to be born and raised in such a beautiful place.”
