In other news, we’re pleased to announce the reason we’ve been somewhat off the radar for the past couple of months… we’ve been recording a new album! Entitled State of the Union, the album will feature 12 new Rivergods tracks recorded at PWOP Studios in New London by producer Carl Franklin. We’re looking at a late January release… details very soon. In the meantime, how about a preview?
Summer dates are rolling in… mark your calendars! All the deets are on our shows page.
We’re excited to be back in Chester on Saturday, April 30 as part of the 3rd Annual Music Festival & Duck Race! Woo hoo! It’s a 3-day affair, with lots of beer, bands and fun, but we’re excited to be playing Saturday evening RIGHT after the race (which starts at 4:15) at the Pattaconk 1850 Bar & Grill (33 Main St, Chester, CT) from 5-8ish. No cover, great food and atmosphere! More info here.
Were back in action and excited to make our debut at Daddy Jack’s, a wonderful downtown New London restaurant that’s starting to make it’s mark featuring great live music along with its scrumptious food and incredible atmosphere. This show will mark the debut of our talented new bass player, Mark Gehret, and is also a bit of a birthday celebration for Ben! There’s no cover, either, and did we mention the food?!? Good times will be had… Come to eat, drink and enjoy the show! More info here.
Greetings from the now-frigid Connecticut shoreline… While the weather is cold, things are simmering for the Rivergods!
We closed out 2015 with a fun holiday acoustic show at Old Orchard Farm barn (a couple of videos below) and are looking forward to finishing up recording on our follow-up to Never Grow Old over the next few months, while also lining up some fun dates for the Spring/Summer.
In the meantime, Ben and Nancy will perform at the Hygienic Hootenanny on Friday, January 29 at 33 Golden in New London, CT as part of the 37th annual Hygienic Art Show opening weekend.
Stay warm out there!
