For whatever reason, we've been thinking a lot about Eisley lately--maybe it's the whole all of them being married thing, dunno. More likely, we're just getting antsy waiting around for new material, which, hey, this post from family band's patriarch, Boyd Dupree, says is still coming, and soon.
Says the Tyler-based family band's father: The band is currently mixing its new, still-owned-by-Warner Bros. songs. And, yes, the band still hopes to release the album this fall, just in time for a new tour the band is currently planning. But, says Boyd, there are "Obstacles. Out of our control. Working on resolving."
In the meantime, the band's been working on some other things--like some cover songs, just for kicks.
Maybe you remember Stacy Dupree's cover of "Silver Springs" from back in February? Well, back in July, her big sis, Sherri, posted another cover "for fun" to the band's Facebook page. And while our sharing of this cover song may lack some timeliness, it's gets made up for in indie credibility. After the jump, give Ms. Max Bemis' take on Neutral Milk Hotel's "Two-Headed Boy, Pt. 2" a much-deserved listen.
