Well, things sure are getting down to the nitty-gritty for Fair To Midland,who are now just about a month off from the release of their long-awaited, fourth full-length album release, Arrows and Anchors
. And, as we approach that date, it's no surprise that more and more information is leaking out about the disc.
Earlier this month, the band released the cover art and tracklisting for the new album, and, this week, the band released the above trailer promoting its release. Says one member of the new disc in a voice-over in the above clip: "It's probably not the Fair To Midland that you're used to." Then again, neither are these pictures, which find the band hanging out with the cast and crew of Jackass from back in October.
We'll have more with the Dallas-based, Sulphur Springs-sprung outfit as their album release approaches, but for now, check out Arrows and Anchors' album art and track listing after the jump.
