Hot Water Music frontman-turned-solo artist Chuck Ragan will release his second solo studio album, Gold Country, on September 1 via SideOneDummy.
Ragan explained: "We recorded the record at Flying Whale Studio up on this six acre mining claim called Arrowhead Mines. It's an old local mine that was pretty well known back in the day.
"The record is just another page in the book and another chapter in life and it's documenting where we are in that moment of time. Right now Gold Country is what I've lived for, everything I've worked to achieve and hold sacred and everything I strive to get home to."
Two tracks from the album, 'Glory' and 'Rotterdam,' are available for streaming from the label's website.
