Gainesville, Florida’s newest addition to the country/punk crossover train, The Takers, have just leaked three tracks from their upcoming debut for Suburban Home Records.
You can stream “Curse of a Drunk,” “Drift,” and “Friends in Bottles” on the band’s MySpace page.
Their debut album is entitled Taker Easy and will be released on LP/CD July 21st.
The band describes their sound as “influenced by 70’s outlaw country and honky-tonk classics made standard at the time by legends like Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Hank Williams Jr.”
Members have been playing in various Gainesville bands for years, with two members currently pulling double duty in No Idea Record’s Whiskey & Co.
The Takers released a 7” version of “Curse of a Drunk” on Suburban Home Records this past fall and have plans to release a collaborative split 7” with Austin Lucas in the near future.
