After four-full length albums and 800 shows in 44 states since 2008, These United States may have earned the title of Least Lazy Band in America. They’re still going at it, too: the five-piece folk band will release their fifth album, These United States, on June 12 via United Interests.
The album was recorded all across the U.S. in 2011 (These United States, if you will) over the course of a year. It also features over 20 collaborators—members of Deer Tick, Phosphorescent, Langhorne Slim and Ben Sollee, to name a few. They’re streaming the album on soundcloud until the album’s release, so if you like what you hear, you can buy the album here.
