New music Tuesday.

Silverada (formerly known as Mike and the Moonpies) have a new self-titled album coming soon, and they put out the lead single called “Anywhere But Here” in March.

Frontman Mike Harmeier wrote most of Silverada at home in his studio after years on the road, after wanting to branch out some in terms of the classic, beloved Mike and the Moonpies sound. He found a lot of inspiration through various books, sci-fi novels, astronomy and more.

And today, the band released another song called “Stay By My Side,” which finds them road weary and tired, ready to go home and have some rest. Though, as Harmeier notes in the lyrics, he’ll end up missing the road as soon as he gets back home, which is the constant conundrum of most touring artists.

His voice sounds great, and it’s another solid addition to the forthcoming album.

In addition to Harmeier, Silverada is comprised of Zach Moulton on steel guitar, bassist Omar Oyoque, Catlin Rutherford slinging guitar, and drummer Taylor Englert. Together, they made up one of the tightest bands in country music for nearly two decades as Mike and the Moonpies, and they’ll continue to do the same for many more years as Silverada.

The band plans to continue to perform all of the songs from their back catalogue, the same as before, so don’t worry longtime fans… they’re still going to be playing all of their solid country gold at live shows, in addition to stuff from the new album.

Silverada is set to perform an album release show at The Ryman Auditorium on July 5th with Uncle Lucius opening, and the Silverada record is due out everywhere on June 28th.
