Howlin Rain has announced the upcoming release of Mansion Songs, a new record due out January 27th, 2015 via Easy Sound. The record finds the band’s frontman/songwriter/lead guitarist Ethan Miller heading out on his own, and starting anew. See the track-list below and listen to the first single ‘Big Red Moon’, which premiered via NOISEY.

“I walked out of the back end of my major label run and the first 9 years in Howlin Rain with no band, no label, no foreseeable immediate move forward and a figurative suitcase full of songs, my talent, invigorated by having nothing else to lose, exhausted by the bullshit and grind of the music business, this musical life, and all it’s absolute bullshit and fucked tests, cynical but not bitter. I still wanted to make more records. I wanted to track the journey from nothingness back to creation in musical form in a set of three albums and rock bottom was the perfect place to start from. There’s nothing to fake down here! It’s a dark and beautiful and pure cave to create something truthful from. The first album in the trilogy is Mansion Songs.”
