Nashville, TN, July, 2020 – Nashville rock stalwarts Benchmarks announced their new album Summer, Slowly with the release of their first A side B side single “Our Finest Hour” and “Technicolor.” The album will be available digitally August 21, 2020.
"Our upcoming record represents, perhaps, the best version of this band. It’s certainly the most fun and creatively satisfying piece of music I’ve ever been a part of. The making of this record has also seen several job changes, one marriage, three new kids, two new band members, a lot of road miles, and countless late nights in the studio. We truly put our heart and soul into it,” Todd Farrell Jr. says.
For those unfamiliar with Benchmarks or primary singer songwriter, Todd Farrell Jr, the band has previously released American Night and Our Undivided Attention (Sofaburn). Todd also spent several years as the touring guitarist for Columbus, Ohio, band Two Cow Garage. The band has toured and shared the stage with such notable acts Sammy Kay, Bud Bronson and the Good Timers, Iron Chic, Lucero, Restorations, Timeshares, John Moreland, Mike Vallely, Lydia Loveless, Frank Turner, and Austin Lucas. Publications such as New Noise, No Depression, Pop Matters, Ghettoblaster have all lauded the band.
