FAIR TO MIDLAND: New Webisode Available

Texas natives FAIR TO MIDLAND have released a webisode entitled "'Musical Chairs' Behind The Scenes" to give fans an inside look on their newest single. Check it out below.

FAIR TO MIDLAND will release its new full-length album, "Arrows And Anchors", on June 14 via eOne Music. The follow-up to 2007's "Fables From A Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times Is True" was produced by Joe Barresi, who has previously worked with TOOL, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and COHEED AND CAMBRIA, among others.

"We're all huge fans of what Barresi did with QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE. We wanted a stellar rock producer and were lucky enough to find one who has managed to find the happy medium between polish and performance," said FAIR TO MIDLAND frontman Darroh Sudderth.

The first single off the new record, "Musical Chairs", is streaming exclusively at ArtistDirect.com.

"We are a band that makes albums and this is the best one that we've ever made. It might be the heaviest non-metal album you will hear this year," Sudderth added.

Not wanting to sit still, FAIR TO MIDLAND recently embarked on a month-long headline tour with support from PERIPHERY and SCALE THE SUMMIT. The tour has spanned coast to coast, with roughly ten shows remaining.

Founded in 1998 in the quiet farm town of Sulphur Springs, Texas, FAIR TO MIDLAND quickly became one of the Lone Star State's fastest-rising bands, earning critical acclaim for their first two independent releases, 2001's "The Carbon Copy Silver Lining" and 2004's "inter.funda.stifle".

Since the release of "Fables From a Mayfly", they have shared the stage with bands such as THE SMASHING PUMPKINS, FLYLEAF, CHEVELLE, DIR EN GREY, ALICE IN CHAINS, and SERJ TANKIAN throughout the U.S. and Europe. The band has made appearances at festivals such as Coachella, Bamboozle, Download, Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park.

FAIR TO MIDLAND is Darroh Sudderth (vocals), Cliff Campbell (guitar), Brett Stowers (drums), Matt Langley (keyboards) and Jon Dicken (bass).
