The Great Divide‘ is the first single taken from the band’s upcoming album ‘All For The Song‘ and sees the band continuing down a path paved with bluegrass templates with a rock and roll twist – as band member John Skehan puts it “We walk on either side of a line.  The bluegrass influence is primarily in instrumentation—having a banjo, fiddle, mandolin, upright bass, and guitar – but it’s still a rock band.
