Taproot has announced its much-anticipated third album, BLUE-SKY RESEARCH, will arrive in stores on August 16th. Produced by Toby Wright (who helmed Taproot's critically praised 'WELCOME'), BLUE-SKY RESEARCH sees the Ann Arbor-based quartet continuing their musical exploration of hard rock's many textures. The album showcases Taproot's gifts for inventive melodies and thought-provoking lyricism, as is evident in the album's first single, 'Calling.' The album features a collaboration between the band and artists like Billy Corgan, who shares credit on three of the album's most intriguing songs: 'Lost In The Woods,' 'Violent Seas,' and 'Promise.' Overall, the album displays Taproot's consistently remarkable artistic growth.
'Calling' is already making huge waves on rock radio stations across the country. The video for the track, directed by Moh Azima, was recently shot in Los Angeles.
Considered one of today's most striking live acts, Taproot will spend the summer on the road. They're slated to join forces with Chevelle for a major U.S. tour. The trek kicks off on July 9th in Indianapolis, and also features support from 30 Seconds to Mars.
