The Easthills featuring Doug Gillard release new song & video: Mother & Fools
(INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Nov. 17, 2015) The new single and accompanying video from Indiana-based rock band The Easthills is now available. “Mothers & Fools” features a special guest appearance by renowned indie rock guitarist Doug Gillard. The song is available now for digital download exclusively through TheEasthills.com and CD Baby, and will be included on The Easthills’ forthcoming full-length sophomore album Fear and Temptation, due out in 2016. The song will also be available via all other major digital platforms soon.
Fear and Temptation follows the band’s critically acclaimed 2013 full-length debut album Death of a Salesman and the 2014 four-song EP World Class Prick. The new album promises another dose of indie-pop-rock-meets-classic-rock, special guests in addition to Gillard, and a new sense of urgency for a band ready for the next chapter. Additional singles will continue to be released digitally in the coming months prior to the album’s release. The full-length album will be available in both digital and CD formats upon release.
