Shulertown to release ‘Free Range’ album at George’s

When we last talked to Fayetteville band Shulertown, we were kind of blown away by their diverse range of musical influences. Come this Friday, we’ll finally get to find out what a “western-adult-rock-with-carribean-folk-dark-country-rock-ska-grass” record sounds like.

The band is set to release their debut album, (appropriately titled) Free Range on Friday, March 18 at George’s Majestic Lounge.

The album is entirely self-recorded and self-produced, and according to Jason Reddecliff (guitar, vocals), the 12-song record is a reflection of the band’s eclectic tastes.

“One song will have a bluegrass feel or a ska feel, and then you’ll have one that’s straight up alt-country or cow punk,” he said. “Some of them have a mix of everything. They all end up rocking at one point or another, though.”

Reddecliff said he’s eager for the public to hear the record, which has been finished since late 2010.

The show on Friday kicks off at around 9 p.m. with locals Jr. Soapbox. Shulertown will take the stage at around 10 p.m., and Flipoff Pirates are set to close out the night. Cover is $6.

Those who can’t make it Friday night can get their hands on Free Range at several local record stores, or download it at iTunes, CDBaby, or DigStation.
