Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors Headlining The Hawthorn in St Louis, MO on April 19th

Last week, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors released their first new single of 2024 with the Southern Rock scorcher “Suffering” listen via your preferred DSP HERE. When asked about their sonic shift on this latest single Holcomb shared, “One of our guiding principles when we recorded the 21 songs of Strangers No More was to let the song tell us how to record it. What that means is not to let past recording habits and sonic choices dictate how we record these new songs. I wrote this song from the well of all my love of rock n roll. It’s a stanza song telling the story of people lost in their circumstances, which we as humans often have so little control of. We all suffer, it’s a part of the deal, and singing it as loud as I can in the bullet of a rock song makes it feel like we are all in this together. Here is one of my favorite recordings we have ever made. We give you…‘Suffering.’”

The single arrived ahead of the band’s US headline tour that hits most every major city throughout the US, kicking off on April 3rd in Lexington, KY and wrapping with two nights at The Ryman in their home base of Nashville, TN. “Suffering” also follows December’s “Way Back When” single – a stirring ballad that pulled on the heartstrings of anyone who heard it. These two new songs follow the June 2023 release of the band’s ninth full-length studio album Strangers No More – listen HERE – that led to their first #1 Americana single with “Find Your People.” In addition, album track “Dance With Everybody” is having a moment right now thanks to the NCAA March Madness TV Commercial, which you can check out HERE (who knew Charles Barkley had such moves!) and catch anytime you might be watching these games live on TV on TBSCBSTNT and truTV.

It has been a banner year for Holcomb and his band who just last month gave “Find Your People” its late-night TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! This follows the band’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade debut on November 23rd performing “Find Your People” on the Igniting Memories Solo Stove float. In July they returned to CBS Saturday Morning to perform “Find Your People” along with “All the Money in the World” and “Fly,” and they made their first ever appearance on Live with Kelly & Mark on October 3rd, returning to the show in December to perform “Dance With Everybody.” On the live front, the band returned to Bonnaroo on June 18th, spent the summer on the road as direct support for Darius Rucker, and spent the fall both headlining and supporting The Head and The Heart. In addition, Holcomb did a solo tour of Europe in January 2024 making a stop to perform at the Americana Music Association UK Awards, and outside of their annual Neighborly Christmas Shows, Drew and his wife Ellie Holcomb spent February on the road together for their Feels Like Home tour.

On top of all that Strangers No More earned Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors an Americana Music Association UK nomination for “International Album of the Year” alongside Allison Russell’s The Returner and Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit’s Weathervanes and saw the band gaining more than 5 MILLION new listeners on Spotify alone. Holcomb celebrates community, collaboration, and his love for contemporary American Roots music with his longtime bandmates – Nathan Dugger (guitar), Rich Brinsfield (bass), Will Sayles (drums), and Ian Miller (keys) on the new LP and it has resonated.
