Wrapping up Idaho

trackingidaho

Hey everybody! We're still alive and working to finish up the next EP in the Tri-State Series -- Idaho! Once electric guitars are tracked, we'll go over a few odds and ends to get this thing mixed, mastered, and released to the masses.

We're really proud of what we've gotten done on it so far and can't wait for you to hear it! As Matt is the member of the band from Idaho, he had a big hand in helping us craft the sound that he thinks embodies the stark (I really wanted to say starch) contrasts of the mountains, lakes, and deserts found in the potato capital of America. That's not to say pinpointing a direction for Idaho didn't have its challenges (its borders do not contain the blues and/or country music metropolises of Memphis and/or Nashville), but the Gem State still provided lots of inspiration to work with. 

Still wondering what Idaho has to offer? Here are some fun facts from Matt:

+ Idaho has more rivers than any other state
+ 38% of the state is covered in forests, more than any other state
+ Shoshone Falls, located in Idaho, are taller than Niagara Falls
+ Evil Knievel once attempted to jump Hell's Canyon
+ The Television was invented in Idaho
+ The Idaho Capitol Building is heated by geothermal water (hawt)
+ Wallace, Idaho, a town of less than 800 people, once declared itself the center of the Universe.

So there you have it! Idaho has a lot to offer. If you've been to any shows semi-recently, you've probably heard the songs that will be on the album. The track listing looks something like this:

- Turn on the Light
- Pay Day
- Morning Light
- Idaho (Instrumental)
- Closing Doors
- Earth's Not Singing

That's it for now! We look forward to finishing this up and hearing what you think! Feel free to hit us up on the socials and let us know how you're doing! I'll do better updating the blog here too. Thanks y'all!

The Tennessee EP is here at last!

Well, it's been a couple months since my last post, but, as the title implies, the Tri-State Series Volume 1: Tennessee is finally here! After months of production, we're glad to say that we are very proud of this project! If you haven't gotten a chance to hear it yet, head over to our Bandcamp page and give it a listen. If you like what you hear, support us with a couple bucks and download the album.

A lot of people have been asking when the album is going to be available on iTunes. We're currently in the process of having the album put on iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby and getting a couple physical CDs printed as well. If you're holding out for CDs, let us know and we'll save you one!

Also, I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who has posted and shared about this album! Without your help and kindness, we would not have been able to get the word out about the EP. We're looking forward to recording the next two Volumes, Idaho and Ohio, in the coming months! We'll keep you posted on the progress and any upcoming shows we have booked.

Again, thank you all for the support and for the good words you've been giving us! If y'all have any suggestions or comments, feel free to give us a shout on Facebook!

The Tennessee EP is in the works...

Hey all! Welcome to the brand new Zach Wolfe & the Coyotes website and blog! These are exciting times in the life of the band and we're thrilled to share it with you through our new technological digs.

So.... what's exciting? I'm glad you asked! We are planning on releasing three EPs in the coming year based on the states that we're from: Tennessee, Idaho, and Ohio. All of these EPs will contain that same ZW&C signature sound you know and love, but with a little bit of personality of its own. Once combined, they will be known as.... The Tri-State Series.
 

We hope to have Tennessee released around the beginning of May, and will keep you updated on our progress. 

We love you all!
