The Cadillac Three have announced the imminent release of their fifth studio album.

The Nashville southern-rock trio took to social media to reveal that 'Tabasco & Sweet Tea' will land via Big Machine Records this Friday (October 23), following up 'Country Fuzz', which dropped earlier in 2020. Head below to check out its artwork. 

Described in a press release as "a time capsule of the band's history", the LP expands on the sounds the group explored on its predecessor. Discussing the creative process behind it, drummer Neil Mason said:

"As we finished the last record, we knew we were only tapping the surface with songs like The Jam for where we could go next musically and found ourselves inspired to dive into these sounds that we had never explored before as a band.

"We've always had a lot of influences, but ultimately found ourselves thinking about what we were listening to in high school -- The Meters, Stevie Wonder, Medeski Martin and Wood and John Scofield."

Singer and guitarist Jaren Johnston added: "This album is a science project… constantly moving in different directions but keeping one cohesive feel throughout. We kind of have this innate thing going after all these years so it was cool to kind of stretch into some new musical spaces with elements of a DJ set that flows from track to track, but mixed with 80’s funk vibes and jam-band flow over hardcore country lyrics."

The band will release 'Tabasco & Sweet Tea' at a reduced price for the first week, making it more accessible for fans struggling during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

"We wouldn't be where we are without our fans," explained bassist Kelby Ray. "We lost the ability to tour and know many of our fans have also lost their ability to work consistently this year so we wanted to find a way to provide this album as cost effectively as we could. Our hope is that everyone who wants 'Tabasco & Sweet Tea' can get it without breaking the bank."

They'll perform new songs during a livestream show on October 27, broadcasting in North America at 7pm CT and the UK at 6pm GMT. Head here for details.
