Sarah Shook & the Disarmers Sign to Thirty Tigers

Sarah Shook and the Disarmers are the hard-charging badasses of punk-inspired country music, and their last record from 2018 called Years ended up being named the Saving Country Music Album of the Year. Ever since then we’ve been anticipating the followup from the North Carolina-based country music goddess and her cohorts.

Unfortunately though, seeing how Sarah and the Disarmers were previously signed to Bloodshot Records, and the label continues to through a slow-moving semi-implosion that has the Chicago outfit going silent for months now with much uncertainty moving forward, it left a big question mark of when new music from Sarah Shook may arrive.

Luckily though, Ganesha the Remover of Obstacles or some other cosmic force got involved, and Sarah Shook and the Disarmers have been absolved of whatever Bloodshot obligations remained outstanding, and have found a new home on Thirty Tigers. Announced by Sarah late Tuesday (6/8), she will be taking her music to the Nashville-based distribution company that allows artists to retain and control their own music, while still getting the muscle of a traditional label.

“I was a fan of their debut album ‘Sidelong’ from the first time I heard it, and they just keep getting better,” Thirty Tigers owner David Macias tells Saving Country Music. “Sarah Shook and the Disarmers have such as strong voice, in all ways that implies, and I can’t wait for the world to hear their new music. It’s really fucking great.”

Sarah Shook said as far back as October of 2018 that she was rehearsing for a new album, and word is it will finally be coming at some point in early 2022 when everything can be pointed in the right direction. Sarah has also been hinting that she might have some sort of rock side project in the works as well, so stay tuned for that.

More info when it becomes available.
