Pre-sale orders begin for new Ha Ha Tonka album


HaHaTonka AlbumWith just a little less than two weeks to go until indie-roots-rock act Ha Ha Tonka drops its new album, Novel Sounds of the Nouveau South, on Bloodshot Records–it’s due for release June 16–the label is now taking pre-orders for the CD with a few special goodies thrown in at no extra cost. According to a new blog by the band, purchasing the album now on the Bloodshot Records website will get you a poster and buttons for the same cost you’ll pay for the CD alone when it comes out in a couple of weeks.

The album, apparently, is a take on the local-literature classic The Shepherd of the Hills combined with modern social commentary and includes such super-local song titles as “What Shepherds of These Hills?” and “Walking On the Devil’s Backbone,” a reference to part of the Mark Twain National Forest near Willow Springs. The guys may call a tour bus and suitcase home, but they certainly haven’t forgotten where they’re from.
