Featuring singer/songwriter Trevor Hall, “This Place” forms the emotional core of the band’s new album, in which frontman Drew McManus is found reconnecting with his Montana roots and exploring a whole new palette of sounds, inspired by the wide-open fields and soaring mountains of their home state. While the album is rooted in the land, “This Place” looks beyond the physical to a more spiritual definition of home. “This song is about that ethereal place that we can tap into through music,” explains McManus. “It’s not here or there – it’s past that. I believe it’s tapping into the place we come from before birth, and return to after our time here. The only brother I would have had sing on something this deep is Trevor. He is a true sage. I hope you enjoy this offering from us and Trevor.”
