Just announced: The Magpie Salute's first studio album, High Water I, will be available--worldwide--on August 10th. Their style, an intriguing mix of hard, southern, gritty and bluesy rock and beautiful melodies... take a listen to the first single from the album:
The Magpie Salute will be on tour throughout the USA and Canada this summer, including festival dates in Thunder Bay, Ontario at Thunder Bay Blues Festival, Fredericton, New Brunswick's Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival, and Louisville Kentucky's Bourbon and Beyond (which is right before Louder Than Life... more on that later.)

And such a cool name for a band... there's an explanation in this interview.
