Go To West Texas with Sleepercar

(PR) Jim Ward's Sleepercar will take you to West Texas on April 22nd when the new album hits stores. Appropriate to the album's title, the band is currently touring West Texas before taking off for Canada in May.

The first song conceived for West Texas originated in a moment of solitude while Jim Ward was waiting to soundcheck on what turned out to be the last At The Drive-In tour. Fast forward seven years, and Ward is set to release a full length album chock full of Americana rock inspired by all things West Texas and influenced by the likes of the Old 97's, Tom Petty, and Bruce Springsteen.

West Texas has a lot of strength and expansive depth, creating a sprawling, beautiful sound. From the opening notes of "A Broken Promise," to the echoed chords of "Wasting My Time," Sleepercar's West Texas reflects the environment of its birth. From the soft vocal wave to the pulse-racing conviction of songs like the dynamic "Wednesday Nights" we hear all sides of what Ward is capable of. "West Texas is my home, my land and my soul" says Ward.
