(Stunt Company) Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors release the swagger filled single "That's On You, That's On Me" backed with the lonesome "Troubles" - as they near the June 7th release of their new full-length studio album Strangers No More. The new double single makes room for barrelhouse piano, slide guitar, and the greasy grit of a juke joint rock band alongside the sweet and weeping sounds of the pedal steel guitar and comes on the heels of the announcement of the band's fall US headline tour.

When asked about "That's On You, That's On Me," Holcomb shared that it's "...a song about the stories we tell ourselves about our lives to make them make sense, the erasure of the line between truth and fiction that we often find ourselves living in, whether we want to admit that or not. I'm old enough to admit that's true about myself." He went on to talk about "Troubles," adding, "This one was a really hard one to write, honestly. I don't know about y'all, but the last few years have been confusing and difficult. This song is about being fed up with all the frustration and division, the pain of being a parent in a world that doesn't seem to care about our kids."

Strangers No More is the ninth full-length studio album for Holcomb and his longtime bandmates Nathan Dugger (guitar), Rich Brinsfield (bass), Will Sayles (drums), and Ian Miller (keys). The LP offers an all-encompassing view not only of the places Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors have been, but where they are headed next, too. From ageless folk music to atmospheric Americana to soulful rock & roll, the album marks an ambitious new chapter in the band's story.

"That's On You, That's On Me" and "Troubles" are the sixth and seventh songs from the forthcoming LP to be released in advance of the album. It follows the joyful rallying cry of lead single "Find Your People," last month's rousing "All The Money In The World," January's finger-picked folk song "Fly," and last fall's two singles - the moving "Gratitude" and celebratory "Dance With Everybody" - both co-written by Holcomb and his good friend Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show. Strangers No More embraces a wider range of topics and textures and the themes are more universal. Holcomb approached songwriting for the new album very intentionally, "We wanted to be more ambitious with our sound and get the audience on its feet when we play these songs live, without turning our back on the singer/songwriter fans," he said.

They'll get the opportunity to do just that in the months ahead starting with several June dates including a performance at this year's Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival on June 18th and then a massive summer tour as direct support for Darius Rucker. In addition, the band just announced a fall US headline run that has them out through the end of October. All confirmed dates are below and look for more to be announced soon!
