(Evolution) Southerland, the seemingly made for country duo comprised of Matt Chase and Chris Rogers, is slated to release their anticipated six song self-titled EP on April 21st.
The previously unreleased "Three Minutes" and "Ain't For Me" that harken back to the days of early Dierks or a rookie Jason Aldean in stature and promise are the two new tracks on the EP. Packaged together with their four most recent singles "Down The Road," "Underpaid and Overserved," "Ice Cold Country Music" and "World Without You," the EP is a complete picture that showcases both their songwriting depth and performance range. Quite simply - it hits like good country music should. A genuine fit in today's radio world while being built around the same solid framework that's held up decades of country music's best, Southerland is a long hauler that's only getting started.
"This EP is a long time coming," says Southerland. "Since our last collective release we have been working really hard in the writers room and in the studio to capture the magic of who Southerland is and wants to be. We can't wait for fans to hear it. It's one we can truly hang our hat on."
