Tim McBride & The Divide to release debut album at Slim’s Last Chance on August 10th
Seattle roots rockers Tim McBride & The Divide are releasing their debut album at Slim’s Last Chance on 8/10/2018. The album is a rock n’ roll synthesis of many influences that falls somewhere between early Stiff Records artists (e.g. Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello) and good old American rock and roll (e.g. The Blasters and Tom Petty). Tim McBride & The Divide was recorded at Seattle’s Earwig Studio by Don Farwell and Mastered by Levi Seitz at Black Belt Mastering in Seattle. The band features members of Seattle local favorites The Snubs, Ol Doris, and Pampa.
Over the years Tim’s engaging and urgent performance style paired with memorable (and thoughtful) songwriting have garnered his bands critical praise. From Hook and The Daggers This is Ballroom Thrash (2005) receiving positive reviews in Maximum Rock and Roll, AMP, Razorcake, Punknews.org, Nerve, SeattlePunk.Net, etc. to Warning Track being voted Weekly Volcano’s Best of Olympia Punk Band 2012. More recently, In 2015 The Snubs were featured on Seattle’s KEXP radio Music That Matters Podcast #472 and their debut LP 2016’s The Snubs listed on KEXP DJ Brian Foss’s Top Ten List Spotlight.
In over twenty years of creating and performing music, Tim has always done whatever it was that he felt like doing, eschewing trends or sticking with one “brand” in favor of a musical exploration that continues to evolve to this day. This latest album, 2018’s Tim McBride & The Divide is the finest example of that evolution to date. For the release show, Tim McBride & The Divide will be joined by the eclectic Americana stylings of Seattle’s Vito & The One-Eyed Jacks & Kyle Latham (of Ol Doris).
