Axle Creek, a countrified rock band, announced the release of three new tracks “Figure It Out,” “Changing Course” and “Soldiers’ Sacrifice,” the first three songs from their full-length album, The Journey Home, scheduled for release on December 9, 2014.

“Our goal is to create quality music with a message of substance,” said Bob Carey, songwriter and producer on the project. “Soldiers’ Sacrifice is a good example. Each note, sound and word in the song deals with a subject that we believe deserves more attention.”

The album, The Journey Home, includes ten original compositions that demonstrate the bands versatility as they cross into and out of the rock and country music genres.

Release dates: The Journey Home, Singles Release 1, October 21, 2014; The Journey Home, Singles Release 2, November 18, 2014; The Journey Home, Complete Set, CD, digital album and acoustic versions available December 9, 2014.

The bands roots are founded in rock but are influenced by country and blues throughout the tapestry of the music. Randy Porter’s vocals deliver a texture reminiscent of Bob Seger, Sammy Hagar from AC/DC, and the Zac Brown Band.

Listeners can find previews, free downloads, and purchase Axle Creek’s new songs at the band’s website: Artwork, photos and bios are available in the press section. Pre-sales will be available through standard channels of digital distribution starting with the second release. Follow the band on Twitter at @axlecreek.
