Souls Harbor
Dear Enemy
Saint Diablo
Friday, January 9th
Rolling Stone hailed them as "contenders" and Vanity Fair called them "ones to watch." They've shared stages with the likes of Linkin Park and Queens of the Stone Age, blanketed the airwaves with hook-laden rock radio hits and saw all three of their albums (2000’s Gift, 2002’s Welcome, 2005’s Blue Sky Research) chart within the top 35 on Billboard’s Top 200. We're talking of course about Ann Arbor, MI-based quartet TAPROOT, who have returned with their first album in three years—the highly anticipated OUR LONG ROAD HOME.
