The Skinny: Our Long Road Home was released on September 16, 2008 and distributed in a cardboard sleeve and released to all major outlets. In September the band announced that long-time drummer Jarrod Montague would be sitting out during this touring cycle. Replacing him is good friend Nick Fredell, drummer for Flint, MI band Proximo.
“Wherever I Stand”, the lead single for Our Long Road Home, has a video out now which can be found on Youtube. In Spring 2009, Taproot went on the road with Dear Enemy and Adakain for the Take It! tour. Later that year, they co-headlined a U.S. tour with Cold, in addition to releasing the following statement: “Taproot has a few upcoming shows in November and December and will start writing their new record in January/February of 2010. We hope to get into the studio sometime in February and March. We will be looking at a release date sometime in the late spring possibly early summer of 2010!
