The Skinny: Tampa, FL band Miggs will release their fifth album, 15th & Hope, on September 11 via the Elm City Music label (EMI distribution). The album’s first single, “Stars,” was released to AAA radio stations nationwide in June as well as a video for the song. A three-week tour, along with Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers, will commence on October 17 in Seattle at Tractor Tavern.

When it came time to record their new album, Miggs turned to legendary producer Phil Ramone (Billy Joel, Paul Simon, Carly Simon, Frank Sinatra). As singer and guitarist Don Miggs commented: “It’s hard to speak about Phil Ramone without first reminding people what the name means: Phil Ramone has 15 Grammy® Awards and about three dozen nominations. He has a Lifetime Grammy award. He is a last remaining icon in an industry quick to announce and quicker to denounce ‘genius,’ and we are the closest thing he’s done to a ‘Rock’ band since Billy Joel. Our experience with Phil was better than I imagined it could be. 15th & Hope doesn’t sound anything like a ‘Phil Ramone’ record. It sounds like a better miggs record and that’s the secret to being Phil.”
