The Skinny: Midnight Masses, the band of Autry Fulbright (accompanied by Jason Reece) from …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, recently announced their debut album Departures for release on the 21st July 2014 in Europe and July 22nd 2014 in the US. They are now proud to premiere the first track to be taken from the album titled “Am I A Nomad?”, and you can stream it just below.

Autry had this to say about the song: “The album chronicles moments out of a whole ‘day’, from sunrise to midnight. ‘Am I A Nomad?’ takes place mid-morning, and was written towards the end of an international tour. At the time I was reflecting on how life as a touring musician is a nomadic one; and how I often feel more comfortable on the road than stationary. It’s a feeling I’ve had my whole life. I’ve never felt at home anywhere. I’m starting to think I feel most at home constantly traveling everywhere.”

The album features contributions from some very notable guests, including Haley Dekle (Dirty Projectors), Isaiah “Ikey” Owens (The Mars Volta), Peter Hale (Here We Go Magic), Ian Longwell (Santigold), Jaleel Bunton (TV On The Radio), Mauro Refosco (Atoms For Peace) & Jamie Miller (…Trail of Dead).
