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.

Taproot’s newest release Our Long Road Home is a totally natural progression from their previous releases. The disc seems to be more focused, more melodic and a bit heavier than anything the band has written before, and is a sort of non-stop ride that is a culmination of their musical talent.
