Break Video

Dig this amazing new animated video for the song BREAK, from TSB's latest album SHAKE YOUR FAITH.

Video concept, design, and animation by Alexandre Barcelos, who hails from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He was inspired by the lyrics of Break as well as conversations with Steepwater Band members in March, when he traveled with the group for three days on their American tour.

Jeff says the song "Tells the story of someone who doesn't believe they deserve love. Instead they seek attention with poisonous activities. It's no one in particular, but it's someone we all know."

TSB to Release New Album "Shake Your Faith" and Tour Europe in the Spring of 2016

Diamond Day Records is very excited to announce the release of The Steepwater Band’s 6th full-length studio album SHAKE YOUR FAITH.  The LP features 11 brand new TSB tracks, and is slated for release on Friday, April 1st via Double 180 Gram Vinyl, Compact Disc and Digital Download. The album was recorded last winter at Crushtone Studios, in the shadows of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, in Cleveland, Ohio. Shake Your Faith was produced by the band along with seasoned rock studio veteran Jim Wirt, who has also worked with the likes of Fiona Apple, Incubus and the Buffalo Killers. As with most TSB albums, the sound and songwriting on Shake Your Faith has grown and expanded, yet retained the true nature of the band. It’s the first TSB studio record in over 4 years and the first to include “new” guitarist Eric Saylors.

SHAKE YOUR FAITH ALBUM ART BY CHAD WELLSWith the additional band member, the songwriting approach for this record was different than it was on past TSB albums, when they were a 3-piece. Singer/Guitarist Jeff Massey comments on the TSB songwriting process…“Each song was different. I had a few totally finished songs, or Tod would bring a complete piece of music that would need melody & lyrics. And there were also a bunch of other musical ideas coming from both Eric & Joe, which we would all hash out together.” Drummer Joe winters states “Everyone really brought ideas to the table, collaboratively, more so with Shake Your Faith, than with any other of our records. That really created a special vibe around the songs.”

The arctic Lake Erie air made for a secluded and quick session, as it was all recorded and mixed within 12 days.  “What better circumstances to record in?” says Eric Saylors, “There weren’t any outside distractions!” The band entered the studio with a group of songs, but with very loose arrangements. Bassist Tod Bowers elaborates, “It really allowed everyone in the band to be inspired by the moment. Sonically inspired by what sounds you were hearing coming out of the speakers… what was happening in the room, musically between the 4 of us. And you can hear that in the recording.”

Shake Your Faith has a wide range of sounds from straight ahead rock n roll to a psychedelic samba, and lyrical direction that extends from love to murder. This album is the true meaning of just that. An album - a collective piece of music that’s meant to be heard front to back. Saylors adds “The way the whole record flows, it’s like one long song… takes you on a little journey.”

The Songs: Shake Your Faith – Mama Got To Ramble – Be As it May – Break – Bring On The Love – Jealous Of Your Way – I Will Never Know – Walk In The Light  –  Gone Goodbye – Last Second Chance – Ain’t Got Love 

After the release of Shake Your Faith, The Steepwater Band will embark on a lengthy 5 week European Tour that will see over 32 shows in Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Poland and Czech Republic. The band looks forward to jumping back over the pond to their enthusiastic fans that are anxiously awaiting to hear the new TSB music live.

Stayed tuned in the coming weeks for more details on this release, the pre-sale, videos, and a big celebratory weekend of concerts in the band’s hometown of Chicago, as well as Bloomington, IL and Indianapolis, IN.

TSB taking Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out on Tour in Early ’16

After two highly successful Halloween shows where The Steepwater Band performed the classic live album from The Rolling Stones “Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out”, the Chicago based group has decided to take that show on the road.

When picking a group and album for their Halloween shows, singer/guitarist Jeff Massey said “The Stones are a huge influence on our band, and ‘Get Yer Ya-Yas Out’ is complete rock n’ roll. It’s rough around the edges… it’s about attitude, the blues, big guitar riffs… it’s got some Chuck Berry & Robert Johnson, and isn’t too far off from what we do in a Steepwater show anyway.”  Drummer Joseph Winters added “Ya-Ya’s is perfect for this band. That live album in particular has a spirit and element of going to the edge. So we go out and put ourselves on that line. Then that energy of this live show gets traded back and forth between us and the crowd.”

The Steepwater Band decided to take this show on the road to give their fans something different to catch, while a new TSB studio album awaits for release in early April.  “People really reacted to those Halloween shows, especially big Stones fans,” bassist Tod Bowers adds. “We thought this could be something fun to do this winter until the new record drops in the spring. You know, give our fans a little something different than just a typical Steepwater show.”

In addition to performing “Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out” in its entirety, the band also plans to hit songs from their “Diamond Days: Best of TSB 2006-14” album that was released this past March. “It’s really fun to go from playing classic Stones songs like ‘Jumping Jack Flash’, ‘Sympathy for the Devil’ & ‘Midnight Rambler’ to our own Steepwater Band tunes like ‘High and Humble” or ‘Dance Me a Number’,” says guitarist Eric Saylors. ”It’s hard not to notice the similar vibe!”

The first leg of this Winter Tour begins Jan 9th in Indianapolis, Indiana, heads southeast to deep Florida, then back to the Midwest. Please visit www.steepwater.com for ticket info, and a complete listing of the tour, as more shows will be added.

TSB to Get Their Ya-Ya’s Out for Halloween

TSB

With two big shows, The Steepwater Band plans to celebrate Halloween this year by presenting their own version of The Rolling Stones classic live album “Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out!” The shows will take place on back to back evenings, October 30 at House of Blues in Chicago, IL & October 31 at The Castle Theater in Bloomington, IL.  Both headlining appearances, the shows will feature TSB performing the Stones album in its entirety, followed by a short set of original fan favorites, in support of their latest release “Diamond Days ~ The Best of The Steepwater Band 2006 – 2014.”

The idea came about when the band was asked by their new manager Nick Leroy of NTL Productions to take part in his annual Halloween show in Bloomington, IL.  When word of the gig spread amongst the scene of promoters, it became clear that demand would call for an additional performance the same weekend in Steepwater’s hometown of Chicago.  TSB drummer Joe Winters explains, “It’s our way of putting a costume on without actually dressing up.  Musically, we get to become one of our favorite bands for an hour that night!”  Added bassist Tod Bowers, “This is a great record for us to take a stab at because it’s the kind of live recording that captures the energy and spirit of a typical TSB show - gutsy, raw, and imperfect.  It’s gonna be really FUN!”

These special shows will come off the heels of another busy summer for the band which found them criss-crossing America again, as well as recently completing a brand new studio record, expected for release early next year.  On all levels, The Steepwater Band continues to “Get Their Ya-Ya’s Out” through traveling and performing anywhere & everywhere they can…
