DELTA SPIRIT TO RELEASE NEW RECORD,
HISTORY FROM BELOW, JUNE 8, 2010

NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES CONFIRMED
Rounder Records is excited to announce the release of the new Delta Spirit Record on June 8, 2010. Entitled History From Below, the record was produced by My Morning Jacket's keyboardist Bo Koster and Eli Thomson. History From Below is the follow up to the band's critically acclaimed debut, 2008's Ode to Sunshine, which Spin hailed in its four-out-of-five-star review, saying, "This rousing debut impresses mightily," while Filter called it "pure joy" and Jim Fusilli of the Wall Street Journal said, "I make no pretense of objectivity with Delta Spirit, I love these guys."

"All we wanted to do is put the record together one song at a time," says Delta Spirit's singer/guitarist Matthew Vasquez about History From Below. "It's been three years of straight touring off our last record so most of the songs were written in hotel rooms and tested in front of an audience. We spent spent six months of this last year making a record that sums up three years of growing up."

History From Below was recorded at Prairie Sun Studio C in Cotati, CA -- the same place Tom Waits has recorded almost exclusively since 1991. The record is brimming with incredibly deep and moving songs that are alternately grand and explosive, always eloquent and melodic. It has a powerful energy that radiates musically, lyrically and vocally from the moment you hit play as it finally captures the uncontainable spirit the band exudes on stage.

The track listing for History From Below is:

911
Bushwick Blues
Salt in the wound
White Table
Ransom Man
Devil knows you're dead
Golden state
Scarecrow
Vivian
St. Francis
Ballad of Vitaly
