This February The Delta Routine will be releasing their fourth full-length album, You And Your Lion.  While this effort follows a similar path laid out on their last acclaimed album Cigarettes & Caffeine Nightmares – incorporating elements of garage, power-pop, punk and classic rock – the Milwaukee foursome also add a more rough-hewn Americana undertone to the mix. This decidedly rootsier approach was influenced, in part, by the band’s heavy tour schedule, which as frontman Nick Amadeus admits, “The last year and a half of touring has been pretty important to me… getting to see a ton of the Midwest and East Coast, going into the mountains and seeing Colorado for the first time. Seeing Austin and Texas for the first time, first trip to New Orleans, first time playing Nashville, etc. I think all of that stuff really helped shape the direction of the new album. It’s also probably my closest thing to a travel album. I wrote a good majority of the lyrics on the road and that shows up a lot on this record.”

The Delta Routine’s You And Your Lion was recorded at the Factory in Chicago and co-produced by bandmembers Mike Hoffmann and Nick Amadeus.  It will be available February 17th in both CD and digital formats.

“I’ve lived in a variety of places — Chicago, New York, Knoxville, Tenn. — and it’s rare I find music that reminds me of all of them. An exception: The Delta Routine. The Milwaukee-based group is set to release its fourth album, and I think it’s a standout, particularly because it blends old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll with the rootsy sounds you often find down South. Fellow fans of Americana music should check ’em out.”  – USA TODAY

“Milwaukee’s Delta Routine can rock the blues and deliver grade-A hooks just as well as any of its contemporaries. It’s no wonder they’ve been receiving plenty of accolades…”– MAGNET MAGAZINE

 “The Delta Routine is exemplary rock ’n’ roll with overtones of Mott the Hoople and The Rolling Stones circa “Downtown Suzie.” This is a band in control, and all the more rocking for it.” – NASHVILLE SCENE

“The Delta Routine serve up eleven tracks with full-realized hooks and maximum swagger, that are as gritty as they are sexy. I suggest that The Black Keys should watch their backs if these guys ever get into the music licensing game, because these fuzzy, guitar-centric ditties are poised and ready for primetime.” – GHETTOBLASTER MAGAZINE

“Influenced by the Stooges, the Stones, Kings of Leon, the Ramones and Robert Johnson, Milwaukee’s The Delta Routine is built upon the raw elements of guitar-driven rock. Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Nick Amadeus creates memorable hooks and quirky riffs all while paying homage to the old days of rock & roll.” – THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER

“On its third full-length album, Cigarettes & Caffeine Nightmares, the band serves up 11 fat-free slices of hooky, slithery, and perfectly pitched tunes that wouldn’t be out of place in the early ’00s—or the ’70s that inspired those early ’00s. It’s an unabashedly enjoyable collection from one of Milwaukee’s most unabashedly populist bands. Cigarettes & Caffeine is a big step up from 2011’s More About You, and finds The Delta Routine up to its ears in songs exceedingly well-crafted.” –  THE  A.V.CLUB

“The Delta Routine ups the ante on their new full-length Cigarettes & Caffeine Nightmares, an album that finds the band hitting their stride like never before.” –  SHEPHERD EXPRESS

“‘I won’t waste your time now,’ Delta Routine frontman Nick Amadeus sings with his Liam Gallagher-esque vocals on the opening track. He’s true to his word. At 32 minutes, the album is mercifully low on fat but thrills all the same with warped organ and guitar reverb snarls on ‘Switchblade.’ Likewise, ‘Around Your Neck’ does its bluesy, White Stripes-like, swagger-soaked thing in less than two minutes’ time.”  –  MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL

“… sounds like early Oasis, but with a definite Midwest vibe.” – 88NINE RADIO MILWAUKEE

“Down-and-dirty barroom blues/rock.” – WHEN YOU MOTOR AWAY

“Think late ‘60s, ‘70s rock ‘n’ roll (Bolan and Stones)… Cigarettes & Caffeine Nightmares is worth adding to your collection” – MUSIC EYES: UK
