Joe Pug Announces New LP

Nation of Heat Records and celebrated singer-songwriter Joe Pug are excited to announce the Friday, July 22 release of Nation of Heat | Revisited, a reimagined, full-band version of his acclaimed 2008 debut . Featuring contributions by Brandon Flowers (The Killers), Derry deBorja (Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit), Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket) and Courtney Hartman, the collection is a set of songs that have earned themselves a passionate following over the years but are given the proper treatment here that Pug had originally intended for them.

Revisiting and reinterpreting these songs from a place of experience and perspective, Nation of Heat | Revisited sounds livelier, rowdier, punchier, but also more sophisticated, headier. “It’s how I would’ve wanted the record to sound in the first place if I’d had the money and the ability to do it this way,” Pug says. “But I knew this album couldn’t just be the original songs with a bar band behind me as I played an acoustic guitar. I didn’t want to just add a rhythm section. It had to be a complete reimagining.”
