    Virginia-based rock band Sons of Bill will release their new album Sirens on March 27. This powerful collection of guitar-driven rock songs and reflective alt-country was produced by long-time fan, and fellow Virginian, David Lowery (Cracker, Camper Van Beethoven).

    To get fans excited, Sons of Bill released new song "Santa Ana Winds," a haunting tale set to a fury of piano and power chords, for free download. Download "Santa Ana Winds" here here.

    Led by brothers James, Sam and Abe Wilson along with Seth Green and Todd Wellons, Sons of Bill is a band that sounds like where they're from - somewhere south of Bruce Springsteen's rock and roll desperation, but slightly north of their alt-country contemporaries.

    From the driving country twang of "Find My Way Back Home" to the strikingly beautiful "Angry Eyes," from the anthemic striving of "Siren Song," to the tortured but hopeful "Virginia Calling," SIRENS' centers on the tension between alienation and belonging in the modern world, resulting in a memorable collection of songs and the band's best work to date.
