    THE SEATTLE-BASED COSMIC-COUNTRY BAND HYWAYS TO RELEASE THEIR SELF-TITLED DEBUT STUDIO ALBUM ON RECORD STORE DAY, APRIL 21ST, ON VINYL, CD, DIGITAL & STREAMING FORMATS VIA UNION ZERO

    HYWAYS is the new Seattle project led by singer-songwriter Mike Giacolino featuring an all-star line up with members of Son Volt, Sera Cahoone and Rose Windows.

    Their new self-titled debut album pushes the boundaries of genres by seamlessly mixing country and psychedelia with indie rock, folk and prog rock.
    HYWAYS nebula formed three years ago when Nils Petersen and Pat Schowe of Rose Windows reconnected with troubadour Mike Giacolino and pedal steel guitar wiz Jay Kardong.

    The four longtime friends and collaborators raised HYWAYS from the ashes of their former band Ole Tinder. Moving from a more traditional alt-country sound to the spacey, psychedelic, cosmic country-rock you hear today.

    The evolution began when the band headed into the studio with producer Randall Dunn to create their debut album. Randall helped them find and create the lush, shimmery soundscape that has become HYWAYS.

    HYWAYS are
    Mike Giacolino – Lead Vocal, Guitar, Harmonica
    Nils Petersen – Bass, Keys, Backing Vocal
    Jay Kardong – Pedal Steel, Electric Guitar, Backing Vocal
    Pat Schowe – Drums, Percussion, Backing Vocal
