Will Hoge to release new album “The Wreckage”


the-wreckage-extralarge_1252702010092Will Hoge is back and has elevated his rugged guitar, prolific songwriting and powerful voice to new heights with ‘The Wreckage.’ The album, wrought with emotion, is Hoge’s first since 2007’s acclaimed ‘Draw the Curtains’ and the tragic traffic accident that threatened his life and career. With a recent, stellar performance of the album’s first single “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” on the CBS Saturday Early Show, ‘The Wreckage’ is set to be Hoge’s most successful release to date.

In 2008 Hoge’s career was abruptly put on hiatus when his scooter was struck by another vehicle en route from a day of recording at Nashville’s Sound Emporium Studios. The singer’s multiple injuries left him near death. After 8 months of intense physical rehabilitation, Hoge once again picked up his guitar and finished the album. “You kind of fall in love again with the whole process of writing and playing,” Hoge said during a recent interview in the Tennessean.

‘The Wreckage’ caps Hoge’s remarkable journey back to a full time performer who routinely plays 200 + shows a year. The new album was crafted with a depth of sound and musicality that undeniably breaks new ground for Hoge.

Hoge has confirmed U.S. tour dates through November with more to be announced soon.
