Modern Day Moonshine is staying busy by attacking the Americana radio airwaves. Their first single, “Don’t Waste”, has been picked up by a number of stations across the U.S. and Europe, and even topping the charts on several stations, including #52 on WMSV’s Top 100 (Mississippi State University), #169 on RadioFreeAmericana, and #3 on Wildman Steve’s Top 65. Of further note, many stations in the Netherlands have requested the song for rotation and we should be seeing reports coming along in the near future.
The first tracks from Modern Day Moonshine’s Bootleggers Club will be made available this week. Spread across the bands' newly redesigned website and social media, the project allows "MDM Bootleggers" to access a new song every Tuesday. With a catalogue of songs reaching well into the hundreds, the streaming mp3's will range from demos and live performances to previously unreleased studio tracks, and will feature exclusive photos and updates from the band. Fans will be polled each month to choose their favorite tracks, with the winners being compiled into a special edition “Bootlegger Album” that will be available as a download only.
And we just got a report that Modern Day Moonshine's Refuge album landed at #22 on the WALW-FM radio station . . . they're tucked neatly between Black Crowes, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, and Gov't Mule! Now that's a cup of alright!
We've also learned that Modern Day Moonshine has crashed the National Charts, breaking into the top 300 nationally for roots/Americana!
