Battle Hymns, comprised of Cameron Elliott, Jack Peters, Jeremy Wingfield and Barry Uhl, draw from the same songwriting wells as Tom Petty, David Berman and Bill Callahan, while simultaneously dredging the darker, noisier depths of rock and roll. Hidden Reservations, their first endeavor, explores how those things we keep buried beneath the surface inevitably effect our lives and community. Recorded over the course of a year in various houses, a work garage, and the world renowned Studio X, it was tracked with help from friends Nick Peterson (Pedro the Lion, Headphones, Fleet Foxes), Andrew Rudd (Aqueduct), Justin Wilmore (The Prom, Aqueduct), and engineered by Kory Kruckenburg. Hidden Reservations captures the sound of a country crumbling under its own weight; offering protest against apathy and hopelessness, sung for those not quite ready to succumb. It chronicles a band reaching toward something bigger then itself, maybe even beyond itself, but still striving nonetheless. In the process, Battle Hymns have created an album worth believing in, long after the tyranny of style has changed its fickle mind.
