#18 on the Freeform American Roots chart for January 2016

Ranked #2 in The Triangle’s 25 best albums of 2015 by The Independent Weekly

“Her sound is a sneering fusion of punk-rock autonomy and say-it-like-it-is country from the classic era, paired with a timeless vocal warble and tons of attitude. Honest to a fault and as foul-mouthed as a drunken sailor, she’s a nonconforming spitfire” ~ Rolling Stone

“Sarah Shook & the Disarmers are creating a special brand of country music. It’s raw and unique yet fans of the genre will feel right at home. All of the typical, hard-country adjectives apply: edgy, gritty, dark, whiskey-soaked, restless. But they don’t do the band justice.” ~ Auntie Bellum Magazine

Sarah Shook & the Disarmers is an old school outlaw country/Americana band with punk tendencies. They are known for killer lyrics and the amazing musicianship of the Disarmers – backing up Sarah’s plaintive vocals are lead guitarist Eric Peterson (Flat Duo Jets, the dB’s, Matthew Sweet, more); country punk drummer John Howie Jr. (Two Dollar Pistols, John Howie & the Rosewood Bluff); stand up bass player Aaron Oliva (Caitlyn Cary, Nikki Lane); and incomparable pedal steel guitarist Phil Sullivan.
