Ben Daniels Band Releases New Album at Sonic Lunch Tomorrow

Chelsea's Ben Daniels Band releases its newest album Travelusive tomorrow (i.e. June 30) during the group's first appearance at Bank of Ann Arbor's Sonic Lunch. The band starts belting its signature Americana sounds at noon

Though the album drops tomorrow, frontman Ben Daniels said he came up with the album's title nearly half a decade ago. "I just hid it in a notebook and forgot about it."

Daniels's coining of Travelusive as a new word speaks to more than simply touring the American West last fall with his father [actor and Purple Rose Theater progenitor Jeff Daniels]. "It's also kind of about our society these days where people like their privacy but they also like to show where they are every second," Ben said. "It's kind of a two-way street." 

Recorded at Chelsea's 2188 Studio with Ben as its audio engineer, Travelusive​ is a homegrown testament to the town that served as a haven for the Ben Daniels Band's development. "There are just a couple places to play it's got this good community feeling about it," Ben said. For example: "When we play the Chelsea Sounds & Sights Festival at the end of July, the greenroom of the stage we play on is across the street on my grandma's front porch." 

Two tracks from the album, "Burn A Barn" and "Salt Water Skin," are already available online. Fans can grab the physical album on CD. 

Bank of Ann Arbor's Sonic Lunch, Liberty Plaza, noon-1:00pm, free
