The Easthills are rounding out 2015 recording the 2016 follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2013 debut full-length album “Death of a Salesman” and the 2014 EP “World Class Prick”. Once again, producer Doug Henthorn (Healing Sixes, Jason Bonham, Joe Bonamassa) is at the helm. The new album promises another dose of indie pop rock meets classic rock, special guest appearances (including Gillard on six songs) and a new sense of urgency for a band ready for the next chapter.
