Digital Blurb "I'm so thrilled to get to see 6 String Drag again. They're as great as ever. Like reconnecting with a long-lost friend." – Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers) In the mid to late '90s, the Raleigh, North Carolina-based 6 String Drag stood out as pioneers of the nascent alt-country movement, grinding it out in the clubs alongside Whiskeytown, Drive-By Truckers and Son Volt. The band's Steve Earle-produced album, High Hat, remains an undisputed classic. High Hat has been out of print for years and up until now, never available on Vinyl. On Jan 19th, 2018 Schoolkids Records proudly re-issues the alt-country classic with its first ever Vinyl pressing which includes a download code of the remastered album and a bonus track. The remastered album will also be available on the CD format and digitally worldwide. This is a must for all alt-country and Americana fans worldwide as it is considered one of the best alt-country albums of all time. After a 16-year hiatus, 6 String Drag reunited in 2014 and played a handful of reunion shows, including the 40th Anniversary of the legendary Schoolkids Records retail store in Raleigh, NC alongside Drivin' N' Cryin' and The Baseball Project, featuring Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate), Scott McCaughey (Minus 5) and Mike Mills (R.E.M.) This led to more shows and eventually to the release of 2015's "Roots Rock N Roll" (Royal Potato Family) 6 String Drag is also currently finishing up recording of their fourth studio album,"Top of The World" which will also be released on Schoolkids in-house label in March of 2018.
