JARED & THE MILL Release New Single “Dark Highways”

Jared & The Mill have released “Dark Highways – LISTEN HERE. “Dark Highways,” which Relix pinpoints as one of the highlights of the band’s forthcoming album, This Story Is No Longer Available (out 2/15/19), is an “anthemic examination of the touring lifestyle” which finds the band balancing his love for their family and friends with their addition to their transient lifestyle. The song expressed that even in the darkest of moments “you and your lover’s hearts can push through any of it.”

Of writing the single, Michael Carter reflects, “I wrote Dark Highways during an overnight drive on tour. I had gone on a walk to call my girlfriend Ash and realized there were no streetlights in the neighborhood. It was nearly pitch-black outside. I remember telling her I might as well been walking down a dark hallway. Later on, our drive, I reflected and wrote a bit on the realization that I wouldn’t see the person I loved physically for quite some time. We’d been together for years, and I had gone on many tours, but again I had to reckon with the fact that I just straight up wouldn’t see her in any of these rooms, these dark hallways or highways, these music venues, truck stops, etc.”  

Beginning in February, Jared & The Mill will be heading out on another national tour in support ofThis Story Is No Longer Available. In partnership with the charity Can’d Aid, for every dollar sold from ticket sales, a dollar will be donated to Can’d Aid in support of their mission to spread “do-goodery.” Additionally, throughout the tour the band will be doing workshops with schools in 10 cities (dates and cities have yet to be announced) where they will donate instruments to selected schools.
