20,000 Leagues Under the Sea have been busy. The past several months has seen them “get serious” in some ways, write and record a new album to be released soon, add a slew of shows with regionals like Megan Jean and the KFB, Plains, and Glish, and come into their own as one of the prominent musical entities in Mobile, AL. The album, entitled “Patchwork of Light” is soon to be released, but until then, 20,000 Leagues have released their first single and music video from the album, a reggae inspired tune “Dance Dance Claire” for you to absorb. Featuring appearances by members of other Mobile bands such as Underhill Family Orchestra and The Sunshine Factory and truly keeping it all in the Mobtown family, 20,000 Leagues have also recently been playing with Joshua Paisant of LF Knighton filling in on guitar. One big happy. You can also catch them as part of SouthSounds Music Festival April 12-14. 20,000 Leagues takes the stage at Alchemy Tavern on Saturday, April 13 with Plains and Mississippi Shakedown opening. Check www.southsoundsfest.com for all details. The year is young, but Mobile’s resident “delta psychedelica” band look to be making it a memorable one.
