Need a little Roadside Recovery? Miss Quincy and the Showdown are releasing Roadside Recovery, the third full-length album for Quincy and first for the full band, on April 8th, 2014. The album is a testament to the touring warriors Quincy and the band truly are; having clocked over 100,000kms while honing their musical skills crossing no less than seven countries, playing every dirty barroom, music club, house concert and festival on the way. They’ve mostly seen it all, made their choices good or bad, and now they’re gonna to tell you all about it. You won’t find them singing pretty pages out of their diaries, this is get down and dirty roots & blues and straight up rock n’ roll. Roadside Recovery is available upon release on iTunes, CD Baby and through MissQuincy.ca, as well as at all live shows.

What goes well with a new album release? A video of course! And Miss Quincy and the Showdown worked really hard shooting TWO new videos to go with the release, but improbable disaster struck. The drive containing the video footage was stolen in Vancouver in a vehicle break-in, and the back-up drive that contained a copy has mysteriously gone missing. The search for the missing drives has been extensive but it’s looking like the amazing videos that could have been, are lost forever..
Roadside Recovery was produced and recorded by Matt Rogers (The Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer) at both Afterlife and Neighborhood Studios, who took the road grit and whiskey regrets from the band and scrubbed every track with them liberally. “Bad Love” leads with a thumping heartbeat, building to a screeching riff; it’s a hot little number that makes you wanna crank it to eleven and jump up on the speakers. The album secures it’s fate with “What Is Life If It Ain’t Strange” and “Making Money”, while it settles in with slow cookers like “Talkin Trash” and “Take It To The Well”. Roadside Recovery is full of soul and vibrant life, breaking boundaries for Miss Quincy and the Showdown, or rather, smashing them down in the style of Joan Jett or the Black Keys.
