T. Hardy Morris (Dead Confederate) preps album, films videos at "Places In Peril"

Dangerbird Records and T. Hardy Morris have announced the July 30 release of Audition Tapes, the debut solo album from the talented and prolific Athens, GA based musician. Stark and startling in its evocative, atmospheric power, Audition Tapes sees Morris – best known as front man for Southern psych-rockers Dead Confederate and as a member of the collective juggernaut Diamond Rugs – unleashing something quite unique, a kind of outlaw country grunge, haunting and forlorn.

In a nod to the nostalgic tinge running through Audition Tapes, as well as his own reverence for his home state, Morris and filmmaker/photographer Jason Thrasher have traveled to 10 historic sites throughout Georgia to film live performance “takeaway” videos of each song on the record. All of these sites have been chosen for the “Places In Peril” list, published annually by The Georgia Trust For Historic Preservation (Learn More), which seeks to identify and preserve historic sites threatened by demolition and neglect.
Over the coming weeks Morris will be releasing these videos and drawing attention to the “Places in Peril” program. During this same period, The Georgia Trust will be accepting nominations for the 2014 list, with a deadline of Monday, June 3. Visit GeorgiaTrust.org for a nomination form.
