Josh Abbott Band has released the title track from their forthcoming August 18th album release, “Until My Voice Goes Out”.
The song has become a tribute to the singer’s late father as it was the last song David Abbott heard before his death in March. Josh Abbott had just cut the vocals in Austin, Texas, and upon returning to Lubbock, he played them for his father.
Sometimes things just work the way they’re supposed to work,” the singer says. “I didn’t write that song for my dad, but in a way, maybe without me knowing, I did. It fits my life now, and in his absence, I couldn’t be more grateful for that song and that album title.”
Taste of Country describes the song as “an easy, mid-tempo country groove with nostalgic guitars and driving bass. Abbott sings about his aspirations and what he hopes to do with his life. The full album explores life and death with personal emphasis. Abbott employs strings and horns for the first time, including emotional book ends to begin and end.”

JAB is on the road in support of the album with a horns and string sections this summer and Fall with stops in Austin, TX, Nashville, TN, Las Vegas, NV and New York City, NY.
