"The Delines are finally back with a new album The Imperial. Led by vocalist Amy Boone (The Damnations, TX), Cory Gray on keyboards, and horns, Tucker Jackson (The Minus 5) on pedal steel, as well as former Richmond Fontaine members: Sean Oldham, Freddie Trujillo, and Willy Vlautin. Vlautin, the acclaimed novelist and songwriter for Richmond Fontaine, has penned all ten tracks. Where debut album Colfax was an experiment, The Imperial is the result of a year of touring, the solidification of the line up, and months of rehearsals. Recorded in Portland, Oregon and produced by John Morgan Askew, The Imperial shows us again why songwriter, Willy Vlautin became so enamored with Amy Boone's voice. The combination of Vlautin's songs and Boone's voice creates a late night country soul world full of hopefulness and heartbreak. Valutin's star has been rising steadily over the past 4 years with a hit new novel and a hit movie Lean on Pete made from a previous novel of his."
