After finally being in the same room for the first time in six months, the Infamous Stringdusters seized the moment for their revealing new album, Toward the Fray.
Inspired by self-reflection and a strong sense of solidarity, the project documents the Grammy Award-winning group’s remarkable growth as instrumentalists as well as songwriters. Released on their own label, Americana Vibes, the collection also firmly establishes the band’s stature on the modern acoustic music landscape, where they’ve built a solid and enduring fan base among traditional and progressive audiences alike.
The five band members – Travis Book (bass), Andy Falco (guitar), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle), Andy Hall (Dobro), and Chris Pandolfi (banjo) -- wrote the songs on Toward the Fray separately, sending simple phone demos to each other during lockdown. Fueled by friendship and a mastery of their instruments, the 13-track collection feels live, but not necessarily loose, due to a synergy that’s developed over the last 16 years of playing sheds, clubs, and festival stages across the country.
At Meier, we used their arresting album artwork to create the ultimate piece of Towards the Fray merch on our high performance, eco-friendly skis and snowboards.
This Infamous Stringdusters custom snowboard is made on Meier's popular "Native" all mountain snowboard model:
The Native (formerly called the Jim Bridger) pays homage to the first inhabitants of Colorado. Inspired by the Corsair plane, the V rocker in the center of the board engages in firm conditions while still allowing for soft float in powder. Riders find this hyper unique design performing well all over the state (and beyond!) in every condition from icy early season groomers, mid-winter pow and spring slush alike.
What it looks like: V rocker with unlimited possibilities. Camber that engages when you need it, while the subtle edges of the V disengage when you don't (like pow).
What it’s for: Riders wanting one board to take them everywhere. The unique rocker provides stability on firm groomers and steep, narrow couloirs but rides on top of the holy grail of knee-deep fresh pow.
