The High 48s - Crocodile Man - Album Art

We’re thrilled to announce that our new album, Crocodile Man 🐊, is officially out in the world and available for streaming on all the major platforms including Spotify and Apple Music and for digital download on Bandcamp!! Physical CDs are currently only available at our live shows, but we hope to get an online store up and running before the year’s end.

We’re SO happy with how it turned out and can’t wait for you to hear it! If you enjoy it, we’d ask that you give it a like/heart and share it with a friend. Those types of things go a long way to helping more people find us in the vast streaming universe, thanks!!


About the Album

On Crocodile Man, The High 48s continue to explore new musical territory while staying true to their hard bluegrass roots. From the opening cut, a swampy bluegrass take on Dave Carter’s psychedelic folk masterpiece “Crocodile Man,” to the plaintive closer, Hazel Dickens’ “A Few Old Memories,” the album is a tour through the band’s broad range of influences.

Release Party at Parkway Theater in Minneapolis

The week before the official release we had an amazing time celebrating the new album with a couple hundred friends, fans and family members at the Parkway Theater in Minneapolis on Nov. 4th. We played the entire album front to back for the first set and then took requests for the second set, it was an epic night and a proper send off for this new album that we are so proud of!!
