The rock trio Miggs will be releasing its fifth album, “Wide Awake,” on May 18, 2010, via Rock Ridge Music. The first album to feature drummer Ryan Scarbrough (who joined vocalist/guitarist Don Miggs and bassist Michael Lombardo in the group in 2008), “Wide Awake” was recorded in Tampa in December 2009 with multi-platinum producer/engineer Ken Lewis (Fall Out Boy, Kanye West). Easily Miggs’ most accomplished, fresh-sounding and accessible collection of songs to date, “Wide Awake” is about clarity, focus; seeing things the way they are – not as we want them to be – and accepting, even embracing that state. It’s a good thing even when it’s a bad thing sometimes.

“I wanted to make an album that felt both immediate and nostalgic,” says band namesake Don Miggs. “It’s worn in and new at the same time. This is the first time I ever recorded an album with same guys I’d been playing with for the last two years and it shows. We didn’t have to try to make it all fit. It just did.”

To promote the album before its release in May, Miggs will appear on the national morning television show “The Today Show” on NBC on April 10th. Additionally, the group has been posting an ongoing weekly series of webisodes on its website (www.miggsmusic.com), which examines what happens behind the scenes with Miggs: a crew of cameras and feature film Hollywood producers followed Miggs on the road for six months – on tour, recording “Wide Awake,” playing on “Good Morning America,” eating at IHop, sleeping in Motel 6’s, and at home in Tampa.
