The Middle Ground releases 'Start Again' LP + goes on summer tour

For Nashville-based four-piece The Middle Ground, holding back is not an option. Their 2016 LP Start Again is filled with anthemic, chorus-driven explosions of energy, like “The Edge” (streaming below) and “Lake Michigan,” among others. Their sound is like a cross between Neon Trees, Imagine Dragons, and something else that’s entirely their own (maybe it’s just something in the water in Music City.) They are currently in the middle of a long summer tour, with upcoming stops in NYC, Philadelphia, New Jersey, and more. - Lilly Milman
