When Aaron Moreland and Dustin Arbuckle announced the end of their musical partnership in 2017, few doubted that either would make music again.

Arbuckle formed Dustin Arbuckle & The Damnations with former M&A drummer Kendall Newby and gigged with his long-term acoustic project Haymakers.

Moreland, as he had promised, spent time with his family and contemplated his next move.

Dustin Arbuckle and Tom Page formed the band Haymakers in 2012 and almost from the start they've wanted to make a record. But it's only now that the group, rounded out by Ted Farha, Mark Foley and Dennis Hardin, has gotten around to releasing an album.

After more than a decade making music together, Aaron Moreland and Dustin Arbuckle are experiencing unprecedented success as a recording act. Their new album, Promised Land or Bust, celebrates their hard work and friendship.

Singer/songwriter Curt Mitchell was raised in rural Kansas. His music is rooted firmly in the Alt-Country, Americana genre. Today he makes his home in Wichita where he continues to write and perform.

At a young age Curt developed an appreciation for the likes of Hank Williams, Merle Haggard and George Jones through his father and was exposed to the likes of Bob Dylan, The Band and The Rolling Stones through his uncles. Both his uncles and father were musicians.

Roots rock trio Moreland and Arbuckle has just issued its latest album, 7 Cities, which marks a number of firsts for the Wichita-based outfit. It’s the first time the band has recorded an entire project outside its home base, the first record to feature drummer Kendall Newby, and the first time the band has worked with an outside producer.

Dustin Arbuckle first teamed up with musical partner Aaron Moreland in 2001 after they met at an open mic night. Soon after that they recorded under the name The King Snakes before changing the band's name to Moreland & Arbuckle circa 2005. The pair has recorded four albums as Moreland and Arbuckle, including 1861 (2008), Flood (2009), and Just A Dream (2011). The trio (rounded out by drummer Kendall Newby) will release a new album this summer, which was produced by Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Minus the Bear, Russian Circles).
