Experience what it was like to be in the room by revisiting the live footage of William Tyler & The Impossible Truth’s mind-expanding take on “Area Code 601,” a previously unreleased crowd favorite:

Recorded May 29, 2021, in Huntsville, Alabama, Secret Stratosphere finds William Tyler and fellow psychedelic dreamers christened “The Impossible Truth,” refashioning prime cuts from the Nashville guitarist’s rich catalog. The quartet stretches the dynamics of Tyler’s compositions to their fullest interdimensional potential, exposing a deep undercurrent of kosmische and post-rock influences and confirming his place as one of our most brilliant guitarists, bandleaders, and composers.

If you’ve listened to Secret Stratosphere and want to see more of William Tyler live, he will be embarking on a run of solo shows across Europe in May.
