Taproot will release their sixth full length album, 'The Episodes,' on April 10. The forthcoming effort is produced by Tim Palatan who previously worked with the band on 2010's 'Plead the Fifth' album.

Nearly six years in the making, 'The Episodes' is a complex concept album, a first for the Michigan band. Bassist Phil Lipscomb spoke on the Taproot's creative process for this record, "I think our fans have come to expect the unexpected from us. Having written the story for this album before the music, this record sounds more like a soundtrack than a typical album, with the songs flowing together and taking you on a journey."

This year marks the 15th anniversary of the group, demonstrating their strong reputation atop the modern hard rock empire. Lipscomb talked about the longevity of the band, "I've spent almost half of my life in Taproot traveling the world and I would sum up the whole experience as: I love my job!"
