Blazing sun, strings and skins, from the Downtown Las Vegas Strip to the burning rock of the Mojave Desert. Welcome to the world of Tin Toy Cars.

Our debut album "Falling, Rust & Bones" was released on January 22nd, 2016. Some curious little tales are spun in these 9 songs, packed with new sounds and unexpected compositional twists. They will challenge your perception of what a mandolin is, while steering you back and forth between traditional Roots-Americana flavors, and the grit of Alternative rock and roll. Indie-Americana on New Relic Records. New sounds for a new generation of listeners.

We're extremely grateful for the great media support that "Falling, Rust & Bones" received after it's release. We broke some records for new releases on the AMA radio charts, with an unprecedented first week position at #168, and have enjoyed sharing our thoughts with the press through a variety of media outlets. Check out some of the features in the blog below.

We are currently gearing up for the release some new music in the spring of 2019, which we're very excited about. We'll be doing some regional touring in the spring and summer, so keep your eyes on the performance schedule, to see when TTC will be playing near you.

New album on the way! 

Exciting times around here. After many months of labor, we've just finished the new album. These songs emerged over the last year or so, some with just a word or phrase, others with a little mandolin line or a melody, and now they live together side by side in the collection we call "Falling, Rust and Bones." It's pretty cool watching these things take shape, sitting in the studio making little choices that change the direction of a composition, or adjusting a word that gives new depth to a lyric. And now, alas, it's complete, and it will soon leave our hands and go into yours. We're psyched to share it with you, and hopefully there will be bits that you want to listen to more than once…and find yourself singing along to in the car. 

Meanwhile, we're putting the finishing touches on a video for the song "Do Everything You Can Before You're Dead," which is going to be hot. The production of this video was a bit epic, shot on a Red Dragon in some awesome locations. The release date has not yet been announced, so check back here for updates.
