Nice to meet you, 2017

January 11, 2017

Nice to meet you, 2017. Given your predecessor’s savage behavior, here’s hoping you took some notes on how to be. Or how not to be.

The new record will be released on March 24 via Undertow will full touring to follow. Britton Beisenherz, Matt Pence and Ricky Ray Jackson left their beautiful fingerprints all over this thing. We made it in Austin, TX at Ramble Creek Recording. I’m really grateful to have had them join for this record, and to have Matthew Genitempo’s photography on another LP cover.

Track listing:
1. Childress (To Ogden)
2. Every Single Day Of Late
3. Ruby Shameless
4. Filled With A Falcon’s Dreams
5. Heresy And Snakes
6. Hey-O, Hi-O
7. Predator
8. Milaak
9. Hatteras

Pre-orders will start on January 24.

We’re gonna do some electrified, full band venue shows here in Texas soon, with the lovely and wonderful Samantha Crain supporting. This lineup will include Greg Vanderpool on guitars/backing vocals, Britton Beisenherz on bass/keys, Ricky Ray Jackson on pedal steel/guitars, and Rob Sanchez on drums/percussion. Rehearsals start soon, and I think we’ll make some big sounds and a nice racket together.
