Tons of shows and release news forthcoming! Start with this:
Things have been kind of quiet over here for some time but we are starting to ramp up again with some killer releases and a few shows to boot. First up is the “Californnessee” tour that will see Matt Woods (Now with Drums!), American Dirt, 50 Watt Heavy and the Dead Volts playing a round of shows together in May. It’s a killer line-up for a tour so try to make some of those shows if you can.
We have a few upcoming releases to get excited about to. A split 7″ from two of our favorite artists as well as two full lengths from artists already on the roster. We will be announcing all of this very soon.
Our latest release is a four way split 7″ record, maximum bang for your buck here. Dead Volts, American Dirt, 50 Watt Heavy and Grub Dog & the Amazing Sweethearts all turn in tight and punchy songs on this micro-mini comp. Get it!
Honestly can’t believe we are on Twang N Bang VIII already. Every Labor Day is extra special for us here at Twang n Bang since we get to do our yearly celebration of killer bands. When we first started out it was all San Luis Obispo based bands but since then we’ve started welcoming bands that come through SLO often from such distant lands as Santa Barbara, Sacramento and even Austin, Texas! This years lineup is killer, check it out:
50 Watt Heavy
Grub Dog & the Amazing Sweethearts
The Trouble Spots
St. James Infirmary
King Walrus & the Magicians
Long awaited and well worth it….
We are very proud to be a part of the debut album from American Dirt, “Heavy Thought & Riddle”. These guys have been putting in the work and becoming a really great band. This album is a killer set of tunes that you will undoubtedly be singing along with well after you finally stop listening and are just trying to get some damn sleep. Trust me I know these things.
We celebrate the release of this album on Saturday July 27th at Camozzi’s in Atascadero. American Dirt will of course be laying down a set featuring songs from the new album and with guest drummer Mark Folkrod holding down the drum throne. Mark’s band the Dead Volts (ever heard of them?) are on the bill as well as the debut of former drummer JP’s brand spanking new band Harvey Dent. So yeah it’s gonna be a pretty killer busy night.
Super proud of how this comp came out. Amazing bands and singers doing amazing songs. Dig in!
