Click for more ticket information.

May 9, 2017 – Acclaimed singer songwriter Lera Lynn began 2017 with solo dates close to home in GA, TN, and KY.  Now, she prepares for a tour with John Paul White (Civil Wars) starting in Birmingham, AL and travelling through Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and the Carolinas, to name a few.

This will be Lynn’s first tour with White, however, this is not the first time their music will be heard together. Both contributed original tracks to HBO’s True Detective Season 2 Soundtrack where Lera Lynn also made a cameo appearance as the sultry bar singer and was hailed, the highlight of the season.

“I’ve admired [John Paul’s] work both as a musician and a producer for so long. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to tour with him. It seems like something that should’ve happened a long time ago!” Lynn says referencing her first tour with White.

John Paul White is touring in support of his latest album, Beulah, while Lera Lynn is currently writing for her next studio release.

American Songwriter names Lynn’s latest album Resistor as one of their Top 50 Albums of 2016    –   “it’s a rock record at its core, packed with aggression and taunting vamps that are anchored by Lynn’s clever lyricism, daring composition and super-sensual vocals.” – Marissa Moss, American Songwriter

 

Listen to Lera’s interview with NPR Weekend Edition about Resistor here.

You can also watch the striking videos for Resistor standouts “Drive” and “Shape Shifter.”

Here’s what else the press are saying about Lera Lynn.

“The heat is in lyrics about desire, pain, betrayal and revenge….the cool is in languorous slow tempos, minor chords, ruthlessly laconic arrangements, guitar lines swathed in reverb and a voice that smolders a long time before it flares up.”

-New York Times


“Lynn has a gift for sensory subtlety, and she uses it to get at emotional truths”

NPR Music

“At once spacey and specific…Baritone guitars, keyboards and looped drums fill the background, while Lynn’s voice — a natural descendent of Hope Sandoval and Margo Timmins’ woozy wails — wafts into the spotlight, singing songs that occupy the outer limits of Americana and indie rock.”

-Rolling Stone

“The Texas native’s delivery…is alternately delicate and menacing, vulnerable and moody.”

-Paste

“Filling Lynn’s remarkable compositions with exactly enough sound to create an atmosphere for the songs. In some places, they toy with rhythm, in others they tease out the spaces between notes, and in others still, the emphasis is Lynn’s vocal – so completely unique that I can’t think of a single comparison.”

-No Depression

“[Prefers] to push boundaries and create challenging often unsettling music that encourages multiple spins to reveal its substantial pleasures.”

-American Songwriter

*****

Frightened Rabbit’s fifth studio album “PAINTING OF A PANIC ATTACK” – produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner – enjoyed a Top 25 debut on the Soundscan/Billboard 200 chart upon its release last year, peaking at #2 on iTunes’ Alternative chart and #8 overall. The album’s lead single “Get Out” scored Top 10 success on FMQB’s Triple A chart, and garnered the band a pair of national television appearance, performing on CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and “Late Late Show with James Corden.”   The song’s emotionally provocative, companion video made its premiere on NPR’s All Songs Considered and received a raft of praise from influential sites, including Pitchfork, Stereogum, and Consequence of Sound, among others. The video – beautifully shot in Kiev –can be viewed at the band’s official YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/frightenedrabbit).

“PAINTING OF A PANIC ATTACK” follows 2013’s major label debut “PEDESTRIAN VERSE,” which earned a Top 10 debut in the UK as well as critical acclaim from a wide spectrum of American press, with praise coming from mainstream outlets like Rolling Stone and Time as well tastemaker blogs like Pitchfork and Stereogum.  The band’s emotionally charged live shows have earned a devoted fanbase, which includes bands like Death Cab For Cutie and The National – both of whom have handpicked Frightened Rabbit to support them on extensive tours.

The Unlikely Candidates playing Diesel May 6

The Unlikely Candidates’ songs have over 10 million listens on Spotify and the band has over 210,000 Monthly Listeners.

“The sonics range from Led Zeppelin to The Strokes, with sleek, infectious riffage and smart, catchy vocals.” – Fort Worth Weekly

“… Unlikely Candidates bring poppy adult alternative that you’ll love if you’re a fan of bands like Imagine Dragons or Grouplove.” – NBC San Diego

“…the Unlikely Candidates was the biggest surprise at last year’s City of Trees shindig at Bonney Field, peddling some ultra sharp, melodically blistering alt-pop rock with just the right amount of roughness around the edges.” – The Sacramento Bee

“…soaring, sing-along-ready earworms with sky-high ambitions. It’s indie rock made for stadium-sized crowds… moving from the Mumford-esque acoustic anthem ‘Just Breathe’ to the electro-pop of ‘Ringer.’” – Aspen Times

“…this new direction finds the band successfully becoming everything Panic! at the Disco tries so hard to be.” – Central Track

“’Ringer’ could be the most fun alternative rock song of the year…The Unlikely Candidates should be household names right now, the band’s always been that good. With their new EP, they get to prove it. Here’s hoping that in 2017 they earn the rep they deserve.” – Alternative Addiction 4.5/5 Star Review

 

  • The Unlikely Candidates are currently playing throughout the US on their “The People’s Choice” headline tour as well as playing other select dates and big radio shows in support of their Bed Of Liars EP that was released on February 17, 2017.

 

  • MySpacerecently named The Unlikely Candidates the “…number one pick for who you must see at SXSW this year.” In the past, they were mentioned in The New York Times and Esquire as a must-see band to see at SXSW as well.

 

  • VEVO premiered the video their song “Ringer.” Watch it HEREThe video represents a massive global effort by the band who wanted to have people from all over the world participate in playing out all their interesting and weird ideas.  With the help of Fiverr, the world’s largest marketplace for creative and digital services for entrepreneurs and small businesses, they helped the band achieve a first of its kind creation resulting in submissions from over 27 countries, including some as far reaching as Macedonia, Sri Lanka, Egypt and Mozambique.  Other submissions that made it into the video were from the US, France, Jamaica, South Africa, India, Australia, Germany, Philippines, Ukraine, Serbia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Russia, Venezuela, Haiti, Japan, Korea, Switzerland, UK, Ireland, Argentina, and Greece. The video took Singer Kyle Morris over 200 hours over two and a half months piecing it together with director Adam VillaSenor

 

  • The band has played Bonnaroo, Firefly, Riot Fest and have toured with St. Lucia, Nothing But Thieves, Weathers, and The Moth & The Flame. The Unlikely Candidates were selected as part of Taco Bell’s Feed The Beat program, and “Ringer” has enjoyed extensive in-store play with major brands including Whole Foods and Guess Jeans stores nationwide.

Riff Propelled Power Trio FUZZ EVIL Release Debut Full Length

fuzzevilmastercover_smThis Fall will see the release of the debut studio full-length from Arizona’sFUZZ EVIL. Formed in Sierra Vista in 2014, FUZZ EVIL is a riff propelled power trio founded by brothers Wayne and Joseph Rudell, also of heavy desert stoners Powered Wig Machine. With two singles currently to their name – last year’s Born Of Iron and 2014’s 7” split with fellow Arizonans, Chiefs – this September sees the official release of their self-titled debut on Washington-based label Battleground Records.

Joined by newest member and fellow Powered Wig Machinist Daniel Graves on drums, FUZZ EVIL serves up a thunderous blast of rock and roll reverie indebted to the likes of MC5, The Stooges, Black Sabbath and Clutch. Recorded, mixed and mastered at Primrose Studio by Brian Gold, from the opening crunch of “Good Medicine,” which features Unida/House Of Broken Promises’ Arthur Seay, to the progressively harbingered “Black Dread,” Fuzz Evil flows like the diaries of a cosmic nomad. Swirling and psychedelically enhanced with storylines spun from the mind’s eye of vocalist Wayne Rudell and his obsession with comic books, science fiction and cult cinema. The psychedelic cover artwork was handled by Rudell’s co-owned GhostTown Graphic Art.

Fuzz Evil embarks on US West Coast Tour this October in support of the new album, which will be released on CD, LP, and digital formatsSeptember 30th.
