New album - To Hell with These Streets - complete

Can't wait to get this out - we're just waiting on mastering and hope to have it ready late October... and we'll be playing the album in it's entirety live around then (details to follow).

To Hell With These Streets is produced by myself, Working Poor drummer Wayne Bell and guitarist Andrew Thorne. It's a ten tracker - and covers a lot of musical ground - names thrown around in the studio included Stevie Wonder, Bailter Space, R L Burnside, Future, Lou Reed, James McMurtry, Vince Staples, The Hold Steady, Iggy's Stooges and Steve Earle - some tracks revisit characters from earlier records (Lucille from 2012's Edge of The City Recent Hire pops up again) - there's acoustic-based narratives, one-chord drones, elegies for lost friends, rockers and noir confessions. To Hell With These Streets takes place in bars, hotel rooms, liquor stores, street corners, coffee shops and bathroom cabinets often long after the sun's set.

The first track Life Is Short is out now.
