If you look to the right, you might notice that we've just announced a few new shows. But there will be many more to follow later in the year because...
We have a new record coming out in September.
Yes, the first album by The Dream Syndicate since we released "Ghost Stories" back in 1988. It will be released on ANTI, one of the cooler labels out there.
What can we tell you about the new record?
Well, let's see. It's true to our history, a bounty of gifts for everyone who's been there since the old days and yet unlike anything we ever did before. It's a post-millennial existential screed that feels like RIGHT NOW and at the same time a timeless joyous thrill ride. It's psychedelic, it's rocking, it's garage, it's classic, it's indie and it's even a soul and jazz record in the most literal sense, a sonic and emotional journey to the deepest recesses of your mind. It's what we do on stage and yet it's brand new. Most of all, we dig it. A lot.
And we hope you will, too. Hang on just a little longer and we'll start putting out some teasers, videos, a single and more concert dates leading up to the release itself.
We can't wait. And, in the meantime, if you happen to be on the East Coast or up in the Arctic Circle (!) you just might hear a few of those new songs live before the release.
See you soon.
