WE WILL BE AT SXSW THIS YEAR! 5 shows and maybe more coming...see you there.
HI, released another track from future album, "HEAVY META" today over at Under the Radar, the song will also be on a compilation album I'm putting together for American Diamond Recordings. READ MORE ABOUT HERE.
I've been working on a record for the last year with my pal, Joe Bisirri, and it's done and i believe it will be called "HEAVY META". Until all that is birthed in the physical and digital form later this year, here is a music video directed by Ryan Bender for a song from the record called, "Young Lady, You're Scaring Me". Premiered today on Brooklyn Vegan.
the reviews are flying in:
"it's nice to see garage rock where the lyrics aren't about smoking weed or aliens or pizza"
This is the last song I ever sang as a lifelong resident of Philadelphia. Settling in well here in Nashville. Hi. It's "Search and Destroy" by The Stooges.
It's been a transformative year. Pretty, ugly. My new record will tell you a little bit about it, and I hope to share all of that soon. However, time has come to turn some pages as I cap off some weird rebirth by leaving the place I've called home for the last decade, say farewell to life part one and relocate down to Nashville, TN for a while to bury myself in jams, good people and figure out what to do next. Band and I will be capping off the year with two shows I am quite excited about.

got a bunch of things in the works right now. (second album, a "zine", an american diamond recordings compilation) and a live-album from a session i did with the awesome peoples over at allston pudding in boston in march. it was while i was on tour with the lawsuits, and they were my band for the session. here is a peak with a song called, "Kill the Medicine Man":
the lawsuits and i venture south to nashville in May. stay tuned for dates.
happy to announce The Lawsuits and I will be embarking on a cosmic pummeling (tour) of the entire northeastern United States this March. honored that they will also be my band for this tour.
a handful of these dates are also with the very great Happiness The Band who you may recognize from Deer Tick and Ravi Shavi.
for those not intrigued by non-moving pictures here is a video of mundane tour promotional tasks to get you excited that also features a very unfulfilling snippet of one of the new songs on an upcoming release of mine....more soon.
got to caitlin's at 5pm and had this submitted by 7pm on the day of the deadline. good work caitlin mccann on video, dom billett on drums. this is a new unreleased song from a future album called "kill the medicine man".
P.S. got the masters for some new tracks today. i think it's the best thing i've done so far. excited to share, more on that and tour dates soon....in the meantime coming to the west coast 2/6-2/14.
Today Diffuser.fm premiered a new music video for a song called "Started a War" from an album called, "RONNY". My good friend, art sister, camera master Caitlin McCann of Dog Days Films shot and edited it and we co-directed it alongside my main woman and co-star Paige Fletcher with our collective sick minds. What's happening here is hopefully something very familiar if you've been in a relationship thing with another human. It is intended for laughter and "oh my god that's like SO US" kind of reactions. It is passive aggressive, i am not wearing pants and it's a day in the life of two lovers in an all too familiar ancient style quarrel. I sincerely hope you find discomfort while viewing and enjoy!
