We have more Lower 40 news that you can shake a stick at, kiddies! And in honor of back to school, get out your pencils and take notes. There will be a test on this material. Make sure your thinking cap is on tight! We’ve got shows, albums, and merch all headed your way, so you are going to want to pay attention!
First up, Chris Unck and the Black Roses (which this show will be Atlanta’s own, Carnivores) will be in full force at the Earl on August 21. The guys will be opening up for The Tom Collins at their reunion show. This night is going to be for the history books, so don’t miss it. More info at www.badearl.com.
Don’t forget!!!! Ridiculous!! Ridiculous!! , the latest musical creation from Chris Unck and the Black Roses, in all its digital glory, will be out in the land of the internets on August 18. We will be posting a list soon of all the digital outlets that will be selling the album, ringtones, etc. so you will be able to find the album with ease. It will of course be available at the usual outlets, but we want to get you the skinny on things that are not the norm as well. Butch Walker is hooked on the album, and you will be too. August 18………….
Next show on the list, Night Driving in Small Towns will be sharing the stage with Sub Pop’s very own, Fruit Bats. It all goes down at the Earl on September 6. Death Vessel is on the bill as well. Fruit Bats has a new album, it came out today actually, and if you haven’t heard these guys, you should. Night Driving is honored to be playing with them and we can’t wait for this show. The night will be drenched in bliss pop for sure. More info at www.badearl.com. And you can buy the poster over at the Lower 40 store. We have two slightly different versions for you to choose from. Rian did a fantastic job, as usual.
And another reminder, Let the Lead Fly, the long awaited new release from Wrinkle Neck Mules hits stores on September 22. Stay tuned for more info on that.
We are going to be adding new merch and having some killer sales on things coming up soon, so keep an eye peeled for a rad deal on tshirts, posters, and more at the Lower 40 Store. And as an aside, if you aren’t following us on Twitter (@lower40records), well you are missing out.
Right on boys and girls! Study hard! We don’t want you to fail this test. And maybe we will see you at a show or two soon! That’s extra credit.
