Hey there! Been a while. Wow. Well, we’ll have you know we’ve been keepin’ on with the keepin’ on. Here’s what’s up. For those following along at home, you know it’s about time for the annual Kurt von Stetten release. Yep. We’re looking at November for the next one. No title yet, but there will be some limited edition lathe cut vinyl. Very cool. Stay tuned.
In other news, The Longwalls are also back at it and are putting the finishing touches on record #6. It’s going to be called Red Shirts, and we’re hoping for some vinyl for this one as well. Look for a release in early 2019-ish.
Meanwhile… The Longwalls are also very excited to be part of the 8th Annual JP Music Fest coming up on September 8. It’s free and fun for the whole family. Details here. Longwalls hit the stage in the 1pm hour. AND.. we’ll have a limited edition cassette featuring 2 tracks from the upcoming record—for free give-away!
Look out for more shows in the fall and a release party for the new record.
Ok, that’s it for now. We won’t be strangers. Promise.
Well ain’t this a hum-dinger! Alan opens up with “Sargasso in Space” off The Longwalls‘ classic 2012 EP, Careers in Science; follows it up with a tease from the band’s forthcoming 6th release with (soon-to-be-blistering) “Red Shirts;” slows things down with “Rukia” from 2015’s Gold Standard; and then closes things out going way back to 2010’s “Playwrights” off the Dark Academy EP. Good on ya, Alan!!
One of the East Coast’s best sounds / Sneaky Good! – Alan and the band play dark pop songs influenced by cultural tides, historical figures and social ephemera and this set was no different. The Longwalls last two full-length albums, The Gold Standard and Kowloon are two sides of the same study of coins – demonstrating just how good they really are. This January, The Longwalls dropped a live album you need to hear (here!)
Long weekend, so Sunday night is quite OK for partying. Join us this Sunday for the 3rd Annual Listen Local event featuring some of Boston’s best bands selected by the tastemakers that bring them to you first (the estimable Ryan Spaulding in our case). And just across the street from Boston’s biggest Music Festival!
As announced last night on Boston Emissions, our very own Longwalls have been selected as one of the 24 bands for the 2016 Rock & Roll Rumble! Quite the honor we’d say. Dates and times TBD but the initial round is the first week of April. Block those calendars, we’ll need your support! Now check out the poster and then head on over to Vanyaland to sample all the bands. Huzzah!
