The Longwalls play The Outlaw Roadshow 10/25/14

The Longwalls are more than a little excited to be opening the final day of the Outlaw Roadshow at 12:30 on 10/25 at the Bowery Electric in NYC. They kick-off quite a bill: taking the stage afterwards will be none other than heavyweights Filligar, Tigerman WOAH, and Mean Creek. Wow. And maybe some others…? It’s all free, and RSVP opens soon so stay tuned! (And how about that poster by Man on Fire!)

The Longwalls to play the Outlaw Roadshow October 25 in NYC!

The Longwalls are playing the Outlaw Roadshow October 25 in NYC!

Well that sure is exciting!! Produced by none other than the Counting Crows’ Adam Duritz and local music hero Ryan Spaulding (Ryan’s Smashing Life), this year’s NYC edition of the Outlaw Roadshow is  set for Oct. 23-25 at the Bowery Electric in NYC. Some 30 bands are taking part! Read all about it at the Boston Herald and on the Outlaw Roadshow website. More details soon, but we do know this: The Longwalls will be playing Saturday afternoon (10/25) and the whole damn thing is FREE. If you’re in the area, or feel like making the trip, it will be well worth it!

The Longwalls live on air!

And possibly a bit tipsy. Give a listen to WEMF this Saturday afternoon from 4-6pm and hear the mighty Longwalls on The Outlaw Radio Show. They’ll be hanging with host extraordinaire Ryan Spaulding and previewing a track or two from their forthcoming new album—The Gold Standard. They’ll also be playing a few things acoustic-style. Rumor has it there will be whiskey. Uh-oh. We suggest you tune in…

Much new music on the way!

Making making making. That’s what we do! Here’s the latest… The new Longwalls album, tentatively titled The Gold Standard, is nearing completion. 11 songs (!) are in the hopper over at Bridge Sound and Stage and we’re close to mixing time. Look for a fall release. In the meantime, the new solo album by Dan LondonI Will Take You Back—will be released this summer. Produced with long-time co-conspirator Mike Quinn at Moontower Studio (Q Division), IWTYB is a late 70s drive-in movie sort of record that takes you back in time. And of course our DIY wunderkind Kurt von Stetten is always at work. Follow along on his stellar music blog. His latest demo—I work figuratively (mostly… mostly)—is an absolutely wonderful bit of garage-tastic power pop. He’s got another record in him for sure, no word on timing just yet. More soon, stay tuned!

It’s makin’ season…

The Boston polar vortex will soon yield a bountiful crop of new musics. The Longwalls are deep into the recording of their 5th album at Bridge Sound and Stage. This one is going to be a full-length (first since their debut) and so far is turning out to be gloriously all over the map. Meanwhile Dan London is working hard with old pal Mike Quinn at Moontower/Q Division and is nearing completion of his second full-length solo album. And of course Kurt.. well, he’s recording songs per usual (follow along on his blog) and will likely have another record out by the end of the year. Oh, and Brandon might make a quiet acoustic EP. Stay tuned.. it won’t be long now!
