Third Man Records is excited to release The Greenhornes' first full length LP of new material since 2002's Dual Mono. This new album may be their strongest collection of songs yet. It's diverse yet very concise, from the dark pop of lead single ''Saying Goodbye,'' the bubble glam of ''Song 13,'' to ''Cave Drawings'' moody psych; it's an eclectic and mature work and very much The Greenhornes own.
First new recordings in 5 years
Featuring members of the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather
US/European touring planned through end of the year
Hand-picked by Jim Jarmusch for 2010 All Tomorrow's Parties festival
For fans of authentic garage/psych a la the ''Nuggets'' compilations
Band Members: Craig Fox (Vocals & Guitar), Jack Lawrence (Bass & Vocals), Parick Keeler (Drums), Featuring Andrew Higley on Keys
The trio of Craig Fox, Patrick Keeler and 'Little' Jack Lawrence - heretofore known as The Greenhornes - have been churning out the highest quality rock n roll for well over a decade. Formed in the late 90s in Cincinnati, Ohio, The Greenhornes have toured the world over (and over and over), released 3 full length albums, an ep and a boat load of singles across a multitude of record labels. What to say about the sound...pure, straight up Nuggets inspired rock and roll. And by straight-up we mean sans revisionist new wave of snotty garage rock posturing. These guys have been weened on a diet almost solely consisting of the finest r+b and rock innovators: The Kinks, The Who, The Zombies and The Easybeats are immediately recognizable in their sound. This isn't a hobby or something these guys are doing between projects--it's their life. Good, old-fashioned rock 'n' roll, plain and simple.
LP: 180 gram vinyl; custom die cut jacket; LP also will be pressed on four different colors of vinyl.
