April just so happens to be a very busy month for us, highlighted by our show with Waylon Speed on April 25 at The Middle East. The Burlington VT natives have made a solid name for themselves since their formation in 2009 and have shown no signs of stopping anytime soon. “The press has called Waylon Speed “gas on the fire of the current music scene” and “heavy, fiery country rock, for those who like their punk rock with some twang in it – but also appreciate high quality, intelligent songwriting.”
The band is touring around New England in support of their new album “Valance” which you can get a sampling of on their website or in this short promotion on Youtube. The band has shared the stage with Jane’s Addiction, Clutch, Little Feat, Reba McEntire, Elvis Costello, Primus, and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals among many other great names in the business.
In addition, we are heading into the studio to put the finishing touches on the album and get it ready to release in a few months. We can’t really put into words how excited we are about these songs, and think you’re gonna dig them as well. We are working with some pretty talented individuals who we will keep secret for now! See you at the show!
