Morrissey Unveils New Single "Spent The Day In Bed," Upcoming Tour

Morrissey Unveils New Single "Spent The Day In Bed," Upcoming Tour

'Low in High School' Out November 17 on BMG
September 20, 2017 - Morrissey has unveiled "Spent The Day In Bed," the debut single from his new studio album 'Low in High School' (out November 17 on Etienne/BMG). A departure from the sound of his canon, the song is driven by electric piano, synthesizers and acoustic guitars which underpin the iconic British singer's intimate call to focus on our own strengths and to "stop watching the news because the news contrives to frighten you, to make you feel small and alone".

Listen to "Spent The Day In Bed" here: https://morrissey.lnk.to/STDIBStPR
Morrissey has also confirmed the artwork from his forthcoming LP as well as the full track listing that seeks to capture the zeitgeist of an ever-changing world while combining his political statements, personal insights and beautiful melodies. 'Low in High School' was recorded at La Fabrique Studios in France and Ennio Morricone's Forum Studios in Rome. The record is produced by Joe Chiccarelli (Frank Zappa, The Strokes, Beck, The White Stripes).
The album will be available on multiple digital and physical formats, including MFiT, MQS, CD, LP, and cassette. Limited vinyl formats and bundles will be available via the Mporium. Options include different colored vinyl with lyrics and sleeve notes in French (blue), Spanish (transparent orange), and Japanese (transparent yellow). The Mporium will also stock a limited edition 7" box set with clear vinyl.
Pre-order 'Low in High School' here: https://morrissey.lnk.to/LiHSPR
In addition to selling out one night at LA's iconic Hollywood Bowl almost instantly with a second show announced, Morrissey will tour in support of 'Low in High School,' where he will perform many of his beloved classics as well as songs from the new album. Cities Morrissey will visit on his tour include: New York, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Chicago, Denver, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Detroit, San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, St. Louis, Paso Robles, CA, and Portland, OR. Full tour details including dates and venues to come: https://www.facebook.com/Morrissey/app/123966167614127/
Recognized as one of the most influential artists of all time, Morrissey is widely credited as a seminal figure in the emergence of indie rock and Britpop, and his music acts as a rite of passage for all who discover alternative music. His lyrics, at times blunt and fearless, other times vulnerable and poignant, continue to resonate with listeners around the world with their unmatched emotional depth and theatrical, poetic delivery. After The Smiths, Morrissey achieved greater success as a prolific solo artist. All 10 of his solo albums have entered the Top 10 on the UK album charts, including three entries at No. 1. In 2013, Morrissey published his record-breaking autobiography on Penguin Classics, immediately topping the best-seller list with literary reviewers hailing it a masterpiece in writing and prose. Pitchfork called him "one of the most singular figures in Western popular culture," and the UK's Independent declared, "Most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status he has reached in his lifetime."
On October 20th, a special five LP box set deluxe version of The Smiths' 'The Queen is Dead' will be released to celebrate what is perhaps the band's most iconic album.
'Low in High School' Track List:
  1. My Love, I'd Do Anything for You
  2. I Wish You Lonely
  3. Jacky's Only Happy When She's Up on the Stage
  4. Home Is a Question Mark
  5. Spent the Day in Bed
  6. I Bury the Living
  7. In Your Lap
  8. The Girl from Tel-Aviv Who Wouldn't Kneel
  9. All the Young People Must Fall in Love
  10. When You Open Your Legs
  11. Who Will Protect Us from the Police?
  12. Israel

Ron Gallo's "Put The Kids To Bed" Video Premieres At Billboard, 'HEAVY META' Out Now On New West Records

Photo credit: Tom Bejgrowicz
Ron Gallo has released a new video for “Put The Kids To Bed” from his New West Records debut HEAVY META. Premiering the clip along with an in-depth Q&A, Billboard calls HEAVY META “one of the year's most searing and unfiltered alt-rock albums,” and continues, “...the music on Heavy Meta is often as catchy and cathartic as the lyrics are dark -- and the songs were made to be played live.” Read the full feature and watch the video HERE. Throughout the piece, Gallo details his two-year relationship with a woman who struggled with mental-health and drug-addiction issues during which much of HEAVY META was written. "It was a pretty dark time -- not all of it -- but, god, it was a heavy situation. I was frustrated and pissed off with humanity," Gallo divulged to Billboard. This led to an 11-song set that is drenched in aggression and fuzz with themes ranging from Gallo’s personal ideology on abstaining from drugs and alcohol, self-empowerment, domestication, dead love, not knowing yourself, mental illness and more. The songs often demonstrate this sense of frustration with the human race, balanced by the underlying hopefulness of an idealistic realist. 
The February 2017 release of HEAVY META landed on UNCUT’s "The Best Albums Of 2017: Halftime Report" and saw Gallo join Summer tours with Hurray For The Riff Raff, White Reaper, and Twin Peaks. The “insurgent poet and rock 'n' roll disruptor” (NPR Music) also performed highly anticipated sets throughout the festival season, including this year’s Governor’s Ball and Lollapalooza, which earned him a spot on NYLON’s festival season roundup with the description, “A wordsmith of a writer who just so happens to have a knack for rock and roll." Gallo and his band – rounded out by bassist Joe Bisirri (who also co-produced and mixed the album) and drummer Dylan Sevey – will continue taking HEAVY META on the road this Fall with an appearance at Austin City Limits, an October tour supporting The Black Angels, a set at New Orleans’ Voodoo Fest, and a November run with Seattle-based trio Naked Giants. “I love touring,” Gallo says. “For me, the live show is the most alive and in-the-moment place on Earth. There is no time to overanalyze, and I just let things unfold in some sort of controlled chaos and surrender to what seems right in the present moment.” Please see below for full tour details.
Prior to the album’s release, Vice’s music site Noisey premiered it in its entirety and stated that HEAVY META “is Fun and Dark and Garage and Psychedelic and Nice as Hell.” Read their Q&A with Gallo HERE. NPR Musicpreviously premiered the video for his single “Please Yourself,” which can be seen HERE. On the night of Saturday, November 19th, 2016 Ron, his band, and director Joshua Shoemaker loaded a PA system and bolted their gear to a small wooden stage in the back of a Ford F-150 truck and shot the video in the middle of downtown Nashville’s busiest intersection. Shot entirely in one take, NPR Music stated “In the spoken-word manifesto Gallo delivers before jumping on the truck, he raises an eyebrow at his generation for creating legacies that add up to no more than ‘an impressive collection of digital remarks.’ Gallo’s noisy tricksterism is designed to counter such surface stuff. He succeeded for three-minutes plus on Lower Broadway; this kid, the video portends, can and might do anything.” Additionally, American Songwriter premiered the video for the album track “Kill The Medicine Man,” which can be seen HERE, while Brooklyn Vegan premiered the first video from the record for “Young Lady, You’re Scaring Me” HERE.
Ron Gallo HEAVY META Track Listing: 
1. Young Lady, You’re Scaring Me
2. Put The Kids To Bed
3. Kill The Medicine Man
4. Poor Traits Of The Artist
5. Why Do You Have Kids
6. Please Yourself
7. Black Market Eyes
8. Can’t Stand You
9. Started A War
10. Don’t Mind The Lion
11. All The Punks Are Domesticated

The Jesus Lizard confirm appearance at Houston's Day For Night Festival in December

Photo by Joshua Black Wilkins

The Jesus Lizard have have announced they will perform for the first time in eight years with an appearance during the Day For Night Festival happening in Houston,TX December 15 - 17.  More information on the festival is available here and tickets are here

"Seminal" and "legendary" are two overused press release words we try to avoid.  But for the uninitiated and for those looking for easy answers, they both accurately describe the Jesus Lizard.  Since their inception in late-80s Austin, the band has been an influence on countless rock bands that followed.  Pitchfork notes, "the Jesus Lizard raised a bar that few bands have reached since...Rarely does a band have each member adding something essential to such a united, ferocious whole."  Live, the Jesus Lizard are matchless - Stereogum have called them "one of the greatest live bands ever" and The New York Times has used the words "extravagantly good" while Rolling Stone speaks of the band's "shattering live performances." Their debut albumHead was released in 1990 by Touch and Go and before they officially broke up in 1999 they had released five more LPs - the final being 1998's Blue.  During that time they toured endlessly and released not only the critically acclaimed studio LPs but also assorted singles, EPs, compilations and a live album.  

2008 saw the band regroup and the following year they toured the world with dates that included a slot at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago and All Tomorrow's Parties in the UK and New York.  The Jesus Lizard have not played together live since 2009.   The Jesus Lizard are David Yow (vox), Duane Denison (guitar), David Wm. Sims (bass) and Mac McNeilly (drums).

William Patrick Corgan Announces Pillbox, A Silent Film Set To Music From Forthcoming Solo Album Ogilala




Los Angeles, CA - September 20, 2017 - GRAMMY® Award winning, acclaimed singer-songwriter and Smashing Pumpkins frontman, William Patrick Corgan today announced Pillbox, a silent film set to music from his highly-anticipated forthcoming Rick Rubin produced solo album Ogilala, due out October 13, 2017 via BMG. Corgan today also shared the film's official trailer which can be seen HERE.

"I thought it was a different approach to listening to an album, to watch it in essence with a related, albeit non-linear, silent movie. Art is art. And together the two pieces create a work unto itself," shared Corgan on the film's connection to his new album.

Inspired by a hero's journey, Pillbox was written by Corgan, and directed by Corgan alongside longtime collaborator Linda Strawberry. The film is a Strawberry-Blank Assassin Production and stars: Harry Holmes, Rai Quartley, Anna Steers, Kalpana Pot, Hardeep Manak, Los Angela, Paul Seroka, Amelya Hensley, and Ike Catcher.

Corgan today also announced four intimate screenings of the film in London, Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York. Tickets for the screenings will go on sale at this Friday, September 22 at 11:00am PT and will be available HERE. Fans who attend the screenings will receive a limited edition movie poster.

Pillbox Screenings
October 5 - London, UK. Royal Society of Arts *
October 9 - Los Angeles, CA. Los Feliz Theatre +
October 11 - Chicago, IL. Music Box Theatre #
October 12 - New York, NY. Tribeca Screening Room #

*Appearance by Corgan
#Appearances by Corgan and co-director, Linda Strawberry
+Appearances by co-director, Linda Strawberry and select cast members
Corgan announced Ogilala last month and shared its striking first track "Aeronaut", which is available now HERE and in all DSPs. Produced by Rick Rubin and recorded at Shangri La studios in Malibu, Ogilala presents Corgan's distinctive vocals and melodies across a sparse, but rich palette of acoustic guitar, piano, and strings.

The media was quick to praise the sound of "Aeronaut", hailing, "The song itself is unfussy and intimate and, more importantly, Corgan owns the performance with his inimitable voice that few in the '90s would have figured for a romantic lead" (NPR), "'Aeronaut' is stately and bare: an unhurried piano riff outlines both beat and melody, while glinting strings occasionally rise to meet the keening, nasal lead vocal from Corgan" (Rolling Stone), "['Aeronaut'] is dominated by dramatic strings, piano, and, of course, his unmistakable vocals-which still sound pretty great" (Noisey).

Ogilala will be available digitally as well as physically on CD and 180 gram gatefold vinyl. A limited edition opaque blue vinyl will be available directly from Corgan's web store and a limited edition pink vinyl will be available at select indie retailers. The albumis available for pre-order now HERE. Fans who pre-order the album will receive an immediate download of "Aeronaut".

Next month, Corgan will embark on a solo acoustic North American tour that kicks off on October 14th in Brooklyn, NY and wraps up on November 12th in Los Angeles, CA with a four night stint at the Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. These intimate performances will see Corgan perform songs from Ogilala, as well as a second set which will span works from his earliest days through his years as the frontman of The Smashing Pumpkins and beyond. A complete list of tour dates and ticket information can be found HERE.

William Patrick Corgan is a singer, songwriter, producer, and frontman of celebrated alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins. Formed in Chicago, IL in 1988, the band released their heralded debut album Gish in 1991 and found mainstream success with 1993's 4x multi-platinum Siamese Dream and 1995's 10x multi-platinum Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. Following the band's 2000 dissolution, Corgan helmed the alternative rock band Zwan before releasing his debut solo album TheFutureEmbrace and reforming The Smashing Pumpkins in 2005. With over 30 million albums sold, the GRAMMY®, MTV VMA, and American Music Award winning band remains an influential force in alternative rock.

Arts Documentary EXTRAORDINARY ORDINARY PEOPLE Opens December 1 in LA


A Music-Fueled Journey Through Folk and Traditional Arts in America

Opening Los Angeles on December 1 at Laemmle's Music Hall
First Run Features is proud to announce the Los Angeles opening of Extraordinary Ordinary People, a sweeping celebration of the cultures of the world living and thriving in the United States. The feature-length documentary, directed by longtime filmmaker and folklorist Alan Govenar, opened in New York in September to terrific reviews.

At a time when the existence of the National Endowment for the Arts has never been more threatened, Govenar's documentary focuses on one of its least known and most enduring programs: the National Heritage Fellowship, awarded annually since 1982. Featuring a breathtaking array of men and women who have been awarded the fellowship, including musicians, dancers, quilters, woodcarvers and more, the film demonstrates the importance of the folk and traditional arts in shaping the fabric of America. From Bill Monroe and B.B. King to Passamaquoddy basket weavers and Peking Opera singers; from Appalachia and the mountains of New Mexico to the inner city neighborhoods of New York, the suburbs of Dallas, and the isolated Native American reservations of Northern California – each of the artists share exceptional talent, ingenuity, and perseverance.

Govenar began documenting the artists more than 35 years ago. The enormous breadth of his project, which also includes two 52-part radio series for NPR and three books, allowed him to explore in great detail the intersection of disparate cultures – many brought to our shores by immigrants over hundreds of years – with America itself. His film gives insights into how cultures endure, and how cultural expressions evolve but at the same time remain true to their roots in our 21st century connected world.

Some of the artists featured in the film include:

Sheila Kay Adams – Culture: Anglo; Tradition: Ballads, Musician, Singer, Storyteller 
Rahim Alhaj – Culture Iraqi; Tradition: Composer, Oud Player 
Loren Bommelyn – Culture: Native American Tolowa; Tradition: Artisan, Dancer, Musician 
Laverne Brackens – Culture: African American; Tradition: Artisan, Quilter 
Charles Carrillo – Culture: Hispanic; Tradition Santero 
Clifton Chenier – Culture: African American, Creole; Tradition: Accordionist, Musician, Zydeco 
Sidiki Conde – Culture: Guinean; Tradition: Dancer, Drummer, Musician 
Sonia Domsch – Culture: Czech; Tradition: Artisan, Lace Maker 
Qi Shu Fang – Culture: Asian, Chinese; Tradition: Peking Opera Performer, Musician 
"Queen" Ida Guillory – Culture: African American, Creole; Tradition: Zydeco, Accordionist
John Lee Hooker – Culture: African American; Tradition: Blues, Guitarist, Musician, Singer 
Wanda Jackson – Culture: Anglo; Tradition: Gospel, Musician, Rockabilly, Singer 
Dolly Jacobs – Culture: Anglo; Tradition: Circus Aerialist 
Flory Jagoda – Culture: Jewish; Tradition: Sephardic Musician 
"Flaco" Jiménez – Culture: Mexican; Tradition: Accordionist, Conjunto, Musician 
Genoa Keawe – Culture: Native Hawaiian; Tradition: Musician, Singer, Ukulele Player 
B.B. King – Culture: African American; Tradition: Blues, Guitarist, Musician, Singer 
Narciso Martinez – Culture: Mexican; Tradition: Accordionist, Conjunto, Musician 
Lydia Mendoza – Culture: Mexican; Tradition: Musician, Singer 
Norma Miller – Culture: African American; Tradition: Dancer, Lindy Hop 
Bill Monroe – Culture: Anglo; Tradition: Bluegrass, Mandolin Player, Musician, Singer 
Alex Moore – Culture: African American; Tradition: Blues, Musician, Pianist, Singer 
Chum Ngek – Culture: Asian, Cambodian; Tradition: Musician 
Clarissa Rizal – Culture:Native American Tlingit; Tradition: Ceremonial Regalia Maker 
Earl Scruggs – Culture: Anglo; Tradition: Banjo Player, Bluegrass, Musician
Dan Sheehy – Folklorist & Former Director of NEA Folk & Traditional Arts; Mariachi Musician
Koko Taylor – Culture: African American; Tradition: Blues, Musician, Singer
Mike Vlahovich – Culture: Croatian; Tradition: Shipwright 
Albertina Walker – Culture: African American; Tradition: Gospel, Musician, Singer

**Filmmaker Alan Govenar will appear in person on opening weekend**

"Enjoyable and enticing! Govenar's knowledge and affection are contagious...he makes his case for the NEA by asking the simple question: What do we value? In his expansive view of American culture, that includes preserving native languages, recognizing the profundity of the blues, and honoring where we came from and what we've made in equal measure."          - Serena Donadoni, The Village Voice

"A celebration of art, survival, and the riches of human experience. This exuberant film makes each art sampled, from oud playing to basket weaving to bobbin lace making, feel indispensable." - Regina Weinreich, Huffington Post

"'Extraordinary Ordinary People' includes footage of some of the most significant artists of the past century, from bluegrass pioneer Bill Monroe to bluesman B.B. King. With budgets for the arts in peril, it couldn't come at a more opportune time."                                      
-Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International

The pieces of original audio are from tapes that Delia made beyond the BBC for later film and theatre projects - the exact details of which remain lost in the mists of time.
