Red Dons – Auslander 7″ + The Estranged/Red Dons tour.
Dropping this one in the schedule kinda last minute, but Aug 14th will see the release of The Red Dons – Auslander 7″. A LOONNNGGG time in the making (We had plans to do a release with this band since their very beginning, maybe even before they played a show, I don’t remember.), this 7″ finds the Red Dons at their most straightforward, melodic, and powerful. The A side in particular might be their best song yet.
2 new tracks, written in 2010-2011 between Chicago, Brazil, London, Portland, and Hamburg, recorded in Sweden in a cold war era bomb shelter during a 2011 European tour by Lars Ekman (Hanna Hirsch, Förmögenhet). All copies come with download code.
But that’s not all! Following the release of this 7″, The Red Dons will be hitting the road with Dirtnap recording artists The Estranged for their first US tour in awhile. Here are the dates:
