The Horrible Crowes Announce Live Debut In NYC and LA
THE HORRIBLE CROWES CONFIRM LIVE DEBUT AT
NYC’S BOWERY BALLROOM (9/8) AND
LA’S TROUBADOUR (9/14)
The Horrible Crowes-fronted by The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon and longtime friend Ian Perkins-will perform their first live shows in September, unveiling their debut album ‘Elsie’ in its entirety at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC 9/8 and The Troubadour in LA 9/14. For the shows, Fallon and Perkins will be joined by drummer Steve Sidelnyk, who performs on the record, along with Gaslight Anthem guitarist Alex Rosamilia, who will play keyboards, and bassist Frank Marra.
“With the Horrible Crowes it’s more of a theater vibe,” Fallon explains of the difference between his new band and The Gaslight Anthem. “It’s something to be digested, not something to shock you into excitement like a big rock and roll show. I would almost look at it more as if you were going to a theater to see a show for the evening.”
The Horrible Crowes’ first single, “Behold the Hurricane,” has already jumped out to a strong start at U.S. radio, with Philadelphia’s WXPN and Seattle’s KMTT embracing the song. Rolling Stone premiered the “cinematic” track earlier this month: http://bit.ly/oUgqMQ.
The Horrible Crowes were born last year out of late-night musical bonding sessions on the road between Fallon and Perkins. Their mutual love of songwriters like Tom Waits, PJ Harvey, Afghan Whigs, and Joan As Police Woman led to writing and recording sessions that turned out decidedly unlike either’s previous work. Drum loops, subdued guitars, and orchestrated piano and string arrangements accompany Fallon’s most personal lyrics to date.
More tour dates will be announced shortly.
