Merge to release Crooked Fingers' Red Devil Dawn on vinyl!

Vinyl LP available for the first time ever in honor of its 15th anniversary. Both editions feature new cover art and a full-color inner sleeve with lyrics. They also include downloads of the album and the bonus 12-song Red Devil Dawn Demos. Release date is June 29, 2018.

LP: Pressed on black vinyl.

Peak Vinyl: Limited-edition pressing on translucent red vinyl.

     I’ve also finished a new record. Eric Johnson from Archers of Loaf plays guitar on it; Avery Leigh Draut from Night Palace sings all the backing vocals on it; and Liz Durrett sings a duet with me on the title track. It was mixed in Taipei, Taiwan by Andy Baker at the Echoplex, and mastered in Athens, GA by Joel Hatstat. Kindercore Vinyl will press the vinyl. Merge Records is the label. An announcement about the release date is coming soon. Stay tuned.

     One of the smartest, most rewarding musical decisions I ever made was to play in Neko Case's band for the last four years. Although, I had to leave her band last year to spend time with my new born son, I still feel like part of their family. So, I feel compelled to announce that she is putting out a new record on June 1st, 2018. Lucky me... Her/our rendition of Sleep All Summer is one of the tracks on it. Such an honor... Pre-order it here.
