There was some good news reported last week about the new album by Bambara but now there’s a small bit of bad news, and it’s only a small bit. Originally they were going to release Swarm (Arrowhead) on March 4th but they have pushed it to another month, so rub out that date and replace it with April 1st.

In that article posted last week, I also showed how they’ll be at this year’s SXSW and now they’ve released more dates for their tour, including more specifics about where they’ll be at SXSW. Please take a glance:

If you’re a fan of Bambara, I have some very good news for you:

1) The band have recorded, mixed, and mastered an album called Swarm (Arrowhawk) and it will be released very soon: March 4th. You can pre-order it now directly from the label.

2) The Brooklyn band will have an album release show a week before its release at Palisades, and will be joined by Hubble, Pill, and The Men. They then will show a show in Atlanta in March while on their way towards Austin, Texas for this year’s SXSW. Check your coordinates:

February 25… Brooklyn, NY (Palisades) @

VIDEO: Ceramic Dog’s “Lies My Body Told Me”

The dirty, the sleazy, the raw, the ugly: sometimes when you want really good raunch’n’roll, you have to dig deeper than you have ever done before. Ceramic Dog understands what you’re looking for, which is why they’re supplying it directly to you and other consumers. “Lies My Body Told Me” is about being in denial of what you’re feeling, but you end up saying “eh, fuck it”.

Saying “fuck it” is Marc Ribot, who heads Ceramic Dog alongside Ches Smith and Shahzad Ismaily, and they’re trying something that may not be new, but it’s needed for the now people who find everything too old and musty. This is dusty yet trusty, and as a trio they will be playing a small string of shows in Japan this week before returning to the U.S. for a few other performances. Don’t believe me? Proof:

May 1… Tokyo, Japan (Club Quattro)
May 2… Nagoya, Japan (Club Quattro)
May 3… Umeda, Japan (Club Quattro)
May 5… New York, NY (Le Poisson Rouge) *
May 27… Chicago, IL (Pritzker Pavilion) @
May 28… Chicago, IL (Constellation)

* w/ Hubble
@ w/ Lee Ranaldo

The album is called Your Turn (Northern Spy) and will you listen to it? You should, as it is your turn to check them, which you’re able to do when the album is released on April 30th.
