On July 22nd The Jim Reynolds Band will issue their long-awaited new album Glitter Bomb! Getting the release treatment via Vow Records, the full-length follows the Los Angeles, Californian band’s 2013 outings De los Muertos and La Rana, plus 2016’s Perfect for Listening. With a record release show slated for July 26th at the Old Towne Pub in Pasadena, CA, what better time than now to preview Glitter Bomb in its entirety!?

The album’s eight tracks sparkle and songwriter/bandleader Jim Reynolds shines bright, maybe even more so than on past tunes which, if you didn’t know, have landed film and television features including Sons of Anarchy, Franklin and Bash, and Embrace of the Vampire. With drummer Brian Hobart, bassist Leif Banting by his side, Jim and his bandmates continue to deliver solid indie/folk rock that will appeal to a wide array of music fans.

Commenting on the new release’s overall feel, Jim happily sent over the following thoughts:

“‘Glitter Bomb’ is at times traditional, experimental, pop, RnB, country and psychedelic. I extracted elements from many different influences from my musical and creative journey to make this record – and yet, the cohesion of the music as a whole has a distinct ‘Jim Reynolds Band’ vibe that can’t really be identified by any one genre (or three). Diverse, perfect for dancing and listening and ideal for warm summers, ‘Glitter Bomb’ is streaming sparkles on all digital platforms.”
