Having already premiered “Drugstore Cowboy”, the new single from John Dear, an awesome two-piece from Lausanne, Switzerland, we’re absolutely stoked to be exclusively premiering the duo’s new album out on April 5, 2019.
Talking to PureGrainAudio about the album, the band said: “This record is the picture of a moment. The spiritual crisis of John Dear, beautiful loser and mad dog, questioning the inverted values of our world. If fools can be president, why wouldn’t John be a guru? A wild spiritual leader for all the Drugstore Cowboys out there. This record is a picture of a moment, as faithful and raw as possible. The picture of 10 days spent in a studio recording songs live, learning to accept and cherish the imperfections that come in the spur of the moment, that special balance between controlling and letting go which is, in a way, the essence of rock and roll.
This record is a picture, a picture of 20 + years of unaltered friendship between John W. Dear and Alma June, always ready for new adventures and pockets full of road songs.
This is record is the picture of a moment, and it looks forward to meeting your ears.”
Drugstore Cowboy is the duo’s sophomore record, produced by Chris Turpin (Ida Mae, ex-Kill It Kid) and mixed by Mark Rains (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Rival Sons), and can be ordered via Irascible Music.
