Tumbledown to release a video for their new single
PRE-ALBUM RELEASE EXCLUSIVES WITH ALTPRESS.COM, FUSE.TV AND SHOCKHOUND.COM
New Album Empty Bottle Due Out October 26
Los Angeles, CA, October 20, 2010 – Bremerton, WA-based alt-country/rockabilly band, Tumbledown will premiere the video for their first single, “Arrested In El Paso” from their sophomore album, Empty Bottle, on Thursday, October 21 through their official website, www.tumbledownhq.com starting at 3pm PST/6 pm EST.
As most can envision from the title, and in true outlaw fashion, Tumbledown’s brush with the law is now on record. What started as a simple trip through El Paso on tour, instead turned convoluted a little over a year ago. Each band member, frontman and guitarist Mike Herrera (MxPx, Arthur), guitarist Jack Parker, standup bassist Marshall Trotland and drummer Harley Trotland, were arrested and questioned, with the band barely making it to Dallas, their next tour stop. The video was directed by Chris Crary, whom Herrera has worked with in the past, most notably behind the helm of MxPx’s “Gimme Christmas” video. It was produced by Crary, Mark Nashif and Herrera.
Starting today, Shockhound.com is offering Tumbledown fans an exclusive bundle. For less than $20, fans can purchase a Tumbledown T-shirt, download of the album and an autographed poster through http://www.shockhound.com/collections/tumbledown. Also available today exclusively on Fuse.tv is a free download of “Places In This Town”, which can be found at, http://www.fuse.tv/music/free-music.html?artist_id=451. And this Friday, October 22 as a final promo, Altpress.com will unveil the album’s title track, “Empty Bottle” exclusively on their website.
The music of Tumbledown takes that sepia-tinged image of Americana and sends it hurtling into the present, with the help of some punk-inflected riffs and pure rock & roll attitude. A follow-up to their self-titled album released last year, Empty Bottle offers an image of Americana that’s as true, tragic, tumultuous, and tantalizing. You can call it alt-country if you want to, or even outlaw country, but for all the six-string twang and hell-bent two-steps that tumble out of these tunes, you can’t discount the pure rock & roll power Tumbledown brings to the table either.
Empty Bottle will be released nationally on October 26 via End Sounds. In support of the album, Tumbledown will be heading out on a one-month tour starting on October 30 in Bremerton, WA with a Halloween-themed CD release party at Winterland and will last through November.
