New album from Brian Setzer
Brian Setzer has announced the release of Setzer Goes Instru-mental, his first all instrumental album. It will be available from 16 May on Surfdog Records.
Setzer says of the project: “As a matter of fact I wrote 7 songs with lyrics and then all of a sudden I just took a turn and started fooling around with ‘Blue Moon of Kentucky,’ except without any vocals. I just started playing melody chords and thought, ‘wow, this is pretty cool! So the direction turned about halfway through my writing. I had never done an instrumental record, but I thought, well, now’s the time!”
He has also announced the following dates:
July 24 @ London, UK - London Brixton Academy
July 25 @ Manchester, UK - Manchester Academy
July 27 @ Dublin, Ireland - Vicar Street
