Crystal Stilts & the Girls hit the road with an album.
Before Vivian Girls had a debut, it sold out. The self-titled debut album appeared recently on Mauled By Tigers records in a vinyl-only edition of 500 which sold out before the band had completed their recent three-week US tour. In The Red is picking up the slack with the re-release of this Velvet-rock record in both vinyl and compact disc formats on October 7.
Lou Runs, Jonathan road runs, Jim & William hard walk on sidewalks, and the Vivians question running locations:
Vivian Girls, “Where do you run to”
Vivian Girls are bringing fellow avant-loft rockers Crystal Stilts on tour, creating a revival of Velvet Jesus & Mary Underground Chain Gang (Gang Dance) music on a nightly basis. Why get overcharged to see Lou Reed's corpse on strings when you could listen to two bands that sound close enough for $5? Bargain shopper, please!
Crystal Stilts debut Alight of Night is out October 28 on Slumberland.
