That’s right folks, in our tradition of giving you 2 albums a year, it’s that time again… Ladies and gentlemen, it is our proudest of pleasures to present to you our 6th studio album: The Most Peculiar Thing. And for one day & one day only – 12.21.2012 – this album will be made free for the world.
On this day – when Mayan calenders predict the world will be ending – put the url “dbrs.bandcamp.com” into your browser and download this new album for free! No strings attached! Just good ole fashioned music!
Live in New Orleans? Even better: Come grab a free copy of the album in person – We’ll be playing a CD release party w/ Magnetic Ear at the Blue Nile on Frenchmen Street at 11pm. There’s a Facebook event for it HERE if you would like to rvsp & stay posted with release details.
Here’s a little preview track to wet your appetite:

That’s right folks! Volume Three’s all lacquered up now and ready for (get ready – idea by Jelly) digital pre-order – yes, digital pre-order – on our Dirty Bourbon Bandcamp Site. Get the new songs “Wolfman” and “Legit” off the new album immediately when you place your order:
Broke like us, or simply just don’t feel like pre-ordering?
Stream the songs for free on the DBRS Bandcamp site. Get it later when you’re ready. And don’t forget kids ~ Album drops physically for real real so big so big style 3/30 worldwide and at the Maison in NOLA. Then we’re leaving for a 4 month national tour —————————————————————————————->
Ladies and gentlemen, the polls are in, and it’s official: the people have chosen album cover #3. The second one was close behind, but #3 ended up conquering all in the end.
And so, here it is:
And check out this sweet back traycard we drew up with photo by Paul Chéenne:
Pretty cool, ya? This sweet baby’s droppin’ – disc, lyrics, cellophane & all – March 30th at the Maison here in New Orleans on Frenchmen St. We’re proud to announce that Alex McMurray and friends will be opening the show, and Magnetic Ear will be playing the afterparty. Following the release we’ll be leaving for a four month national tour to support Volume III’s release. Check the sidebar for dates on this tour as they roll in ——>
Thanks everybody who voted for the cover. Even if yours didn’t win, I think you’ll find a little piece of all 3 in the finished product. One month till it’s yours. Until then…
Finally, after 3 1/2 years of waiting, Radiohead will be releasing their 8th full-length studio album this Satuday
Unlike their last album In Rainbows (which is in my opinion their best so far, followed by Ok Computer) fans will not be able to name their own price this time. The new album – titled The King of Limbs – will be available in a variety of priced formats, ranging from $53 for 2 vinyls, cd, artwork & more to $9 for an mp3 digidownload. One lucky buyer will win a signed 2 track vinyl. Fans can view the different price formats and pre-order HERE.
I guess the real question is “will The King of Limbs be as good as In Rainbows?” I guess we’ll find out this Saturday.
