Without a doubt, it’s been a long and restless summer. After months touring the U.S., Aloud took a bit of a breather to regroup, write some new tunes, and enjoy being home for a spell.
Now that’s all behind us, we’re pleased as Punch to announce Aloud’s new single “The Cash and the Pearls” will be out this November on Lemon Merchant Records. The digital-only single will be coupled with the exclusive b-side track “So Long” and features artwork by Erin Genett. Original Aloud member and current stick man for The Painted Lights, Ross Lohr, makes a guest appearance behind the kit.
Aloud will premiere “The Cash and the Pearls” next Tuesday, September 13, for Annie’s Rock n’ Roll Birthday at Great Scott with Sarah RabDAU & Self-Employed Assassins, and Guillermo Sexo. (By the by: those fancy new Exile t-shirts will be on sale at this show.)
“The Cash and the Pearls” and “So Long” were both recorded/engineered/mixed by our very own Charles Murphy, who also produced with the band. The tracks were once again mastered by Jeff Lipton and Maria Rice at Peerless Mastering.
In support of “The Cash and the Pearls”, Aloud is embarking on another string of dates at the end of September. The yet-to-be-named tour (feel free to join the open discussion on that on Facebook) will serve as the oft alluded to third leg of the Exile tour.
A brief listing of dates is posted below. Full details are posted in Performances.
Dates in Baltimore and Buffalo are currently being worked out. Keep checking back here or follow Aloud on Twitter (@aloudonline), as we expect to have details in the next couple of weeks!
Following the tour, the gang are planning something very special in Boston to celebrate the release of “The Cash and the Pearls”.
