The Felice Brothers have announced a new run of tour dates in the US, Australia, and New Zealand this spring, beginning in late March following a March 19th performance with Bright Eyes at Auditorium Shores during this year's SXSW festival in Austin, TX.

The first leg of the tour will kick off on March 25th at the Oneonta Theater in Oneonta, NY, and lead The Felice Brothers to Indio, CA, where they will make their debut appearance at the already sold-out Coachella festival on April 16th. The band will then travel to Australia and New Zealand for the first time, touring down under from April 20th through 24th to play shows that include Boogie Fest in Melbourne, AUS, and the Grassroots Festival in Auckland, NZL. The Felice Brothers will resume their US tour on April 28th at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, CA, and continue through May 6th at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, IL, with more dates to be confirmed shortly. Tickets for the US shows will begin to go on sale tomorrow, February 10th; for more information, please visit www.thefelicebrothers.com.

Earl Greyhound Premiere Ghost And The Witness

EARL GREYHOUND is pleased to announce the release of Suspicious Package, a blistering
rock inferno spun out of the Brooklyn trio’s inspired and innovative
rock-n-roll imagination machine.  Suspicious Package was recorded at Red Bull Studios in Santa Monica, under the nimble and keen producerly auspices of Dave Schiffman (Mars Volta, Red Hot Chili Peppers, System of a Down).


Earl Greyhound formed in 2002 with the collaboration of songwriters Matt Whyte and Kamara Thomas, who began performing regularly as a duo in NYC. All the while, they were crafting the unique sound and songs that would form the foundation for a colossal rock band. Their influences swept from the strident English three-and four-pieces of the 70’s, to the dark pop and heavy grunge grooves of the 90’s, to the transcendental, noisy acid sounds of modern rock.

In 2005, EG recorded their first album, Soft Targets, but they also hit their first snag when drummer Chris Bear left to pursue his fortunes with the band Grizzly Bear. Reluctant to release the album without a permanent drummer, Matt and Kamara vowed to play relentlessly until their dream drummer found them. Guitar player Kirk Douglass (The Roots) witnessed a show and brought his friend and Gold Crowns band mate Ricc Sheridan to the next few gigs. Ricc says, “I awoke from a dream one night, and I knew this was my band.” A few weeks later, a rockneck-inducing jam confirmed that the band had found its soul mate, and they hit the ground running.  Soft Targets and EG’s wrecking ball of a live show earned them oodles of fans and critical acclaim from The New Yorker, SPIN, Rolling Stone, Brooklyn Vegan and Pitchfork, among others. The next three years were spent touring the US, Canada and Japan as well as opening for Gov’t Mule, Chris Cornell and Saul Williams.


Suspicious Package is Earl Greyhound’s sophomore release. The album marks a turning point in the band’s maturation since the benefit of Mr. Sheridan’s full creative collaboration. Listeners will notice a marked expansion into the higher reaches of the sonic territories. Heavy, dark, groovy and grand—Suspicious Package is a reminder that though ROCK is still only a four-letter word, it can still pack a load of splendor.
