Howlin' Rain

A hearty welcome goes to The Russian Wilds, Howlin Rain's new LP due on Valentine's Day 2012 via American Recordings. Head to the band's site for a new track, "Phantom In The Valley", in exchange for your email address. Or just listen to it below along with the new album's trailer too.

The Russian Wilds will be on display when Howlin Rain hits the road for a string of US dates leading to SXSW which will include NYC twice: Mercury Lounge on 2/7 (tickets) and Brooklyn Bowl on 2/8 (tickets). All dates are listed below.

Both shows, and at least three more on the east coast, will feature "supergroup" Soldiers of Fortune, comprised of Brad Truax (Home), Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Superwolf) and Kid Millions (Oneida). They released a 12" via Mexican Summer. You can listen to the 8+ minute jam "Yes to Everything" below.

Bring back Comets on Fire!

Howlin' Rain rules too though

I'd wondered what they were going to do with all the homeless people after gentrification set in.

Their Facebook says that Howling Rain now includes Isaiah Mitchell from EARTHLESS.

PREPARE TO HAVE YOUR FACE MELTED. Your beard will stay intact.

Anything related to Earthless, Comets on Fire, and Drunkhorse is guaranteed to slay.

Isaiah is on the new album too btw.

Not sure about the Latin breakdown in that song, but otherwise pretty stoked for the howlin rain album. But yeah, a Comets reunion would be nice. Thanks.

I dig Howlin Rain but I feel that it lacks where Comets soared. Maybe that's just because I'm a huge Chasny fan. Btw, if you slept on the Rangda album, definitely check it out NOW! Chasny, Bishop and Corsano destroy together!!
