Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band released a new album, touring (dates & streams)

by Andrew Sacher

Chris Forsyth

Chris Forsyth and the Solar Motel Band put out their new 5-song LP, Intensity Ghost, this week via No Quarter records. Pulling equally from The Grateful Dead’s jams and Television’s guitar workouts on Marquee Moon, Chris and the band know how to get into a groove, but they’re never just aimlessly jamming. Stream two tracks, including the 11-minute “The Ballad of Freer Hollow,” below.

They’ll be celebrating the new album with release shows in NYC and Philly followed by a tour. The NYC show happens Sunday (11/2) at Baby’s All Right with support from Zachary Cale and VBA. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
