CJ Ramone releasing LP ft. Big Eyes & Mariachi El Bronx members, touring
CJ Ramone (Ramones bassist from 1989 - 1996) is releasing a followup to his 2014 solo album Last Chance To Dance, American Beauty, on March 17 via Fat Wreck Chords. Once again, his band included Adolescents members Dan Root and Steve Soto on this album, and it also included Street Dogs' Pete Sosa. The album's also got contributions from Big Eyes singer Kait Eldridge and the horn section of Mariachi El Bronx. We're premiering "Moral to the Story," which is a nice dose of CJ's classic-style punk. Listen below.
CJ is going on Flogging Molly's St. Patrick's Day cruise, and he's got other tour dates coming up too. One of those happens in NYC on album release day at Bowery Electric (3/17). Tickets for that show are on sale now.
In related news, Dez Cadena (who's played with CJ before) is playing NYC on 4/20 at Union Hall with The Slants and Asterplace. Tickets are on sale.
