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.
