Will Hoge's The Living Room Sessions Out 10/12
The six-song acoustic EP was recorded in only two days in Hoge’s living room and features stripped-down versions of essential songs (“Long Gone,” “Favorite Waste of Time,” “Goodnight/Goodbye,” “Too Late Too Soon” and “Even If It Breaks Your Heart”) from his latest album, THE WRECKAGE, and the fan favorite, “All Night Long,” from Hoge’s 2003 album, BLACKBIRD ON A LONELY WIRE.
“I like acoustic recordings that try to be different from the album versions,” says Hoge. “We just got together and camped out at my house for a couple of days… it’s not a home studio, no real fancy set-up or multi-tracking. The console was a laptop on a card table, and that same table also served simultaneously as the keyboard stand. There were no real overdubs or re-dos or pitch correct. We just did it ‘til we liked it and let it be…not out of laziness, it just seemed to fit.”
Hoge, the relentless road warrior, kicked-off his headlining tour last weekend in Nashville, which will continue through October. He’ll then join rockers Shinedown on their “Anything & Everything” tour kicking-off Nov. 4 in Tampa, Fl. and wrapping up in New Orleans, La. on Dec 9. The tour spans over 25 major cities throughout the Midwest, Southeast and Northeast regions of the United States. More dates will be announced shortly.

Matt White's It's The Good Crazy Out NOW

Bill Hicks' Essential Collection Out NOW
Bill Hicks' new box set, The Essential Collection, is available in stores today. The 2 CD/2 DVD set encompasses Bill's short but influential career as a satirist, social critic and stand-up comedian.
VanityFair.com has an exclusive video clip from The Essential Collection in which a 19 year old Bill performs at the Comix Annex in Houston, TX. Bill Hicks’ extraordinary social commentary is as fresh and stunning today as it was in the 80‘s and 90’s. He engaged his audiences by confronting mainstream beliefs and hypocrisy in a manner that provoked thought as well as laughter. Bill called himself “Chomsky with dick jokes” and The New Yorker described him as an “exhilarating comic thinker in a renegade class all his own.” Bill’s career was short in span, but powerful in impact.
