“I was born in Chicago. The kind of place that lives in your blood and bones,” reflects Chris McCaughan when discussing his new album, Neon Fiction. As we gear up to release Neon Fiction next Tuesday, you can get into the vibe by watching the lyric video for “Life in the Embers” below. SUNDOWNER describes it as “a song of acceptance, of coming to terms with things you can’t change, of a past you can’t alter.” And if you’re lucky enough to be in the San Francisco Bay Area next week, come see SUNDOWNER perform at the Fat warehouse on Friday, Sept. 6 and then attend the record release show at Bottom of the Hill on Saturday, Sept. 7.
We are very sad to report the passing of Bad Astronaut’s drummer, Erik Herzog, an exceptionally talented musician and lifelong member of the Santa Barbara music scene. Our deepest condolences to Erik’s family and to our friends in Bad Astronaut: Joey, Marko, Todd, Angus, and Thom.
