TUNE Jesse Malin - 'You KNow It's Dark When Atheists Start to Pray'
*You Know It's Dark When Atheists Start to Pray*
One Little Indian Single released October 9th [Cat. No. 1295TP7DL}
Fresh off the heels of New York Before The War, Jesse Malin returns with his latest album, Outsiders and a new single You Know It's Dark When Atheists Start to Pray, both released via One Little Indian on October 9th.
Born out of late night recording sessions in the Pennsylvania woods with producer Don DiLego, far from any expectations, Outsiders presents Jesse Malin in his rawest form yet. Malin himself describes it as "a record built out of optimism and disgust - one for the leavers, the believers, the hustlers and the chicken hawks who could never catch us."
Last seen in the UK supporting The Replacements at The Roundhouse, Jesse will be back in the UK & Ireland in September playing dates as an acoustic duo:
Tues 8 Belfast Mchughs, UK
Wed 9 Dublin Academy 2, Eire
Thurs 10 Galway Roisin Dubh, Eire
Fri 11 Cork Cyrus Avenue, Eire
Sun 13 Cardiff Clwb Ifor Bach, UK
The collection includes Here's The Situation, featuring J Masics on guitar, and a cover of The Clash’s Stay Free – especially poignant because Jesse first played it at Ryan Adam’s guitarist, Johnny McNabb’s memorial last year. The lead-off single (also October 2nd) will be You Know It's Dark When Atheists Start to Pray, an upbeat romp well equipped with "brass in pocket."
“It’s autobiographical to the point where I even visit my own funeral!” says Jesse (laughs). We all made a deal to stay off the phone and the net during the making of this record, and it felt good to just live in the moment - we just let it roll.”
