New EP's, tours, re-presses... we have it all

Hey there! We've got a ton of news to get to, so here goes...

Collective Confusion Records to release debut EP by The Bothers

Here at Collective Confusion we love our friends, so it is with extreme excitement that I can officially announce that we will be teaming up with our buds in The Bothers to release their debut 7" EP! I really love this EP and I think you will too - if you're into Murder By Death, Chuck Berry, The Avett Brothers, rockabilly, Gary Clark Jr, or your dancing shoes, you'll dig these guys. You can hear the EP for FREE right here.

The Brooklyn based four-piece have started to make a name for themselves through their frenetic live shows playing a distinct blend of blues, rockabilly, surf and garage rock to create a sound that is both evocative of the past and unique to the present. In the summer of 2012, The Bothers were featured on Adrian Grenier’s and were among the few groups chosen to be on their recent Holiday sampler CD. 

If you're in the New York City area, come say hello and check out The Bothers at their upcoming dates: 

Sunday, January 27th - Pianos
Thursday, January 31st - Spike Hill
Wednesday, February 13th - Bowery Electric

These will be extremely limited with artwork designed by members of the band and hand numbered. Pressing info to come - there will be a few different variants, possibly a show-only color, etc. So be on the lookout for that.

John Nolan is heading out on a solo tour (w/ SPECIAL GUESTS)

You can pick up tickets for John's solo tour through the mid-Atlantic and tri-state area below. He'll be playing solo tunes as well as a few Straylight songs, and will have some special guests each night. A few more dates may be announced later, so keep in touch with John @THEjohnnolan for the most up to date information.

Tuesday, March 12 - The Barbary, Philadelphia, PA TICKETS
Wednesday, March 13 - Maxwells, Hoboken, NJ TICKETS
Sunday, March 17 - The Knitting Factory (w/ Brian Bonz), Brooklyn, NY TICKETS

I will for sure be at the Knitting Factory - so you guys should come out!

Cassino Kingprince Repress

Yes, this is happening. The first press long gone and I've been getting emails left and right about more copies - so we've teamed up with the guys at Cassino again and a few like minded labels to pull another pressing together. There will be a few new colors, different jackets, new center labels - I'll let you know about all that stuff as it gets closer to release.

Back Catalog Sale Still Going On!
