Bonnie “Prince” Billy to Release Beware, His “Most Ambitious” LP to Date

Hey, girls, you can stop making food in the kitchen and washing clothes now -- boys, stop playing with your nuts: Bonnie "Prince" Billy is back on the attack! On March 17, Drag City will release a brand new album, Beware, which is being described as his "most ambitious" by his publicist. In fact, the press release is all kinds of colorful:

- "It blooms in low light and cold but thrives in the sun as well, showing enticing spots and eating small creatures as they wander into its jaws."
- "Where fiddle and steel contribute their rustic timbre alongside guitars and voices, a thickening thud of low tone rolls beneath, giving the record a bottom that’s fun to watch bounce in new clothes."
- "Song titles suggest half of a heated dialogue, perhaps just one side of a super-apocalypto phone call."
- "Sometimes all you want to do is f**k."

How come press releases are so well-written nowadays? Can't we go back to when they were like, "This album will blow you out of the water!!" and "This is sure to be a classic album!"?

Anyway, Beware sees The Old Ham playing with his regular band (Josh Abrams, Jennifer Hutt, Emmett Kelly and Michael Zerang) along with special guests ranging from Leroy Bach to Rob Mazurek. A tour is expected around the time of its release. But it's not like you care, you fucking loser! Go back to your own country, jerkoff!

11.21.08 - Lexington, KY - Old Tarr Distillery (Save Kentucky's Hemlocks)
11.27.08 - Sao Paulo, Brazil - Studio SP
