Daniel Bachman flees the USA to lay low and strum his guitar in Europe for a while
...until TMT totally blows his cover!

Daniel Bachman, our resident favorite enfant terrible of American Primitive guitar, clearly wants to avoid something at home for the next few months (maybe his mum is hassling him to clear out the garage, or maybe he’s got an overdue library book and wants to lay low for a while — who knows?) and has duly announced a very extensive tour around Europe (beginning later this week), which will keep him way off the USA’s grid until May.

Luckily for Bachman, he’s got a still-fresh album called Daniel Bachman to promote while he’s over there, which TMT called “humble and intense.” Additionally, he’ll be kept company on his epic journey by like-minded guitar-scraper Jake Xerxes Fussell (who is about to drop an album of his own).

What crazy shenanigans can two young Americana revivalists get up to as they make their way through what looks like almost every city in Europe? Only time can tell… but I feel a kooky TV sitcom coming on (and its theme song is totally Bachman’s “Farther Along,” for which you can watch the video down below).
