Ok, so this is probably the most exciting news that I've heard the past couple of days. Bear with me--Cory Branan, a singer/songwriter that I consider to be one of the greatest lyricists of our generation, has JUST posted a brand new song titled "The No-Hit Wonder" off his JUST ANNOUNCED album of the same new. PHEW!
The song is being hosted on Noisey, so click through to listen to it. "The No-Hit Wonder" is set to be released August 19th via Bloodshot Records
Not lost in the excitement of the new album and song announcement/premiere, are a run of tour dates in the South and East Coast. I can only hope (PLEAAAASE) that he'll venture out to the wild, wild west shortly after. We'll keep you updated! Dates below!
