Black Jake & the Carnies (USA): tour begins 28 Apr. 2011

Black Jake & the Carnies (USA) (see the EBB for 20 Mar. 2011) report:

It has been a few years in the making, but our second record, Sundry mayhems, is nearing completion, and is scheduled for European release on 1 May! We are excited to announce that the first single, 'Farmer had him rats', is now available for free download here at our bandcamp page! Also featured on the page and included with the download is a first taste of the full spread original artwork that will ship with the completed album. In addition to the usual lyrics and album credits, the liner notes will include an unique painting for each track done up by Black Jake himself.

Please check it out, and let us know what you think. Then, spread the word however you can, be it Facebook, Twitter, carrier pigeon, or semaphore. Both Sundry mayhems and Where the heather don't grow will be available in Europe from Sonic Rendezvous!
