New York City's Daddy Long Legs' new single ‘Silver Satin’ is out now, new album ‘Street Sermons’ is out in March, and Ireland / UK Tour Dates are announced for May/June!
On Friday, Daddy Long Legs, New York City‘s most diabolical Rhythm & Blues street gang, shared their new track “Silver Satin” from their upcoming and eagerly anticipated new album ‘Street Sermons‘, to be released on March 17th via Yep Roc Records. The band are also thrilled to announce a full tour in May and June where they’ll be bringing their high-voltage street sermons to venues up and down the UK
The group describes new single “Silver Satin” as an experience where “we take the listener on a trip through New York City’s underground rail system with a bottle in hand concealed by a brown paper bag. Lose yourself in a song dripping with tremolo and electric piano, but whatever you do, don’t fall asleep on the subway.”
The group previously released the track ‘Street Sermon‘ which sees the band beseeching their troubled congregation to “Work with one another/Not against each other” as the Brooklyn band evolve into a chain gang that sounds like they’re emanating through the cracks of a hot and sticky subway station.
Their fourth studio album represents a wellspring of bottled-up feelings and emotions that need to be taken to the streets. Produced by Oakley Munson of The Black Lips at Old Soul Studios in Catskill, NY the band expands upon a sound that’s all their own and features guest appearances from Punk Rock legend Wreckless Eric providing backing vocals on ‘Nightmare‘ and ‘Silver Satin‘ and The Lovin’ Spoonful‘s John Sebastian on ‘Ding-Ding Man‘. In dark times Daddy Long Legs continue to shine their light everywhere they go, leaving a piece of themselves on stage every night because it’s in them and it’s got to come out.
Daddy Long Legs’ previous album, ‘Lowdown Ways‘ (Yep Roc, 2019), reached #4 on the Billboard Blues Chart. Over the last decade these gentlemen have burned down houses the world over with their explosive fire ceremony and have amassed a cult-like following all their own with a tough-to-beat reputation for being one of the finest live acts on the road today. Written and recorded against a backdrop of political tension, riots in the streets and a deeply uncertain future, ‘Street Sermons‘ is a testament to triumph over adversity.
