A.A. BONDY: WHEN THE DEVIL’S LOOSE IN STORES TODAY

A.A. Bondy’s sophomore album, When The Devil’s Loose, hits stores today as he readies to embark on an eight-date, full band headlining tour that kicks off September 8th in Boston, MA, and ends September 16th in Athens, GA.

Praise for the album has just begun to roll out both on newsstands and across the Web. While Spin also commented on Bondy’s “gorgeous melodies, vivid imagery, and haunting voice”, The Onion remarked, “When The Devil’s Loose showcases a resolve and relief Bondy’s never evinced before, as if he’s raked his hand through the sands of these spooky songs and transformed the grains that stuck into flawed, captivating pearls”. The blog Captain Obvious additionally raved “…Bondy is still singing the blues, and he’s doing it better than almost anyone. Highly recommended listening.”

When The Devil’s Loose has started getting early adds from influential radio stations as well, such as KCMP in Minneapolis, MN, KUT in Austin, TX, and XM Satellite Radio, among others. Album track “I Can See The Pines Are Dancing”, which recently premiered on Entertainment Weekly’s Music Mix blog, is available for download here.

Following his September tour, Bondy will head overseas with The Felice Brothers in October before returning to the U.S. for a three-week tour with Elvis Perkins in Dearland in November. Full itinerary below.
