JP, Chrissie, & The Fairground Boys have just confirmed a handful live performances supporting Lucinda Williams to celebrate the launch of their new album, Fidelity!, set for release on August 24th through their own La Mina Records in partnership with Rocket Science Ventures. These performances will feature the band as an acoustic trio – JP Jones, Chrissie Hynde and Fairground Boys guitarist Patrick Murdoch – and will include an intimate concert at the Grammy Museum on August 23rd. A full-band U.S. tour will be announced in the coming weeks.
The album’s first video, for the track, “If You Let Me,” will make its worldwide debut on IFC, in the networks’ “Automat” programming clock, and on IFC.com, on Tuesday, July 27. To view the video online, visit this specially designed web page: www.ifc.com/ifyouletme . The video, inspired by the critically acclaimed 2008 Swedish romantic horror film, Let The Right One In, was directed by Chris Marres Piliero (Black Keys, Eric Hutchinson) in Los Angeles in June.
In addition, JP, Chrissie & The Fairground Boys will turn late night tv upside down on August 11th when they perform their single “If You Let Me,” (available on iTunes August 10th) backed by none other than the The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
