The Posies lean, mean, touring machine has extended it’s return to European shores with additional dates in Spain, promoting their new album Solid States for 3 weeks of shows that also cover the UK, Netherlands and Belgium.

After a triumphant run of dates across Europe in March & April the newly revitalised trio-format band head back to Europe in October, following a 27-date run of secret shows in the US.

The band have always been exploring, growing and 2016 sees them continuing in that vein. None of US shows were in conventional music venues, with the location only revealed to ticket holders not more than 24 hours in advance of each show. The band are now touring as a trio, with no bass player, and Solid States collaborator Frankie Siragusa on drums. New album, Solid States, was not recorded in the usual band-in-a-room manner. Stringfellow and Auer sent song ideas back and forth online, writing and largely recording the album separately – but collaboratively – in their home studios.

The autumn tour now starts in Huelva, Spain, on 20th October, ending on 9th November in Diksmuide, Belgium. Solid States is out now Lojinx CD, digital and heavyweight vinyl LP.

Prolific American songwriter, producer and family man Butch Walker may be unknown to the millions of fans of such artists as Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift, Train and Pink, for example, with whom he has produced hit records for, but to industry insiders he is considered as “the musicians musician.”  And to the adoring fans of the prodigious records created under his own name, Butch Walker is an underground God.

A hidden gem and uncompromising servant to his craft, Butch’s rock and roll fairy tale comes into focus as  directors Peter Harding and Shane Valdes capture key notes in the lyrical life of one of today’s most acclaimed and respected singer-songwriters.

With a non-invasive lens, the directors capture candid footage of the man behind the music, and the glimpses are nothing short of inspiring. From a fly  on the wall of his studio sessions, to the streets and clubs of fan-crazed crowds, to the “trampoline” wisdom of his pre-school son, and when you meet Atlanta’s favorite rock-son’s ailing father “Big Butch,” it is clear where this man found his moral rock.

Butch Walker: Out Of Focus is now available for pre-order in Europe on PAL format DVD that includes bonus footage and outtakes.
