Dressy Bessy Announce More Tour Date, Brooklyn Vegan Premieres Music Video

Dressy Bessy-Tammy Ealom, John McDowell Hill and Craig Gilbert-announce more tour dates in support of Fast Faster Disaster out June 14. Kicking off a seven-date run May 17, at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, GA, with Filthy Friends, the band will play two Denver release shows-June 14-15 at the legendary Lion's Lair- followed by more dates with Potty Mouth and Colleen Green throughout July and August. A full list of dates is below.

Today, Brooklyn Vegan premiered the video for "Tiny Lil Robots" (watch/share), the album's second single. Of the track, band member Tammy Eaolm shares, "Inspired my first woman to woman rift with my grown daughter written from first and second person at the same time. Me to her, her to me."

The song appears on the Denver-based indie rock band's seventh studio album, and second for Yep Roc Records, which comes as the band celebrates their 20th anniversary of their first album. Produced and engineered by Ealom and Hill and recorded at their home studio, the 12-track set features engaging new tunes like "It's Not That Hard," "Fearless," "Cheer Up Teardrop" and "Stay True" that reflect on universal emotional foibles with the same pointed insight that Ealom is known for.

"I think this is our best album yet," Tammy assesses. "There's an undeniable sense of honesty and freedom to it, lyrically and sonically, and it came with a humbling ease. We pay close attention to current events, including politics, and have been profoundly impacted by the recent climate. There's nothing like the threat of losing your basic freedomsand realizing the fragility of democracy to open up your eyes and pull you out of your personal bubble. More than ever, we've come to embrace the importance of family, friends and community."

Dressy Bessy have released six studio albums -Pink Hearts Yellow Moons (1999), SoundGoRound (2002), Dressy Bessy (2003), Electrified (2005), Holler and Stomp (2008) and KINGSIZED (2016). Additionally, California EP (2000), Little Music (singles compilation, 2003), various compilations and singles.
