Los Straitjackets To Release 'Complete Christmas Songbook' 10/19

Over the course of their three-decade career, Nashville's Los Straitjackets have established themselves as America's premier surf rock group. While the band has a handful of albums that range from covers of surf rock staples to slamming originals, Los Straitjackets have released various Christmas albums and singles to much critical acclaim. Yep Roc Records has compiled every holiday song the band has ever recorded into one Los Straitjackets collection, Complete Christmas Songbook. The compilation is available for pre-order HERE.

The pre-order for the LP and CD includes a six-ornament bundle, with each of the five members of Los Straitjackets' masks graced upon an ornament and a bonus ornament of a guitar. The CD and digital for Complete Christmas Songbook will be available worldwide on October 19, 2018, with the LP worldwide release on December 7, 2018.

The brand-new collection compiles the entirety of two Los Straitjackets Christmas albums (2002's 'Tis the Season for Los Straitjackets and 2009's limited edition Yuletide Beat), a limited edition 45 single (2011's Hark the Herald Angels Sing b/w Silver Bells), a song from Yep Roc's 2007 Oh Santa! compilation, and the live version of "Linus & Lucy" from the band's 2015 tour with Nick Lowe. Los Straitjackets' Christmas material has reached audiences around the globe since Conan O'Brien would bring the band onto Late Night with Conan O'Brien every holiday season to perform their holiday catalog in the late 1990s.

Los Straitjackets are currently touring with Nick Lowe as part of Nick's Quality Rock & Roll Revue. In October, the band will be part of the Baja Bop, a surf rock-themed cruise to Mexico featuring two sets from Los Straitjackets, one of which will be a "Rock en Espanol" sent accompanied by their longtime collaborator and friend Big Sandy.
