Ron Gallo Releases New Single And Video For DO YOU LOVE YOUR COMPANY

Ron Gallo Releases New Single And Video For DO YOU LOVE YOUR COMPANY

Last week, Ron Gallo shared the single and video for "Always Elsewhere" off of his forthcoming, Stardust Birthday Party. Today, he releases part two - the music video for "Do You Love Your Company?" The two videos act as companion pieces. In "Always Elsewhere" Gallo walks through various scenes carrying a box labeled "SELF," and at the end he opens the box to see what's inside, which is where the "Company" video begins.

"'Do You Love Your Company' is a song about self-inquiry," says Gallo. "I think a lot of people struggle with being truly alone or fear silence because it forces them to look inward, but ultimately I think it's one of the most important things we can do to understand ourselves and others." Gallo is "tremendously sincere in what he's trying to get the audience to understand: If you're getting impatient in a moment that, on the surface, is meant to encourage inner peace, what does that say about you?" said NPR's World Cafe. "This record finds Gallo essentially erasing himself as he knows it, and turning to broader cosmic concerns."

Stardust Birthday Party is the follow up to Ron Gallo's debut album, Heavy Meta, a "garage rock album whose emphasis on lurid fun doesn't sacrifice depth," said The Guardian, giving it four stars. Mojo called it a "Shrieky-voiced, Jad fair-esque solo set of mid-70s Bowery oddball punk." Stardust Birthday Party is out on October 5th on New West and available for pre-order today. The album will be released digitally, on CD and vinyl.

Ron Gallo will be out on tour in support of Stardust Birthday Party throughout the rest of the year. A festival mainstay - having performed at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Hang Out, Firefly and sharing stages with White Reaper, Twin Peaks, Ty Segall, The Black Angels and more. He'll play dates throughout the US and Europe this Summer and will head out on a full North American tour this fall. Highlights include Gallo's Hometown of Philly at the First Unitarian Church on November 10th, Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on November 12th and the final date at The Basement East in Nashville, TN on November 17th. Tickets for the November tour are on-sale now.
