Spanish Gold Releases Debut Album SOUTH OF NOWHERE Today


Spanish Gold will embark on an extensive North American tour this spring and summer. See below for complete tour details. The shows are in support of the trio's debut album, South of Nowhere, which will be released today, May 27 on BMG/Del Mar Records. Already receiving critical acclaim, Rolling Stone recently premiered the first single, "Out On The Street." The single is now available on iTunes.

In addition to the full-length record, the band will release a special 7" for Record Store Day. The limited edition vinyl will feature the first single along with a cover of Ghetto Brothers' 1971 hit "There Is Something In My Heart." A sneak peak of the exclusive cover song can be heard now at KCRW.

Spanish Gold is drummer Patrick Hallahan (My Morning Jacket), guitarist Adrian Quesada (formerly of Grupo Fantasma) and guitarist and lead vocalist Dante Schwebel (City and Colour, formerly of Hacienda). Produced by the trio along with Collin Dupuis (JEFF the Brotherhood, Bombino), South of Nowhere was recorded by Dupuis at Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Studio in Nashville and at Lalaland in Louisville. Additional recording was done with Jim Eno (Spoon, Poliça) at Public Hi-Fi in Austin and Sam Patlove (The Octopus Project) at Big Orange in Austin.

Of making the new album, Schwebel comments, "We kept finding that we had a lot of the same reference points during the recording. It became evident that we were still children of the MTV era. We grew up with MTV when it was still a music channel. The way that the programming crossed genres from R&B to hip hop, rock, soul and pop music is how we approach records. It's an album of all those styles. Like watching a random hour of MTV programming circa 1986-1996. It's a nod to Michael Jackson, Dr. Dre, Madonna, the Beastie Boys or Tom Petty, all with a Texas border town setting. It all adds up to a fun listen that you can keep on repeat."
