Brian Setzer new album 'Songs From Lonely Avenue' out Oct. 13 and tour!


After months of writing, arranging, charting, copying, tweaking, recording, mixing, reviewing, choosing, sequencing, mastering, (WHEW!)… We now get to hear the first amazing new tunes from Brian’s new album, Songs From Lonely Avenue. The first songs, Trouble Train and Lonely Avenue are now available on iTunes and other digital stores!!

Rockabilly guitar-slinger, big band impresario, and all-around cool cat Brian Setzer takes a walk on the dark side with his film noir-inspired new album "Songs From Lonely Avenue," out October 13th on Surfdog Records. Comprising ten vocal tracks and three instrumentals, "Songs from Lonely Avenue" marks the first time Setzer has written every track on an album.

And as he did on 2007's "Wolfgang's Big Night Out," Setzer recruited 87-year-old Frank Comstock, one of the most important and inventive arrangers of instrumental music of the last century, to score the horn arrangements. Comstock wrote music for many of the era's top artists, including Doris Day, Sonny Dunham, Benny Carter and Judy Garland (not to mention the "Rocky & Bullwinkle" theme!).

Furthermore, the "New King Of Jingle Bell Rock" (Billboard) Brian Setzer and his 18-piece big band will kick off their seventh Christmas Extravaganza 27-date tour on November 20th in Detroit. This fall, Surfdog Records will re-release Setzer's hugely successful collection of yuletide music: ‘Christmas Rocks' as well as the ‘Ultimate Christmas' CD and DVD combination- songs that have become part of the holiday tradition for millions over the last several years...

Trouble Loves me
Great news about the new album but no UK dates boo hoo

Harsh Truth

Ever Felt Had?
I really liked seeing Brian Setzer with a stripped down trio a couple times back in 2001 or 2002. I'm not so much into the big band stuff, though there are a few killer tracks for sure.
