It's Bloodshot Spring Break! Party with Murder By Death, Bobby Bare Jr, Cory Branan, Lydia Loveless, Scott H Biram, and More in Scenic Chicago!

We're kicking off Phase 2 of our 20th Anniversary Celebration with a series of excellent Bloodshot shows (including live performances and movie screenings) to our homebase of ‪‎Chicago‬ over the span of about a week at the end of April/beginning of May!

See the schedule of events and get tickets to the shows here.

You'll have the chance to see Bobby Bare, Jr., Cory Branan, Lydia Loveless, Scott H. Biram, Rosie Flores and the Rivetors, Murder By Death, Andre Williams, and more in the span of 8 days in Chicago!

It may not be Cancun, but it'll surely have better music than the co-ed clubs and will be void of Montezuma's Revenge (we hope). Cheaper flights, too.

Board shorts are optional.

Listen here.

Then pre-order it on CD, LP, or digital here.

"The 10 rootsy Americana-style rock songs are at once poignant and shot through with mordant wit, which Bare said is a coping mechanism."

Oh yeah. It's an "I got dumped" record alright. We've all been there. Now get back at those who left you behind, with your rock 'n' roll fist in the air, wielding Bobby Bare Jr's Young Criminals Starvation League's signature howling guitars, thumping pianos, gritty bass lines, and vehemently irreverent lyrics. That'll show 'em.
