The long-time-in-the-making Roger Knox & the Pine Valley Cosmonauts album Stranger in My Land is being released on February 12th. This is a very dear record to us and one of, gasp, cultural significance, so please PLEASE give it a listen!
To whip you into a state of frothy excitement, we're entering all pre-orders into a drawing to win two Jon Langford prints.
Also, you can read an early chunk of praise from acclaimed Canadian First Nations' writer Richard Wagamese HERE.
"When it’s released in early February, this will become the most important country music release of 2013. Why?…This is country music wrought bruised and aching from the dustbowl that is Australia’s Outback. This is Roger Knox bringing an Aboriginal voice to what amounts to Jimmie Rodgers, Lefty Frizzell, Woody Guthrie and Paul Robeson gathered at the billabong singing protest tunes.
These are down-under songs of racial alienation, displacement, the march to civil rights and a collective voice in the wilderness proclaiming that they will not be moved. It is vintage Nashville sung like it should be; honestly, matter-of-fact and evocative as hell...Elegant, suffused with meaning and essential."
If you do, we'll send you the first single "I Came Around" right away digitally.
Have a listen to it streaming on RCRD LBL
Or you can purchase the single on iTunes starting today
OR you can go to the band's outlandish KICKSTARTER page for all kinds of pre-sale goodies.
OR (we've got more "ors" than a canoe factory....ba dump bump) you can secure your album when you see the band live on their summer tour.
Regardless, get yer Murder By Death...

And the winner is: Kyle Gunning of Kewanee IL!
He can now annoy his neighbors with style and pride! Thanks all who pre-ordered.
