Fabled New York rockers the Del-Lords return with their first new album in more than two decades

Formed in the early ’80s by ex-Dictators guitarist Scott Kempner, the Del Lords combined elements of ’60s garage rock with country, blues, and folk influences to become one of the initial progenitors of roots rock.

”We didn’t start with any agenda, other than to make a great record,” Scott Kempner says of the Del-Lords’ unexpected return to action following a two-decade layoff, which has yielded Elvis Club, the band’s first new album since 1990.

Elvis Club finds the New York-bred foursome pretty much picking up where they left off, embodying the same musical swagger and true-believer passion that originally made them one of America’s most compelling rock ’n’ roll bands, while adding a new sense of experience and perspective that lends new depth to Kempner’s personally-charged songwriting and the band’s infectiously gritty urban garage-roots-rock.

Remember; always check with the venue before travelling, or grab a ticket direct from the site:
