Barsuk Records signs David Bazan (ex-Pedro the Lion)
Here is a note that we just received from Barsuk Records:
Barsuk Records is honored to announce that we have added former Pedro the Lion front-man David Bazan to our roster. We will be re-releasing the Fewer Moving Parts EP (originally released in a very limited way by Bazan himself in June of last year) shortly. The 10-song EP presents five new Bazan songs, each recorded in both stripped-down acoustic and full instrumentation forms.
Bazan, who was recently named #85 in Paste Magazine’s Top 100 Living Songwriters, is currently on tour opening for Ben Gibbard and plans to hit the road again this fall for a headlining tour of the US.
After wrapping up the tour, Bazan will head into the studio where we will begin work on a new full-length record, tentatively scheduled for an early 2008 release.
NPR just webcast a full performance from Bazan’s current tour with Ben Gibbard and Jonathan Rice, and you can hear and download it here:
