| THE WALKABOUTS - DELUXE REISSUES

posted at 04/30/2014

Coming 06/27/2014 at Glitterhouse: The Walkabouts - Nighttown (deluxe edition) & Devil’s Road (deluxe edition)!

For 30 years The Walkabouts have written and sung about one of their main topics: America – the origin and home of Rock’n’Roll. The Walkabouts scrutinize America as a mythic place spotlighted by desires and hopes, but also contradictions and inconsistences.

Singer-Songwriter Chris Eckman and Carla Torgerson founded The Walkabouts in 1984 in Seattle. 1989 saw the release of their Sub Pop debut, finding themselves the only non-Grunge band next to the likes of Nirvana, Soundgarden, and Mudhoney. Ironically enough the sound of The Walkabouts, the mixing of Folk, Americana and Country with the knowledge and energy of Punk, survived the Grunge hype of the 90's and became one of the most important and enduring musical genres of the following decades. In 1992 The Walkabouts and Sub Pop Records split but the band joined forces with Sub Pop Europe represented by Glitterhouse Records in Beverungen, Germany. After releasing two albums -- „Devil’s Road“ (1996) and „Nighttown“ (1997) -- with Virgin Records, The Walkabouts returned again to their home Glitterhouse and have remained their from1999 until today.

More info coming soon!
