Nudity @ Baltimore/Olympia

If you didn't get a chance to see Nudity on their West Coast swing last month, you'll get another opportunity in April, as the band is putting together a tour that will take them across the country. It looks like they'll be intermittently joining Vincent Black Shadow, Birds of Avalon, and Dead Meadow on a variety of dates. When I saw them here in Arcata they played a thirty minute jam that I can only assume is a newer song. I have a feeling they thrive off of people not knowing what to expect.

The radio player over in the right column still has one of their versions of "The Nightfeeders" for your listening pleasure. Their 12" is shipping this week to a variety of distros. You can also get it through Kill Rock Stars and K records. Rumor has it that they'll soon be recording for a split LP with Vincent Black Shadow on Rocket Recordings, but nothing has been concretely set.

Anyways, the band sent in two live tracks for posting and downloading purposes. The first is an early take on "The Nightfeeders" recorded June 4, 2006 at the Talking Head in Baltimore, MD. It's roughly a twelve minute version of their now twenty-one minute opus, and it's interesting to hear the kind of progress the band has made over the past couple of years. The second track is a cover of Alice Cooper's "Long Way To Go." It's definitely the shortest thing I've heard them do, but it does indeed rock. The song was recorded at the Capitol Theater Backstage in Olympia, WA on September 16, 2006. I believe both songs are from self-released CDs they put out over the past couple years- don't hold me to that though. Check my Nudity posts from February for more info about the band.
