Today the debut self-titled album from Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants arrives in stores via Le Coq Napoleon/RCA. The album of soulful, alt-country inspired rock songs is a definitive departure from anything Foo Fighter lead guitarist Shiflett has done before, highlighting his versatility as both a guitarist and a songwriter.
Twangville is currently hosting an exclusive premiere of album track “Bandaged,” which can be streamed here. Early last month, FilterMagazine.com premiered the first MP3 off the album, “Get Along.” That song can also now be downloaded here. Full album streams of Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants are also now available via AOL Music’s Spinner blog and CBS Radio’s The Street Date.
Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants are currently in the early stages of their first headlining tour, playing an album release show tonight at Velvet Jones in Shiflett’s hometown of Santa Barbara, CA.
