New Music: Bryan McPherson debuts “Burn It Down” from upcoming album “Wedgewood”

Sorta slept on this one at the end of last week, but there’s no time like the present, right?

Boston-turned-California folk troubadour Bryan McPherson has debuted a brand new song called “Burn It Down.” It appears on his forthcoming album, “Wedgewood,” and you can check it out here. As you may recall, McPherson talked at length about some of the album’s recurring themes (namely smoke and fire and burning) in our recent interview.

“Wedgewood” is due out June 10th via McPherson’s own OFD Records. Pre-orders are still available here. His last album, 2012′s “American Boy / American Girl,” was released by State Line Records.

General News
Ramshackle Glory launch GoFundMe page to replace stolen van

As you may be aware already, Arizona-based anarcho/folk-punkers Ramshackle Glory just recently had their tour van stolen right out from underneath them…almost literally. The band had parked the van in front of the place they live since last summer, and had no problems until now…right as their about to go on tour with Mischief Brew. Here’s what the band had to say:

Some more background on the van theft, err, liberation. So, it got stolen from in front of one of our houses where it had been parked since last summer. Of course it got stolen at the worst possible time, as opposed to say, six months ago.

We did begrudgingly try to file a police report for insurance reasons and in case it turns up anywhere, but the cop didn’t want to let us report it as stolen without agreeing to assist in the prosecution if someone gets caught. Since we refuse to do this, the cop put it down as “suspicious activity.” So, we don’t really expect to hear from them if the van does get found. But, you know, what would we do without them?

To help them cover the costs of purchasing a new van and embarking on tour, the band launched a GoFundMe page. You can help them out by clicking and donating here. If all goes according to plan, tour is slated to kick off June 4th in Phoenix. Click here for the tour rundown.

Ramshackle Glory last released Live The Dream in 2012 via Plan-It-X Records.
