Assuming we haven’t been swallowed up by the fiery hellscape of damnation by the first week of April, we’ll have a new Cory Branan album to look forward to!
It’s called Adios, and it’s billed as “Cory’s death album.” If you saw him out on the road with the likes of Chuck Ragan or Brian Fallon or Lucero last year, you got a taste of what’s to come by way of a song called “The Vow,” penned as an ode to his late father. It’s heart-breaking but razor-sharp, which is pretty much Branan’s wheelhouse.
Adios is due out April 7th on Branan’s longtime label home, Bloodshot Records. Pre-orders of the album, including limited-edition pink vinyl (which yours truly just did — apropos on a day like today) are available here. In the meantime, you can stream the album’s lead single, “Imogene,” right here, and check out Branan’s upcoming tour dates here. Stay tuned for more on Adios in the coming months.
Branan’s last album, “The No Hit Wonder,” was released back in 2014 on Bloodshot Records,
