A few months back our world was heavy with Shawn Smith news with the reunion of Satchel, a new Brad album on the horizon, and even getting the gang back together with Steve Fisk for some Pigeonhead. The train is still rolling hard as Satchel is honing the live show up in Seattle with some occasional Brad gigs sprinkled in, including a last minute addition to last month's Sasquatch festival.
Now we have news of the official release date for the new Brad album Best Friends?. The twelve song set will be released August 10th through Monkeywrench Records and will be available through Pearl Jam's Ten Club "in due course". For those that want to hear a sample from the record, the tune "Runnin For Cover" is still available as a free download through the Brad Corporation site. You can also check out the kickass promo video for the album below.
No word yet on when Satchel's Hearthache & Honey will be available online, so your only current option for picking up the album is through a live show which in a way is sort of a double win. Good times.
