We Sing of Only Blood or Love set for August 21 release
“As if Jeff Buckley covered Ziggy Stardust on the banks of the Mississippi Delta”–ESQUIRE
“…like a ghostly David Bowie” — THE NEW YORKER
Dax Riggs’ appearance at the 2007 Austin City Limits festival in September will kick off a string of dates opening for Queens of the Stone Age in support of his solo debut, We Sing of Only Blood or Love (Fat Possum Records).
Having disbanded the well-received deadboy & The Elephantmen, Riggs teamed up with esteemed musician/producer Matt Sweeney to record the 15-track We Sing… under his own name. And considering the first two song titles on We Sing of Only Blood or Love are “Demon Tied to a Chair best online casino in My Brain” and “Didn’t Know Yet What I’d Know When I Was Bleedin’,” it’s quite clear Dax hasn’t lost the morbidly rocking edge that earned deadboy & the Elephantmen critical and cult acclaim.
