New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore Dates Supporting Le Butcherettes Confirmed
November 8 will mark the appropriately Autumnal and highly anticipated full length debut album from The Black Belles, available on that date directly from Third Man Records, iTunes, and all finer record stores. Pre-sale info will be announced shortly as well.
The album’s release will be preceded by a trio of dates supporting Le Butcherettes November 1 at Santo’s Party House in New York, November 2 at Milkboy in Philadelphia and November 3 at Ottobar in Baltimore, with further dates to be announced soon.
The piece de resistance of the Black Belles upcoming regimen, however, is a November 11 record release show at Third Man. Aside from a guaranteed night of top notch live music, the record release event will be the ONLY opportunity to purchase one of the 300 limited edition Black Belles vinyl LPs featuring the poorly-testing, gross, offensive and ultimately recalled cover art.
In addition, the 300-piece original art pressing of The Black Belles debut will be released on TMR’s exclusive new “Absinthe vinyl,” which glows in the dark and conjures the glow of the Belles’ favored pre-show cocktail and the visions it’s been known to induce.
The not-suitable-for-mass-consumption original cover actually features a shot from the also-withheld-in-the-name-of-decency video David Swanson directed for the Belles’ “Honky Tonk Horror” single. Though while the “Honky Tonk Horror” video has been archived for the foreseeable future, Third Man has unearthed the previously “lost” video for the B-side to the first Belles 45: “Lies,” directed by Jack White and edited by Kevin Carrico, can now be seen for the first time at http://youtu.be/XfdhawjgN-M
