Today (6/27), DEAD ROCK WEST--the California alt-country rock vocal duo of Cindy Wasserman and Frank Lee Drennen--partnered with Los Angeles Times' Pop & Hiss to premiere "Boundless Fearless Love." It's the lead single off their new album MORE LOVE due out Friday, August 11via Omnivore Recordings. Click here to listen to "Boundless Fearless Love" which Randy Lewis of the Los Angeles Times notes is "set to a propellant track that's part R.E.M., part Tom Petty and part Neil Young..."

 

For their fourth album, MORE LOVE joins DEAD ROCK WEST with producer John Doe--of the legendary band X, with whom they've toured numerous times--to create an album that places their achingly beautiful signature vocals and harmonies in finely etched rock, alt-country and pop settings.  The sound is both contemporary and timeless. "John brought focus, passion, and experience to the sessions, bringing out a better version of us," says the duo that'll perform the day the disc comes out at McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Monica, CA.

 

"They have combined all of the influences (alt-country, gospel, Everly Bros) from their previous records into this one," says John Doe. "Great songs. Great playing. Wonderful performances. More Love is heart & soul from two deeply original singers & songwriters." Doe adds: "Somehow Cindy & Frank connect the dots between '70 country & '60 soul music. They are a modern day Gram & Emmylou singing songs that Otis & Carla would sing."

 

MORE LOVE--recorded, mixed and mastered in Los Angeles by multiple Grammy Award-winner Dave Way--is comprised of 12 songs about the joy and heartbreak of love. There are 11 DEAD ROCK WEST originals--among them the joyously infectious first single "Boundless Fearless Love," "Radio Silence"and "Waiting Patiently"--plus a cover of Sam Cooke's "Bring It On Home to Me" that thematically closes this deeply felt album. The masterful band on MORE LOVE includes D.J. Bonebrake of X, lead guitarist Elliot Easton of The Cars and ace pedal steel guitarist Greg Leisz.

 

"This was a group effort; band, singers, engineer, producer all equal, all working toward a common, honest goal," says John Doe. "All of us in a room making real music, from the heart, from intuition, from aching & wanting, from beauty & the desert." 

 

MORE LOVE follows the Los Angeles-based duo's critically hailed tribute album to the Everly Brothers, It's Everlys Time! (2015), a work that galvanized the group vocally in the studio and onstage at their headline performances as well as on tour with X and Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin. DEAD ROCK WEST will support MORE LOVE with tour dates (TBA), videos and live performances including the above-mentioned album release show and this August's West of the West/Roots On The Rails journey where they will jointheir friend Dave Alvin and other musicians on an unforgettable musical train ride across the musical heart of America: http://www.rootsontherails.com/upcoming-trips-2017-west-of-the-west
