Gringo Star Announce New Single and Fall Tour

Gringo Star - Long Time Gone

Atlanta psych rockers Gringo Star have announced a new 7-inch to be released next month via Grand Rapids upstart Dizzybird Records. The two-song effort will feature “Long Time Gone” on the A-side with “Word of Spin” making up the B-side.

On this latest venture, brothers Pete and Nick Furgiuele pursued a decidedly DIY route, recording all the instruments and vocals themselves in Pete’s home studio. The end result promises to be more raw and intimate than the more polished tracks that populated their last LP, Floating Out to See. The new single is dude out October 17, and will be released digitally through all major online retailers. It will also be available on vinyl at select record stores, the band’s shows and the Dizzybird website.

In support of the 7-inch, Gringo Star will hit the road for a fall tour that includes stops at the third annual Psych Fest in Kansas City, as well as a pair of CMJ showcases in NYC. A hometown show is scheduled for October 30 at Dashboard Gallery. Check out the full list of dates below.
