Disgraceland at Bonnarroo & Kill Devil Hill

We’ve got a double-dose of breaking news for you weary web travelers.

Angel & the Love Mongers at Bonnaroo

First and foremost, Disgraceland artist Angel and the Love Mongers has been selected to play the Bonnaroo Music Festival June 14-17 in Manchester, TN.

2007 is turning out to be a big year for Angel and Company as they’ve just finished mixing and mastering the new album, titled The Humanist Queen. The album was mixed and co-produced by legendary producer Mitch Easter (REM, Let’s Active, among many others) and was recently mastered by Nashville mastering guru Jim Demain.

The new album is a completely different experience than Angel’s 2005 debut CD – visit Angel’s website for more info on the new CD and check out Angel’s Myspace page for song samples.

For the uninitiated, check out Angel’s Bonnaroo page for more info and a pretty interesting bio.

ALSO AT BONNAROO – Smokin’ Dave and the Premo Dopes – Disgraceland mainstays and Knoxville rock legends. Just another great reason to attend Bonnaroo this year.

KILL DEVIL HILL

Longtime Friend of Disgraceland and former Nevers guitarist Rick Tiller has thrown together a new project and we’ve got it here at Disgraceland. The band is Kill Devil Hill and you can get a sneak peak at the project at their new website.

From the bio…

A decade after the Knoxville, TN band Leaf disbanded, founding members Matt Allen, Rick Tiller (The Nevers) and Jay Daniel (Jag Star) return with a brand new band – Kill Devil Hill.

Allen and Tiller reconnected at a time when both were free of any other band obligations and Kill Devil Hill was originally designed as a collaborative outlet for the many demos each had recorded seperately over the years. With the duo residing on opposite coasts, Kill Devil Hill decided to take an unconventional approach to recording an album together – the United States Postal Service.

Check it out.
