After various singles and EPs, dark tinged swamp rocking John J Presley – recently seen supporting Juanita Stein – at last announces his debut album ‘As the Night Draws In‘ which will be released on January 25th. It features the dark and wild toned guitar excursions he’s known for – reminiscent in places of bands like Comets on Fire, but with his own distinctive twists. ‘As the Night Draws In‘ has been a long time coming, speaking of the album Presley has said it “is a collection of workings from the last ten years. I wanted the body of work to show all sides of the music I make – not all riffs but some moments of clarity and tenderness too. It’s a reflection of frustrations and anxieties but also seeing a glimmer of light. A light to hold on to most certainly. It’s the deepest and broadest body of work I’ve done to date”.Naturally enough there will also be a short European tour just after the album is released – supporting Blood Red Shoes – the dates are below, but note that they’ve been selling fast!
Alongside the unveiling of the new album, John J Presley has also released the visuals for his powerful new single ‘Rise And Fall’.
