The Drones to tour with Band of Horses, release Custom Made vinyl

The Drones

Australian band The Drones have been bringing their brand of multi-faceted blues-based psych-rock to us for years with acclaimed albums like 'Here Come the Lies', 'Wait Long by the River', and their 2006 release 'Gala Mill'. (We think it's a good thing that describing their sound requires that many hyphens.)

In celebration of their upcoming US tour with Band of Horses (dates below), The Drones will be the first band to kick off ATP Recordings' new series of double 7" vinyl called 'Custom Made'. Custom Made invites artists to submit four songs which will be released on limited edition 7" and also made available as a digital download.

For each Custom Made 7" the bands choose: something old (an old song), something new (a song from their latest album), something borrowed (a cover) and something blue (a blues song, the word blue in the title, anything...)

The vinyl is limited to just 1,000 pieces, and 100 of them will be special edition silk screened printed covers, numbered and signed by the sleeve designer.

The Drones: Custom Made will be out on November 5th, 2007 and will include the following tracks:

Side A. Something Old - "Cockeyed Lowlife of the Highlands" (New recording of this old song)
Side B. Something New - "I Don't Ever Want to Change" (taken from the album 'Gala Mill')
Side C. Something Borrowed - "I Drink" (originally by Charles Aznavour)
Side D. Something Blue - "Shark Fin Blues" (taken from the album 'Wait Long By the River'.)
