Geezer Release New Single “Long Dull Knife”


I know we’ve recently recounted the busy 2015 for NY heavy blues specialists Geezer, what with their tour with Bison Machine this month, appearance at Eye of the Stoned Goat in June, split forthcoming on Ripple Music with Borracho, and so on, but why not throw a new single in the mix as well? The trio just today let loose the free download track “Long Dull Knife,” which marks their first studio recording released with bassist Richie Touseull alongside guitarist/vocalist Pat Harrington and drummer Chris Turco.

You might recall a live version of “Long Dull Knife” was included on Geezer‘s 2014 Live! Full Tilt Boogie tape (review here), but the studio recording boasts a couple surprises, namely the less-whiskey-soaked feel in Harrington‘s vocals and a Hammond contribution (never hurts) from Jeff Mercel that only adds to the bluesy roll of the riff that leads the way through. I haven’t seen word of Geezer starting work on their next full-length yet, but this kind of branching out bodes well for when they get there.

Geezer‘s aforementioned run of shows with Bison Machine starts May 26. Those dates follow the announcement that came with the track, which you’ll find below:
