Hi I just wanted to send you an update from Chicago based band, Dastardly. This past year has been filled with touring, recording, music videos and more. All of this leading up to the new release of their newest recording
“Bury Me in the Country”
The album’s will be released January 19th in Chicago & January 31st Worldwide on CD, Itunes, Amazon, Bandcamp & Google Music
The album was recorded this record mostly live in a wood panel laundry room with a large bottle of bourbon. It got pretty rowdy.
The engineer doesn’t remember
the last half of the session.
Would you like me to send you an advance copy of the album available to stream, download?
Or if you’d like we can send you a hard copy too.
Also here’s a link to a nice HD video of a recent performance Dastardly did for Audiotree http://vimeo.com/33840914
You can also see their music video for the song “Villan” from their first album here
Here’s their facebook page too
I have pasted their bio and recent press below as well. So if you are interested in a press only advance copy just let me know.
Hope all is well with you!

REVIEWS FOR “MAY YOU NEVER.”
Loud Loop Press
Metromix Chicago/Red Eye
In the short year that they have been together, Chicago indie/Americana outfit Dastardly has garnered a reputation for being able to pack in some of the finest clubs in their hometown including the Metro, Schubas and Lincoln Hall. Their first album, “May You Never…” was released on December 9th to much critical acclaim. Mixed by Paul Klimson (The Roots, John Legend, The Jimmy Fallon), the disc was named CD of the Month by the Deli Chicago and Music You Must Hear Now by the Red Eye. In the upcoming year, Dastardly will be touring the country extensively (in one form or another) to support their new release.
