Tony Clark, seines Zeichens Frontmann der New Jersey Post-Rock/Emo Fraktion Prawn, veröffentlicht mit “Between Tours” einen ersten Song aus dem am 11.Oktober erscheinenden Debüt-Soloalbum “Dyed In The Wool”. Nachdem Prawn im Anschluss an ihre Tour zum letzten Werk “Run” (2017, Topshelf Records) eine Tourpause einlegten, konnte Tony Clark anscheinend nicht ganz ohne Musik sein und füllte seine Restfreizeit mit dem Schreiben und Aufnahmen neuer Songs auf. Natürlich ist der Prawn Einfluss in “Between Tours” deutlich zu hören. Tonys Statement zum Song, zum Album und seiner Soloarbeit:

“I’m very excited to share a song off my first full-length album, “Dyed In The Wool”. I wrote the album after my band Prawn decided to take a break from touring. It’s definitely a transition album. I, for the first time in almost 10 years, wasn’t touring constantly and decided to go back to school for my masters. During my (limited) free time, I’d mess around and wrote some songs. I asked the Prawn guys to help build them out and we came up with “Dyed In The Wool”. I think it stylistically shares a lot with Prawn songs but has its own sound. I was fortunate enough to team up with Rob Freeman and Greg Dunn to record it last spring. It was a unique experience creating an album as a hobby, rather than something we were going to tour on and release on a label. I’m not sure what the future holds for the project, but for now, I am excited to share it and hopefully play a few shows.”
