"Get Loose" w/ Butchers of Sky Valley - Wednesday Release Show!

Butchers of Sky Valley, an Indie Rock/Blues duo from New York, is identified by sexy, raw guitars and brooding, crooner vocals.  Bridging a classic rock sound with a cutting edge appeal, their songs could be compared to the likes of The Black Keys, ZZ Top and Queens of the Stone Age.  


Their new single “Get Loose” b/w “It’s Not The Pale Moon That Excites Me” is a prelude to their forthcoming album anticipated to release in early 2013.  The single is currently out digitally (on Itunes, Amazon, Spotify and Google Play) while the physical 7” vinyl (w/download card) will release on November 13, 2012 via Heeled & Heavy Records.    


Butchers of Sky Valley will be previewing the album in its entirety at their Single Release party this week, November 14th at Fig. 19 where the 7” vinyl will be available (in addition to the stores listed below).  Check out the Facebook invite for more details.
