Album Art for Ignite the Rest


I really wish more groups would do this. Kelley Deal (The Breeders, The Kelley Deal 6000) and Mike Montgomery (Ammpline), also know as R. Ring, have taken it upon themselves to launch a podcast detailing their road to their new full-length LP Ignite the Rest which is due out on Sofaburn Records April 28th. At the time of writing this three episodes have been released with a new episode being released weekly, one for each of the 12 tracks on the album.

The first episode, entitled “Mike and I talk about getting off the couch and saying no to acoustic solo shows”, details how the unlikely pair came to be and wouldn’t you know it, it mostly started out because of a Guided by Voices cover. Other artists involved in the six-year endeavor include skateboarder Kristian Svitak, drummers Leo DeLuca of Southeast Engine and Laura King of Fleshwounds, and cellist Lori Goldston of Earth and Nirvana fame.

Aside from R. Ring, Kelley’s other group The Breeders is putting the finishing touches on a record that could be out by the end of the year. Mike Montgomery’s group Ampline seems to have a new album in the can that’s just waiting for release. You can find a like to the R. Ring podcast here.
