‘All Aboard: A Tribute To Johnny Cash’ To Be Released October 21st

All aboard the Johnny Cash Express! Boasting a lineup of punk and alternative rock’s most indie minded artists, proudly wearing their hearts on their sleeves while effortlessly blending Punk Rock with Americana, this new homage to the spirit of Johnny Cash is good for the soul and for our communities. Anchorless Records will be donating all the profits of All Aboard: A Tribute To Johnny Cash to the Syrentha Savio Endowment (SSE), a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to underprivileged women who cannot afford the expense of fighting breast cancer.

All Aboard features debut solo performances from Russ Rankin (former front man of seminal punk band Good Riddance), Joe McMahon of Smoke or Fire, and Ben Nichols of Lucero. The tribute also boasts The Bouncing Souls and MxPx, both of whom are Warped Tour mainstays and fixtures in the Punk community.

The range of songs chosen include Johnny Cash’s first single (The Flatliner’s covering “Cry, Cry, Cry”) and travels through a long and unparalleled career to the last single released by the Man in Black, “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” performed by The Gaslight Anthem. It is our hope that through this record we are able to introduce a new generation of music fans to the songs and importance of Johnny Cash via their favorite artists. The liner notes include quotes from each artist, expressing their feelings on the impact Johnny Cash has had on them both musically and personally.

The vinyl version of All Aboard will feature an alternate version of “Delia’s Gone” by Ben Nichols of Lucero. Expect a full album stream to be featured on www.punknews.org starting October 21.

Metropolis recording artists ELECTRIC SIX are gearing up for the release of their fifth album FLASHY on October 21, 2008. Produced by guitarist Zach Shipps and recorded at Hamtramck Sound Machine in Michigan, Flashy is a diverse journey in their absurdist, surrealist, and oftimes double entendre-driven minds. “Our modus operandi for this record was to use more horns,” vocalist Dick Valentine says with a sideways glance, “And also to write songs on synthesizers and then turn them into guitar-based songs. But the main thing was to get all these songs out of our heads and onto paper. They were in our heads. Now they are on paper.”

In advance of the album’s release, Electric Six will also be playing a handful of shows this week, supported by New York-based Tragedy, a heavy metal tribute to The Bee Gees, including boat cruises in New York City and Boston. In the Fall to kick off album’s release, the band will also embark on an extensive national tour with Local H, kicking off in their homestate of Michigan.
