Dan Andriano of Alkaline Trio comes to tour the UK in November with a full band behind him for the first time. The full band shows will deliver his latest album Party Adjacent in the way it was meant to be heard - the same masterclass in songwriting prowess laced with that surge of live energy drawn from years of experience. You can buy Party Adjacent now on CD, download and vinyl from Xtra Mile Recordings' shop, and from the usual outlets.
As well as treating our shores to the full-band live experience, he is also bringing Sam Russo along as main support act. The Plymouth-based singer-songwriter releases his second album of largely acoustic, entirely indelible songs, Greyhound Dreams, in October and having supported the likes of Tim Barry and Crazy Arm on tour, he’ll fit right in with Andriano & co.

“The Emergency Room started as something for me to do with songs I had been writing that didn’t seem to have a place on Alkaline Trio records,” explains Andriano. Started when he found himself living in Florida, he released his debut full-length Hurricane Season in 2011 and toured troubadour-style around the release with just an acoustic guitar on the US and European legs of the Revival Tour.
Released by XMR for the world (ex NA) and Asian Man Records in the US - Party Adjacent marks the beginning of a new chapter to the Emergency Room story. Produced by Jeff Rosenstock, formerly of Bomb the Music Industry, Andriano is joined by a backing band of Jeff, Kevin Higuchi of The Jeff Rosenstock Band and Mike Huguenor of Hard Girls to fantastic effect. With influences ranging from Thin Lizzy to Elvis Costello via Billy Bragg, Party Adjacent is truly one of those rare records that is built by an artist's singular vision and augmented by exactly the right collaborative team.
