The Donkeys have shared a new single, “Scissor Me Cigs,” from their upcoming album “Ride The Black Wave.” The new record is set for a June 6 release.
On the release date, The Donkeys will begin a tour in their hometown of San Diego. The trek will include stops at Boot & Saddle in Philadelphia on July 15 and The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on July 16.
According to a press release:
“California places a distinct sonic stamp upon the music born with in its boundaries. Owens had his Bakersfield, Parsons his Joshua Tree, and Malkmus his Stockton,
and in their tunes you can hear dust, desert highways, and skateboards gliding over suburbia. The Donkeys have San Diego, and from that environment have woven a fundamental ease in their music – a rock, a roll, a sway, a slide – you could even call it a breeze. On Ride the Black Wave, The Donkeys continue their easy rolling, classic vibrations, but add a mystery and tension that make this record their most lyrically and instrumentally compelling.”
