Fresh off the heels of New York Before The War (March 2015), Jesse Malin returns with his latest album, Outsiders, out October 9th on One Little Indian / Velvet Elk Records.
Born from late night recording sessions in the Pennsylvania woods with producer Don DiLego, far from any expectations, this new record presents Jesse Malin in his rawest form yet. Malin describes Outsiders as “a record built out of optimism and disgust – one for the leavers, the believers, the hustlers and the chicken hawks who could never catch us.”
Malin began playing live the age of twelve years old in the seminal hardcore band Heart Attack, after which Jesse and his childhood pals formed the rock and roll band D Generation and released three albums, touring the globe several times over before parting ways. Following several in-between bridge bands, Jesse Malin embarked on a solo career and has released six critically acclaimed records, starting with 2002’s The Fine Art of Self Destruction, produced by Ryan Adams. Followed by 2004’s The Heat, 2007’s Glitter in the Gutter and 2010’s Love It To Life, Jesse Malin has been nominated for the Shortlist Music Prize, received four star reviews in Rolling Stone, Uncut and more, and collaborated with artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Green Day, and Wayne Kramer along the way.
February will also see the re-issue of The Fine Art of Self Destruction, featuring a bonus disc and brand new liner notes by Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem.
