MdCL’s CHURCH : Live Launch LA

unnamed
the countdown is on! just over two weeks until my new album CHURCH will be released worldwide on CD+digital, with double vinyl coming a month later. it’s been a super fun process getting the album together, and now i can’t wait to unveil it to ears far and wide 🙂 

to celebrate the new album, i’m doing TWO nights of live launch shows at our favorite LA spot, THE BLUE WHALEMAY 24 + 25, memorial day weekend. there’s a great cast of guests joining me, and as well as pre-sale discount tickets, you can pre-order the CD now and pick it up and get it signed at the show – before it even gets released.

invite your friends and be ready for two great nights of music – see you there!

Come October 12th, we get to watch the leaves fall down while artists from around the world come together to play at this year’s Culture Collide at the Echo [1822 W Sunset Blvd  Los Angeles, CA 90026]!

To get you ready for what’s to come, we’ve gathered a bunch of details on the bands that will soon grace our stages, prepping you for when the world converges in LA. Remember: no passport needed!
