“The Right Stuff” is the new single to be released by new Loose signing, The Americans. Hailing from Los Angeles, the quartet blend country and blues with a fiery blue collar rock’n’roll attitude, absorbing and reconfiguring the history of American music from Chuck Berry and Tom Waits to Bruce Springsteen. The Americans have appeared on US TV talk shows such as The Late Show with David Letterman, and served as a backing band for Lucinda Williams, Nick Cave and Courtney Love. They will release “The Right Stuff” as part of a four-track EP in April, with a one-off show at Sebright Arms in London on 3 May and a full-length album, I’ll Be Yours, due later in the year via Loose.
Following the release of their debut album Severed on April 7th and a sold-out album launch at the Water Rats in London, Curse Of Lono announce performances at a string of UK Festivals across the summer, starting on June the 3rd in Camden.
