Ryan Bingham – Fear & Saturday Night – Solo Euro Tour News

Fear & Saturday Night Ryan Bingham

I’ll admit to being a bit disappointed with Ryan Bingham’s last release Tomorrowland it’s not a bad album but benchmarked to his earlier releases, particularly Mescalito it’s not one I’ve returned to often. With news of his forthcoming release Fear & Saturday Night breaking last week and the release of a teaser track I’m optimistic the new one is a return to form. The album is set for release on the 20th of January and Ryan will touchdown in Dublin at the end of the month for a series of solo shows in Europe to promote the release.

“I’m really referring to life experiences in Broken Heart Tattoos. Sometimes they’re like scars or tattoos that you have to live with and deal with. You can’t run and hide from them or wash them off. There’s no way to remove them from your soul.”

According to the news and PR the majority of the albums dozen tracks were penned by Ryan along in an airstream trailer parked up in California mountains without electricity or a phone and the subject matter looks like erring on the dark-side, “the seclusion gave him creative clarity that resulted in songs inspired by an unstable childhood, and by the deaths of his mother to alcoholism and father to suicide”.

Fear and Saturday Night features a new band supporting Ryan with Jim Scott who’s worked with Wilco and Tom Petty on production duties – the album is released on Ryan’s own label Axster Bingham Records.
