Rocker, romantic, superb songwriter and guitarist Pete Yorn has a new album out next Tuesday, 9/28 and a long overdue gig at Pearl Street in Northampton on Monday, 10/4 at 8PM

Pete Yorn will celebrate the release of his new self-titled album with eight exclusive shows including his first show ever in Northampton on Monday, October 4th at Pearl Street. He makes a return visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, Sept. 30th and a first time appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, October 7th. The critically acclaimed singer-songwriter-guitarist will then head to Texas to play the at the Austin City Limits Festival on October 9th

Pete Yorn’s eponymous new album was produced by Frank Black (The Pixies) and hits stores this Tuesday. September 28th.

We’re sure hoping that 93.9 The River and 100.9 WRNX will play the lead single “Precious Stone” on which Yorn goes full on rock with overdriven guitars, his signature vox,  and a chorus with a barbed hook that will lodge simultaneously in your heart and your sweet tooth.  The new album is a visceral, off-the-cuff collection recorded in five short days after Pete got an email from Frank Black suggesting that they record together. Intrigued, Pete flew to Salem, OR, where the two set up an impromptu studio. The resulting songs are raw, born of shattered nerves and shifting dreams, yet edged with hope.

Tickets for Pete Yorn at the Pearl Street Ballroom Monday, October 4th at 8PM are $20 and available at Northampton Box Office, 76 Main Street, 413-586-8686 and online at
