The Del-Lords Forced To Postpone Tour

Please see the statement below from Scott Kempner

“Well, just when we thought it was safe to go back in the water, or on a plane, or a stage, or pretty much anywhere, the powers of the Universe have decided, “Not so fast, pally”. As Eric reported just a few days ago, with the photo to prove it, he had an accident at home, and slipped and broke his fibula. You might remember that photo of him in that compression apparatus, and here today we present the follow-up to the compression apparatus – a full-on foot, ankle, leg, stabilizing boot. Judging by just the look of it, i would say it is mighty uncomfortable.

So, what is the skinny on all this, the headlines, the story so far? It is surgery for my guitar brother, our producer, our friend and colleague. Eric will meet with the surgeon on Tuesday of next week, and get the lowdown on what he will be facing. Besides the fun and games of surgery itself, then he will get an idea of what he will be facing recovery-wise. I am no doctor, but i am sure it will be a monster drag, not without discomfort and pain, and will take some time.
So, by now you can see this taxi coming like it’s coming up 6th Ave, after midnight, in the rain. Yes, it pains us all – Eric most of all – to announce that the upcoming shows, while still upcoming, are not going to happen in September. We have to cancel and reschedule everything for now, as we just do not have the necessary info at this time to say when we will be making up those dates, both Europe and NYC, and Joisey. We will absolutely make good on every one of those dates, as well as starting the recording of a new record as soon as we can.
We are sorry to have to make this announcement, but such is the fickle finger of Fate. After a year away for Frank and myself to have and recover from surgery, it feels more than a little unfair of the Universe to fuck with us this way, but we must do what we must do.
Of course, just in case, and before anyone suggests this – there is not a chance in Hell of hiring a sub for Eric. Eric is completely and absolutely irreplaceable for even one minute, let alone a tour. As you know, he is one of a kind – our kind. We are not the Del-Lords without him, and that’s that. Just in case, someone wanted to suggest it. Ya know, Mick would wait all night for Keith, and we will wait as long as it takes for Eric.”

Rolling Stone’s “Best 50 Things We Saw at SXSW” – Della Mae

Della Mae, a five-woman country band, kicked off the Americana Music Association’s showcase at Pandora’s Discovery Den at the Gatsby with a set heavy on the bluegrass. The highlight came with a cover of the Rolling Stones’ “No Expectations”: slow, rootsy, sung with feeling by Celia Woodsmith, a quiet prayer for a closing door.
