Mike Watt and Kira Roessler’s Dos to Release New Album

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

Dos, the two-member group made up of bassists Kira Roessler (Black Flag, Twisted Roots) and Mike Watt (Minutemen, The Stooges), will be releasing their fourth album on June 7th, 2011.

The album, entitled Dos y Dos, features both members on bass and Kira’s vocals, and little else.  The album was recorded in Watt’s makeshift studio in his apartment in San Pedro, and produced by Yuka Honda of Cibo Matto, also Watt’s bandmate in Floored by Four. The album will be the second release on Watt’s label, clenchedwrench.

“We’ve been together since the fall of 1985,” says Watt. “This is my longest running band. I really dig playing with Dos… What we try to do is develop converstations between our two basses and create a landscape of low-end dynamic. In Dos, there is no hiding. This is both the challenge and the reward.”
