Matthew Ryan is experiencing a kind of noisy renaissance. It began in 2014 with the release of Boxers, a fevered and smart rock ‘n’ roll record about the working class, produced by Kevin Salem. On May 12, 2017, Ryan releases his follow-up LP, Hustle Up Starlings.
The album, recorded in summer 2016, was produced by Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem and features Ryan Adams drummer Brad Pemberton. The first single from the album, “It’s a Delicate Waltz,” premieres today exclusively at VerbicideMagazine.com. You can stream it above.
Ryan is playing a hometown show with Jesse Malin and Juliana Hatfield on July 22, 2017 at The Bowery Ballroom.
