Halloween, a favorite holiday among the Kiss Me Kiss Me crowd and the whole generation raised by 28 Days and sexy vampires on film; here at Team Love we’ve pulled together two songs that invoke both the lighter and the darker side of devil’s night. Enjoy them both and make sure to check out Dondero on tour and Refried’s new album, “Witness to the Storm.”

“Dondero is a brilliant storyteller and poet. His searching melodies and distinctive voice are heartbreakingly beautiful and uplifting. But after a decade of releasing albums, Dondero remains criminally unknown … [he] has long trudged through the detritus of humanity, turning his acute observations and experiences into sometimes twisted tales … Dondero exposes this backroads landscape and all its emotional land mines on Number Zero With a Bullet. With each listen, it stands out as his sharpest and most inspired work.”
Attention New Yorkers! If you missed Dave’s shows in the city last week, you will have one more chance to see him: TONIGHT. He’ll be playing at St Dymphna’s on 8th Street (between 1st + ave a) at 9pm. Hope to see you there!
And if you haven’t yet pre-ordered his new album, #Zero with a Bullet, order it today and it will ship out on Tuesday – two weeks before street date.
Team Love is excited to announce the first MP3 single from David Dondero’s upcoming album, #Zero with a Bullet (8/3).
On “Wherever You Go“, David takes us through a colorful travelogue of people, places, and things. Full of rich detail and clever wordplay, the song creates a vivid story of life on the move, hopping from city to city, taking in as much as you can, and moving on. Always moving on.
Wherever You Go (MP3) / Stream “Wherever You Go”
Pre-orders of #Zero With A Bullet will be available starting June 22nd, and will ship out two weeks prior to the street date. Vinyl copies of the album come with a CD in the sleeve.
Dave’s summer long tour kicks off this week. Check out his full itinerary on our shows page.
On August 3rd, 2010, Team Love will release # Zero With A Bullet, the 7th studio recording from David Dondero. But, as is his nature, David will not be waiting till August to hit the road in support of the new album. Oh no, he will be out in full force by the end of June, criss-crossing the U.S. and Canada. Full tour routing follows below. Plans are already in the works for additional touring later in the Fall.
David has been touring for well over 10 years now. It’s practically a part of his DNA at this point. The road provides both a venue where his stories are told, and the canvas on which they are written. His songwriting is shaped by the places – large and small, urban and rural – that he visits and the diversity of people he meets along the way. His stories are universal; yours and mine. It’s powerful stuff. Through honing his craft in small rooms and big theaters alike, on outdoor stages and at backyard BBQs, Dondero has developed a subtly of craft and dexterity of performance that is nothing short of inspiring.
