The "Slow Burn" himself announces tour dates in support of CATACOMBS due out through Domino Records on July 7. Cass McCombs has developed somewhat of an infamous and perplexing reputation for his live performances over the years. Always surrounding himself with virtuosic bandmates frees McCombs to walk the line between professional entertainer and emotionally chaotic punk troubadour. His early performances in New York City still have him blacklisted in some people's minds; touring is a slightly rare occurrence.
McCombs and featured singer, legendary actress Karen Black, recently released a video for his new single "Dreams-Come-True-Girl". Check it out on YouTube in HD.
