Evan Dando

Celebrating the reissue of his first solo album, ‘Baby I’m Bored (2003)', Evan Dando will stop by New Zealand as part of his World Tour for two shows:

3rd June - Blue Smoke
4th June - Tuning Fork

Emerging after The Lemonheads disbanded, Evan Dando returned to music first with a solo tour and ‘Live At The Brattle Theatre’ then came his debut solo album ‘Baby I’m Bored’.

Mature and autobiographical, ‘Baby I’m Bored’ is a stellar record that stripped Dando of his grunge label. At the time of recording, he was without the band which saw him lean more towards an achingly melodic alt-country rock sound. Self-deprecating, these are songs of decline and coming back from that.

The upcoming deluxe reissue of ‘Baby I’m Bored’ on Fire Records via Southbound in NZ) for Record Store Day 2017, will be released as a deluxe two-platter vinyl set - the second disc being unheard unreleased tracks, singles, b-sides and rarities. You can listen to two tracks from the bonus disc - an alternate version of “Shots is Fire” featuring Liv Tyler and an alternate version of Rancho Santa Fe - and check out the full reissue tracklist, below.

"The songs on Baby I’m Bored show an artist venturing deeper into himself than ever before to produce some of his most magnetic, vulnerable work. Once the needle hits the record, it’s hard to imagine any committed listener turning away." - Paste Magazine

“Dando has a flair for bruised melancholy that stands comparison with Gram Parsons and Alex Chilton.” - Q Magazine

“A beautiful album of tender reflections on life, love and drug-induced folly set in soulful, country-tinged guitar pop.” - The Independent
