Veteran San Jose alt-rockers London Down will release “Dreamcrusher,” their first studio album in nearly three years, on Friday, Oct. 1. London Down will celebrate their new album with a record release party Friday, Oct. 22, at https://quarternote.com/Quarter Note Bar in Sunnyvale, California. (Doors open at 8 p.m., show starts at 9 p.m.) Veteran South Bay band Grey Matter will open.
The new four-song indie EP was produced by Kevin Army (Green Day, Operation Ivy) and Dave Ristrim (Luke Bryan’s band), and recorded at band members’ homes in California and North Carolina. Army, who produced the band’s 1989 album “Birthday” under their moniker The Raging Marys, also mixed “Dreamcrusher.”
Justin Perkins (The Replacements, Bash ‘n Pop) mastered the album at Mystery Room Mastering in Wisconsin.
London Down is also launching a national college/community radio campaign to promote “Dreamcrusher.”
