Release: Old Smokey album “Sundowners”

We are ecstatic after receiving the news that Old Smokey’s second full-length album will finally be released today on all streaming platforms.  The record titled “Sundowners” was originally recorded throughout 2015 and into 2016 before being shelved indefinitely due to the band going on hiatus later that year.

Then in April of 2019, the album saw limited release through bandcamp before finally being picked up by Gypsy Farm’s online distributor and made available world wide.

OLD SMOKEY / “DEAD MAN’S POSE”

This message arrived yesterday via the OSO :

Old Smokey at GF House Fest 2012 by WJAY

AMERICA!! LOOK AWAY from yon Stupor Bowl. This promotion commotion, courtesy of Benjamin McCormick, Esq., appeared at our offices earlier today. The video is for “Dead Man’s Pose,” the lead single off Old Smokey’s debut album, “Wester Easter,” which is due out any day now (April 29, 2014 to speak specifically) as a joint release on Cloud Recordings and Gypsy Farm Records. Mr. McCormick, who has no time for such trivialities as The Facebooks, also lent his talents to the album’s artwork, for which (and for this) we at the offices of Old Smokey are eternally grateful.
