Tonight we head off to Paris in our brand new, 1984 Ford Granada. We’re starting a small tour of France including Jazz a Luz feat Jean-Yves Evrard. Also a couple gigs in Switzerland with our old buddy Nicolas Field. Then we have a week off before heading out east to the Ördögkatlan Fesztival in Hungary, followed by gigs in Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Austria. Who knows, maybe we’ll wander into some other countries too. As always, if you’re anywhere near any of those places come see us, or let us know and we’ll come play for you in your town!

If you’re around Amsterdam first week of May come check out the 11th Doek Festival in Amsterdam. Cactus Truck will be performing May 5 at Vondelbunker and John Dikeman will be performing with Dikeman, Kugel, Van der Weide with guests Roy Campbell and Peter Jacquemyn May 3 at the Bimhuis. Complete info about the festival can be found here: http://www.doekfestival.org
Cactus Truck’s new live album is out now! It features 71 minutes of material (almost three full shows) from our 2012 tour of the USA featuring Jeb Bishop and Roy Campbell. It’s a bit lo-fi, and perhaps stupidly long for our music, but we thought it worth documenting this tour and, for once, giving you all the bang for your buck you could hope for! It’s available digitally via bandcamp, just click the cactus to the left. Send us an email if you want to order a physical copy and we’ll figure it out! cactustruck (at) gmail (dot) com
Produced by our own Tractata Records in collaboration with eh?.

So, after completing, I believe, 37 gigs on our USA tour, as well as a couple performances for the Ex’s 33 1/3 anniversaries in Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam, we have made it to 2013 and have been decidedly lazy for a bit…
However coming up! We will be playing in Dublin as part of the 12 Points! festival!! Very excited to be there and visit Dublin for the first time!!! Check out the festival here: http://www.12points.ie/
Also, in process:
We are currently working on two new CDs which should come out in 2013. One will be a limited edition CD of various recordings from our USA tour. It will be produced in collaboration with eh? records, the bastard little brother of Public Eyesore. Will (probably) include featured guests Jeb Bishop and Roy Campbell.
The other was recorded on the last day of our USA tour, immediately after a brutal concert with Kevin Shea and Tim Dahl and before our very last show with Roy Campbell that night. We went to Seizures Palace to record from midnight till 5:00 am. We were pretty exhausted, but at a certain point got a second (or third) wind. The sound of the recording is excellent, big thanks to Jason for staying awake with us. Label hunting at the moment but hoping to release it in the second half of the year.
