Hello, hello! Been a while.

Dave Rude Band returns to The Independent in SF on Sunday, Dec. 9 to support Duff McKagan’s new band, The Walking Papers, who are awesome. Bluesy rock with riffs and (gasp!) melody! Badass band and I’m stoked to support ‘em. It’s the first DRB show in quite a while and we’ll be playing a bunch of the songs from my new record, “The Key”. After some technical delays, it’s finally lookin’ like the album will be released within the next week. It’s gonna be an online only album that will be available at all digital retailers, but if you want the digital booklet with liner notes, you’ve gotta get it on iTunes(no other online retailers offer that option or I’d make it available on all of ‘em). Marc Kapetan at American Made Studios in Fresno, CA produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered the album and it sounds amazing. Check back here soon for a release date. And come on out to The Independent on 12/9 ‘cuz God knows we don’t do a lot of shows and this one’s gonna be killer!!

We are currently figuring out dates to go back down to American Made Studios in Sunny Fresno, CA (that’s the official name now–the city council changed it in a bid to increase tourism and downplay the negative imagery associated with the former city name “Fresno–The Worst Place On Earth”) and finish recording the last of the new songs for our next album. Actually, our first “album”, right? The first two releases were EPs, although “Carry Me Home” was damn close to LP length. Just worked a bunch today on a brand, brand new one that’s yet to even be jammed on at the rehearsal studio yet but I’ve gotta say it’s already one of my favorites. And–hush, hush, voices carry–but we are also working on some solid live dates that we hope to announce soon.
A special note: the DVDs and BluRays of “Running With Demons” are now available at I scored the movie and there is a DRB song in it as well. It’s a really cool movie and the soundtrack doesn’t suck, so go buy it today! Over and out…–DR

Internet rock’n'roll fanatics–please be advised: Dave Rude Band plans to release a new album in 2012, play shows in 2012 (being booked as I type–well, figuratively, I guess. It would actually be pretty hard to book a show at the exact moment I’m writing an update for the website. Unless I drank more coffee, maybe. Peets, anyone? ), and design & release new merch in 2012. We hope not to discover an unexpected accuracy of the Mayan calendar in 2012. Stay tuned…

I’m currently stuck (happily–I like airports) in Salt Lake City Int’l Airport at the Starbucks waiting for a flight to New Orleans for some gigs this weekend with my Sacramento friends. I love the music they play at Starbucks, about 90% of the time, which is a pretty good average. I’m going back and forth between my iPod with the Instant Karma: Amnesty International benefit record and the system in the store. Similar stuff on both. Snow Patrol’s version of “Isolation” is particularly good. Just switched to Paul McCartney right now. Gotta keep up with all the cool articles in Rolling Stone–I pretty much wanna listen to every artist in every story as I go, kind of a literary shuffle. Oh, damn–I bet that’ll be an iPad feature pretty soon (if it’s not already): reading an article on your iPad and automatically hearing music associated with its subject. That would be a hella cool feature that I’d definitely use. Wow, this is a fascinating blog, isn’t it?? See what hours and hours in an airport can do to you? Another random thought–I just saw U2 in Oakland on Tuesday. It was the best show I’ve ever seen. By anyone. Ever. Very nice to experience that this late in life, which sounds funny ‘cuz I’m not exactly that “late in life” just yet, but as far as concert experiences go, I feel you kind of max out sometime in the few years after high school. After that point you’ve seen so many shows that they kinda start to lose their effect, even though you still enjoy them. That’s why I think most people look back on shows they’ve seen in their youth as the best they’ve ever seen–their show enjoyment threshold has been reached and it’s very difficult to get that same rush from a great show anymore. Don’t get me wrong–I still love going to shows and I appreciate them a ton and I’m sure you do too. But it’s very rare that I get that feeling during a concert like I did when I was 19 and it was all still relatively new. Add in the fact that I’m lucky enough to play shows for a living and it’s doubly difficult to impress me–which U2 did on Tuesday in Oakland. In spades. If you can, go see ‘em. The production was amazing of course (you’ve no doubt read about it and seen the killer photos of the stage setup), but they coulda been playing in a fucking basement through one amp at the same time and it wouldn’t have made a difference to me. It was the magic of the songs and the band that was so transcendent. AND…Lenny Kravitz supported was unreal as well! His set was outta control. Soooo good. Started out with a 7 minute jam and did another 3 or 4 extended versions throughout his set which shows just how much fucking balls the guys got. To go out in front of a stadium full of people without a new album (yet anyway–it’s coming in the fall) and not feel like you have to play a greatest hits, all killer/no filler set to win over the audience–amazing. So classy and defiant. AND…it worked. Totally. The whole stadium went along for the ride with him and ate up every minute, extended saxophone solos and funk jams included. And by the way, that guy does have a shitload of hits too. I listen to him pretty regularly, but sometimes you forget how many smash hits he’s got. Sick. Anyways, that’s just where my head’s at checkin’ in from SLC…-DR

The show with Marco and I at Bender’s last Saturday night went well, junkie soundman severely on the nod aside. It was an event, to be sure. Thanks to everyone who came out for some different interpretations of the DRB canon (rocket? missile? love gun?). Playing the songs without drums is always an interesting challenge, but in my estimation, anyways, they work in that format pretty durned well. Even got a few requests after the show for an all acoustic record. While it would be fun, it might draw a little too many comparisons to certain members’ other musical endeavors… That’s right, Dynamite 8 had a lot of success with an all acoustic punk record a couple years back (punctuation winking smiley face). Anyways, the gig was lotsa fun and we’ll definitely do it again. For now, we’ve got some major show announcements with a major band for the midwest in the summer coming soon so stay tuned…And for chrissakes–SIGN OUR EMAIL LIST IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY AND GET SOME FREE SONGS!!! Heehee. –DR

Back safe and sound from our short tour of the Midwest last week. 5 shows in 4 days. Hard working trio. Lots of fun. Lots of driving. Lots of short sentences. Thanks to all who came out to the gigs!! An especially huge thanks goes to our streetteam leader Brinton and her/our friend Nicole who came out and did merch and videotaped every show. And another special thanks to Rich and Tracy for driving out to all the gigs from Michigan (!). You all kick ass.

I posted a video of us being stupid in the van (on about 0 hours of sleep after a flight) and a brand new song live from the legendary Paramount Bar in Salina, KS (it’s like Madison Square Garden or the Hollywood Bowl but a lot smaller and in Kansas). Click Here to Watch said video, if you’re so inclined.

Tonight, Saturday, 5/28, Marco and I are gonna do a little acoustic set sans drums at Benders in SF. It’s for Reality Check TV’s anniversary party. $5, 21+. 9pm. Come out for some quiet Rudeness.

And those of you on the tour already saw our brand new Key design girl tank tops. We’ll have them for sale just in time for summer on our merch page here shortly.

I am very tired. Also, I don’t believe in magnets.

That’s it. We’re about to get on a plane in a few hours and head out to KC for our mini tour this weekend. Got some killer shows lined up: Thur in Salina, KS @ Paramount Bar w/our pals Barrel Bright; Fri in St. Joe, MO @ Hammerjacks w/Sidewise and Barrel Bright; and 2 shows in 1 day on Sat in KC–6:30pm @ Harley’s And Horses (FREE, yup, FREE, and ALL AGES too) and then a few hours later we headline at the Final Approach Bar and Grill by the airport (get it? “FINAL APPROACH” and it’s by the AIRPORT….whew…pretty clever, they are). Hella fun to be had by all this weekend. If you’re in a drivable radius of these gigs, come hang with our gang (watch out, Eminem! Dave Rude learned to rhyme!!!) and check out some R’N'F’N'R. Now it’s off to bed for a short nap before the airport van shows up at some ungodly hour. Fuck, Bin Laden’s dead–do we STILL have to show up to the airport 9 hours early and let them check under our toe nails?! Let us get some sleep for chrissakes!! See you soon, Midwest. Rain or shine…–DR

Yup, you’ve probably heard via our FB (and our voraciously promoting Streetteam) that we’re coming back to the Midwest this week!! The snow in Feb. couldn’t keep us away, so we’re comin’ back to sunshine (uhh…hopefully!). First gig is back at the Paramount Bar in Salina, KS with Barrel Bright supporting. They’re a killer band out of Wichita that we were lucky enough to share the stage with on our last run in Feb. Then it’s down to St. Joe, MO at Hammerjacks with Sidewise–a badass KC band. We wrap up this tour with a double-header in Kansas City on Sat, 5/21 where you can see us twice in one day (like those old Buddy Holly tours in the ’50′s): at Harley’s and Horses ( for an ALL AGES, FREE show!! Bands all day long and DRB plays at 6:30, right before Isaac James Band. Then we head straight over to the Final Approach Bar & Grill for another ALL AGES rockfest and play another set later in the evening!! Don’t miss these dates!!! See you out there, with BBQ sauce on our fingers!!!–DR
