Butch Walker and the Lets Go Out Tonites channel their inner David Bowie for on the new album "The Rise & Fall of Butch Walker and the Lets Go Out Tonites." Due July 11 via Powerballad/Epic Records, the glam-heavy set is Walker's third solo release and the follow-up to 2004's "Letters," which reached No. 10 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart.
"My last record was the guy in the corner of the bar, crying in his beer because his girlfriend dumped him the night before," Walker says. "This record is the guy who walks in the bar, lights the girl's cigarette, then gets drunk and dances on top of the bar 'til 6 A.M."
The freshly formed Lets Go Out Tonites comprise drummer Darren Dodd (Billionaire), guitarist Michael Chislett, guitarist Randy Michael and keyboardist Wes Flowers. The band is in the midst of planning a summer tour in support of "The Rise & Fall."
Walker, who produced Pink's "I'm Not Dead," recruited the pop songstress to contribute vocals to "Song Without a Chorus." He also helped produce Pink's cover of the Stevie Wonder-penned "Tell Me Something Good" as part of the soundtrack to the upcoming film "Happy Feet."
Walker, of the now-defunct Marvelous 3, just finished producing a new set for Pete Yorn and will be helming releases for Hot Hot Heat and All-American Rejects this summer.
