Bud Bronson & The Good Timers "Between The Outfield And Outer Space" LP Is Coming Soon!

Here's some more big news concerning Denver's shred-tacular Bud Bronson & The Good Timers.  We here at SLN are releasing their brand new LP, "Between The Outfield And Outer Space" on October 12, 2018!  Fans of the band already know, they're an arena rock band with the ethos of garage punks.  This, their second album, revolves around a concept of balancing the future with the present.  BBGT is anthemic and this album sees them playing to their strengths in more concise and powerful methods.  If you loved them before, you'll love them even more now.  You can check out a track on our bandcamp sampler as audio proof that we speak the truth.  The boys will be hitting the road in support of the record in October and will have a homecoming/album release show in November.  "Between The Outfield And Outer Space" is up for pre-order in our BRAND NEW WEB STORE right HERE!  The vinyl is translucent green and it pairs stunningly with the album artwork.  This is a big one folks, don't miss the boat!
