Ryan Adams Releases Double Album of His Archives


FINALLY. Ryan Adams is set to release a double album of his musical archives. The most bad-ass musician on earth will be releasing the now titled III/IV hopefully before the year’s end (no release date yet), on his own label Pax-AM. This double album was recorded with the Cardinals in 2007 when the band was recording Easy Tiger(Lost Highway).

The set will be released on vinyl, cd and download, and if you head to the Pax-Am site, you can read all about the project. Amazon is already letting you pre-order as the album drops December 14th. Pax-Am is starting their pre-order later this month, with one on i-tunes on November 23rd.

The site describes the record like:


“a rock record that felt more like a hybrid of all the records that the band had mutually consumed as kids… from influences as wide as KISS and The Cars.” It’s also a “concept rock opera about the 80s, ninjas, cigarettes, sex, and pizza,”

Ah Ryan, it is good to have you back in any form.

Ryan Adams Has a Youtube Channel Now? Our Life is Complete!

Though we still haven’t gotten over the fact that Ryan Adams has ‘retired’ from making music, at least we still get to see the altcountry rocker online. Not only is he chatting it up about his new website project(s), http://ryanada.ms , but he also gives us some stripped down live performances from his house, complete with stuffed animal intro (be sure to check out his video of ‘Crossed Out Name’. Classic.  Ryan also promises some unreleased Werewolph tracks on his new site, which if we recall was his fake ‘hard rock’ project.

Ryan Adams ‘Halloweenhead’ Live

There are two things I am especially excited about in Ryan Adamsville. The first being his returnto  writing The Cardinals blog (Thank God) and the second being his all acoustic version he recently posted on there of ‘Halloweenhead.’ This is a big deal. Ryan didn’t even play the song at the Halloween show at the Apollo. Why? Because he said he simply just doesn’t remember how to play it. Well, apparently he learned it again and its so good its insane.

Watch Ryan play ‘Halloweenhead’…from his apartment.
