Brian Rothenbeck & The Adventuring Party join Black Numbers to release their debut full-length, “Basilisk.”

For our first 2018 release, we’re stoked to announce we’ll be working with Brian Rothenbeck & The Adventuring Party to release their new LP, “Basilisk.” Prior to this, Rothenbeck had only released solo recordings that featured acoustic guitars paired with otherwise sparse instrumentation. “Basilisk” adds a full band into the mix and the result is a folky/punk Americana rock record that’s sure to be enjoyed by fans of The Weakerthans, Uncle Tupelo, and PJ Bond.

Youdontknowjersey.com is hosting the first single from “Basilisk” in the form of a self directed/shot/edited music video for “The Complete Guide to the Fucking Obvious.” Check it out here.

“Basilisk” will be out on January 19th, with pre-orders shipping out ahead of time. Seriously, they’re already here. You can grab your copy here.

To celebrate the release of “Basilisk,” the band will be playing The Harp & Bard in Clifton on January 20th.
