Out on June 3, Scene Point Blank is featuring I Wanna Go Back to Detroit City from the 79 years young Andre Williams this month, released courtesy of Bloodshot Records.

First moving to Detroit in the 1960s, Williams returns to the city on this album, his fifth with Bloodshot. The record was recorded near the former site of Fortune Records, now a field, representative of the changes to the city. Mixing low end funk, country blues, and gritty honestly, I Wanna Go Back to Detroit City is an emotional journey, both personal and universal.

AJJ and The Bible 2

Phoenix, AZ band AJJ, formerly Andrew Jackson Jihad, have announced the release date of The Bible 2, their first album under the new abbreviated moniker. The band kicks off a release show on August 18 and will formally release the record the following date on SideOneDummy Records.

The Bible 2 is the band's sixth album. As for the name change, singer Sean Bonnette said in a recent interview that, "among many reasons, the change cleared a space for new imagery and allowed their music to define them, not their band name."
