Last Daze’s debut singles OUT NOW!
New York native band Last Daze, whose debut album Symbols & Snares will be released in 2015 on BCR Los Angeles, have released two digital singles, “Heaven Won’t Let You In” and “Kentucky” via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and all other digital music distributors.
The dual single package offers the first taste of this young new band. Produced by Shooter Jennings, Symbols & Snares shows off a diverse and inventive young roots band on their way out of obscurity and into the minds and hearts of music-lovers everywhere.
“The best thing about Katy (Cole) and her voice and songs is that, one minute it reminds me of something you would get from Florence & the Machine and the next minute it might be a beautiful country ballad. Then something reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails will pop up on the record. It’s so unpredictable, which is the way I like my music. I was really glad they asked me to be a part of this project and I’m very proud of the record we’ve been making this year.”

Rolling Stone recently reviewed the album, giving it 3.5/4 stars:
“Whether country music tributes succeed or fail, they almost always err on the side of caution – keeping it trad even when saluting artists who mixed it up. Let’s cheer Shooter Jennings, then, for an EP dedicated to the late great George Jones that surprises with synthesized twinkles and bass lines nicked from Giorgio Moroder – the Italian disco wizard Jennings has said he discovered while listening to last year’s Daft Punk album. A Moroder-themed counterpart is supposed to be coming in January, but in the meantime, don’t sleep on the Jennings original “Living in a Minor Key”: Its arrangement is nothing fancy, but its songwriting holds up against the classic covers that follow.” – Nick Murray, Rolling Stone

“Don’t Wait Up (for George)” Track Listing Revealed in New Press Release!
(July 9, 2014 – Nashville, TN) — Shooter Jennings proudly announces his forthcoming EP from his label BCR Los Angeles/Thirty Tigers: Don’t Wait Up (for George), a tribute to the late great George Jones releasing August 5th. The single “Don’t Wait Up (I’m Playin’ Possum)” is available now.
Moved by his friendship with Jones, Shooter decided to put out a heartfelt, yet experimental tribute in his honor. “When people ask me about who I remember hanging around as a kid, I always say that I remember Tony Joe White and George Jones being the most frequent and consistent around the house. Very few people can look at a child and sees the full grown human inside them and make them feel important. George was always this way with me, making me feel like he took me seriously, no matter what age I was.” says Jennings.
The friendship of George Jones – one that started early in Jennings’ childhood – sparked the creation of this 5-track, heavy-hearted tribute record. “Very few people can look at a child and see the full grown human inside them and make them feel important. George was always this way with me, making me feel like he took me seriously, no matter what age I was.” Jennings says. This record serves as evidence of their serious, important bond as the title track, “Don’t Wait Up” was even initially written by Jennings for Jones’ next record, only to be unfortunately preceded by Jones’ passing.
“Honestly, I needed an excuse to write something that was very raw. And I couldn’t do it for myself.“ Jennings admits of the tribute.
“Don’t Wait Up (I’m Playin’ Possum)” as well as the second track “Living In A Minor Key” are original Shooter Jennings tunes. Don’t Wait Up (for George), the complete EP will be available worldwide August 5th on CD, 10” white vinyl, and digital formats. The EP will also be available on Black Country Rock’s experimental digital distribution hub The BCR Bazaar, and each copy of vinyl will include an invite code for the Bazaar. Later this year, Shooter will be releasing a companion project, Countach (for Giorgio), a tribute to production pioneer Giorgio Moroder.
