Victory Lounge / Oct 17th
Substation / Oct 23
Parliament / Nov 2 

As summer turned to fall, AJ DeLange, formerly of the Seattle psych rock institution, The Knast,
decided to shift course. It was a long time coming, but it came on fast when DeLange holed up
with singer/song writer/keys player Megan Gold (of the L.A. electronic punk outfit Dreamers &
We Are The World) in Gold’s barn in Olympia, WA.

The tunes came out as what they like to call ‘Cosmic Bar Food’, inspired by their mutual interest
in writing songs that sound like familiar classics (think Jefferson Airplane/Stones/Dead).
Fortunately, Tascar The Wise, the rippin’ bassist from The Knast, came along for the ride.

New heads include Carl Marck on lead guitar & Jeremy Oehlenschlager, holding down the beat.
On through the winter, the jams in the barn grew into a heavy collection of earthy soulful rock n’
rock that stretches to the stars & back for vibes that make you wanna meditate on the cosmos
and keep you rockin’ out on the ground.

The phoenix rose from the ashes, and Golden Ruins was born.
