Neal Francis "These Are Days"

Neal Francis has released the first single, “These Are The Days”, from his forthcoming LP which is due out this summer via Karma Chief Records.

Francis is a member of the local funk band The Heard and a duo called Prizes, and is striking out on his as Neal Francis.

This first single, the first of two coming in early 2019, is an R&B influenced rock song in the vein of Dr. John or Leon Russell, and a clear sign of big things to come from Neal Francis in 2019.

You can catch Neal Francis at FitzGerald’s in Berwyn on January 31st and at Concord Music Hall on February 8th opening for Twiddle.

New Track: "Probably Die" - Lizdelise

Lizdelise's Holy Matrimony is slated for release on February 1, but you can take a listen to her latest single, "Probably Die," below. Synth and vocals lift one into the clouds in a confessional, intimate, love letter kind of way. Expressing the impact of potential loss, whilst simultaneously describing the ability to bounce back, the song maintains an enchanting, rough-around-the-edges-in-all-the-right-places dynamic, with its crunchy guitars and siren vocals. You can catch Lizdelise at Silk City on Monday, January 21, supporting Tiger Oil's album release show, along with Death's Dynamic Shroud.

   

A Deli Premiere: Fuel on Fire release cover EP "Them" on 1.18, plus new single on 2.1

See those dates? They reflect how busy Fuel on Fire have kept themselves coming into 2019. You may have seen their recent set at the Hard Rock on January 12th. But over the past year, the Doerfel Brothers have worked hard on getting a slew of releases ready for the winter. First up -- which the Deli is proud to premiere -- is Them, an EP chock full of covers of songs by the band's favorite artists. The tracks come from titans who influenced Fuel on Fire's sound, such as U2, Led Zeppelin, and Supertramp. To celebrate the release, the band will perform a show for the students and parents of Homer Pittard Campus School in Murfreesboro; the school's choir appeared in a music video for the band's cover of U2's "With Or Without You". The show will consist of the premiere of the video, a mini-concert by Fuel on Fire, and a performance of "With Or Without You" by the band and the school's choir.

Following the homage to their inspirations, the band's single "Figured You Out" -- a new original -- will drop on February 1st. Remember: These four brothers released their single "Heartbreak" along with its music video last August. They've shown no sign of slowing down. Perhaps working so hard keeps them warm in this chilly winter weather? In any case, take a listen to the premiere of Them below. - Will Sisskind
