JAMES LEG HITS THE ROAD!
BLACK DIAMOND HEAVIES’ keyboard wizard JAMES LEG has announced his first solo tour of the UK and Ireland next month.
The dates are in support of his second solo album Below The Belt which is out now through Alive Naturalsound Records.
The son of a Texas preacher, Leg formed Black Diamond Heavies with drummer Van Campbell in 2004 following his departure from THE IMMORTAL LEE COUNTY KILLERS. Releasing his first solo album Solitary Pleasure in 2011, he collaborated with labelmates LEFT LANE CRUISER on the joint album Painkillers the following year.
Leg recorded Below The Belt with members of SOLEDAD BROTHERS and CUT IN THE HILL GANG at Masonic Sounds in Dayton Kentucky, before sending it to be mixed by Detroit garage legend Jim Diamond at his Ghetto Recorders studio. You can get it here.
