Attention fans of blistering NYC rock and roll.

Blockhouses has some really exciting news to share with all of you.  The band will be setting up camp at Kawari Sound in Philly in early February to record a brand new album.  Pete Donnelly of The Figgs (NRBQ, Shelby Lynne, Soul Asylum) will be pushing knobs and buttons as producer.

The tentative release date for the new Blockhouses album will be Spring of 2016. No title as of yet.

As New York City’s Blockhouses embark on a Northeast tour with the Figgs, they’ve also released a brand new single, the super-catchy “One More Time to Get Home” b/w “Little Sweetie.” Download it here.

Blockhouses guitarist Guy Lyons was the lead guitarist of The Figgs back in the day, and he’ll join them on stage at the following dates to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Figgs’ classic album, Lo Fi at Society High.

With a batch of new tunes — and a stable of old classics — Guy Lyons formed Blockhouses in 2013 with bassist Christopher Peifer. New drummer Jim Balga rounds out the lineup. The guys share a mutual love for bare-bones rock and roll — from the Ramones to the blistering pop-punk of today.
