The Love Me Nots Set Album Release Date, Plan Tour

The top act in Phoenix's garage rock scene, The Love Me Nots, has set a September 18 release date for their new record, Upsidedown Insideout, which they recorded at Mesa's Flying Blanket Recordings with the legendary Detroit-based producer Jim Diamond. (You can read my interview with Diamond, done while he was working on the record, here.)

The band, which now includes local uber-producer Bob Hoag, will debut material from the new record on tour and at several local shows, beginning with an August 28 gig at Mesa's Hollywood Alley and including two free shows at Tempe's Yucca Tap Room.
