New 7" from The Gories

Posted by Third Man on 19 May 2015

TMR-308 / The Gories / “Be Nice” b/w “On the Run” Available Tuesday, May 19th

The baddest garage band from Detroit city, The Gories, is embarking on a 20-date campaign through the wilds of Europe and to help celebrate those live shows Third Man is proud to announce the release of their first 7” of new material in over twenty years! “Be Nice” is originally by The Nomads, featured prominently on “Back from the Grave” volume 4 compilation and is completely reclaimed by the Gories to fit in their inimitable style. “On the Run” is the first original badass Collins/Kroha composition in forever and while appearing on a streaming-only compilation a few years back is seeing its first physical release here.

In hopes to get the continent worked up into a frenzy, the Gories will be selling the tricolor version of this single exclusively at their European merch table. We’ll leave it to the band to figure how to handle with the screaming hordes, but the black vinyl version is available TODAY online and in our Nashville storefront (and quite probably a record store near you!)

Listen to a clip from "Be Nice" here below, grab yourself a copy of the 7" here, and if you haven't already picked up our previous Gories release, The Shaw Tapes Live in Detroit in 5/27/88, there's never been a better moment...
