Singer-songwriter Mark Eitzel has had a bit of a rough few years. He had a heart attack last spring which delayed the production of new material, and his band American Music Club is said to have imploded, according to a Merge Records press release.
But those obstacles have been overcome and his new solo album Don't Be a Stranger will be released on October 2 via Merge Records.
Eitzel plans to tour the U.S. late this year to support the album. We'll let you know if he and his band will come to the Triangle. Check out photos and a review of American Music Club's fantastic duo set at XX Merge in Chapel in 2009 HERE.
