David Kilgour and Richard Buckner Hitting The Road
David Kilgour & the Heavy Eights have just released a live video for the title track off their latest release, Left by Soft. Watch it here
David shares some details about the video and his one-of-a-kind guitar: "We were playing at the Empire in Dunedin, an old bar that only holds about 140 people and was made famous by the old Dunedin Sound-ers. The guitar I'm playing is a hybrid—the neck is off an oldish Epiphone acoustic, and the body was made by a guitar dude called Rob Scott. One weird thing about it is that the pickups sit on rails, so I can move them to whatever position/sound I want. It has the sound of mountains collapsing, especially at volume."
Recorded in about a week, at a lodge deep in the woods of New Zealand, Left by Soft, is David Kilgour's first album in four years with the Heavy Eights.
