Gomez' Ian Ball Sets Solo CD Release Date and Tour Dates

(PR) Ian Ball, one of the three singer/songwriters in the successful British rock band Gomez, will release his first solo album, Who Goes There, via his own Dispensary Records label on October 30. The 11 tracks on Who Goes There were co-produced by Ball and Will Golden (Gary Jules) at da Schtud in Los Angeles.

Who Goes There began as an impromptu jam in the spring of 2007 and was completed over several sessions in Los Angeles. Ball edited the tracks himself on his laptop while on tour with Gomez in July. Two weeks of laboring constantly over his recordings on the road resulted in Ball returning home with a finished album -- a beguiling bit of Laurel Canyon Americana delivered with Ball's sly grin radiating from every syllable. From the laconic Wurlitzer groove of opening track "Sweet Sweet Sleep" to the lush harmonies of the drug ballad "The Elephant Pharmacy" to the epic compositional puzzle of the title track, Who Goes There is a woozy trek through Ian Ball's enigma.

Who Goes There tracklist: 1. Sweet Sweet Sleep 2. Automatic Message 3. Failure 4. Your Move 5. The Elephant Pharmacy 6. Free Tickets To The Moon 7. Who Goes There 8. When We Were Cool 9. Batteries 10. I Knew You Were Trouble 11. Enzymes

Ball will perform with a band of his own at the Monolith and Austin City Limits festivals this month, followed by a run of East Coast dates in November supporting the John Butler Trio. Confirmed tour dates are as follows:
