Known as the first band ever to be kicked out of Wal-Mart for playing an illegal show, Brett Newski & the No Tomorrow bring a 90's alternative sound across America this fall.
Newski has played over 1200 shows on every continent except Antarctica. Most recently he's been supporting Violent Femmes, PIXIES, Chuck Ragan, & New Pornographers in the US.
His latest LP, "Life Upside Down" was produced by Hutch Harris of Sub-Pop & Saddle Creek legends The Thermals and engineered by Beau Sorenson (Death Cab for Cutie, Superchunk, Bob Mould), "Life Upside Down" is a beautiful catharsis to a happier brain and sense of belonging. If you frequently find yourself stuck in your own head traffic, this record might help get you free.
Brett Newski has certainly kicked his own ass over the past 6 years, touring infinitely (mostly alone) and wandering down the rabbit hole of anxiety, depression, and wallowing self-doubt. All of these negatives have blossomed into positive creative energy on his third LP.
"Anxiety can actually be a good thing. If you use it right, that nervous energy can be channeled into motivation or creativity," explains Newski. "Even the most seemingly confident people have self doubt."
WEIRDEST VENUES IN THE WORLD TOUR
Looking forward, Newski is working on his next album, Land Air Sea Garage, scheduled for release in late 2016 and followed up by another world tour to finish off the year. Aiming for 2017, Brett plans to route the “Weirdest Venues in the World” tour, with gigs all over the world in unconventional spaces like attics, boats, barns, funeral homes, haunted forests, and atheist tool sheds. The Worst of Brett Newski is another ongoing project in the works, featuring 100 mini songs written about the road, on the road.
LIVING IN VIETNAM
While living in Saigon, Vietnam in 2010, Newski landed a job writing music jingles for national television campaigns, most notably a line of tampon ads placed in movie theaters and public establishments across Vietnam. The wild success of these campaigns coined him “The Vagina King of Vietnam” by his creative director. “The King” transitioned to a completely nomadic lifestyle after two years living in Saigon, playing 1000 shows across Europe, South Africa, Asia, Australia and the US. He released In Between Exits in 2011 under his own name before Tiny Victories with his band, The Corruption. Both were recorded across Asia. These releases were followed by American Folk Armageddon in 2014 on Milwaukee’s Good Land Records in the US and Make My Day Records in Europe.
