The Deslondes – Neo Video

Watch The Deslondes’ new video of ‘(This Ain’t A) Sad Song’


Named after the street in the Holy Cross neighborhood of New Orleans where the band first came together, The Deslondes have continued to tour relentlessly since Sam Doores and Dan Cutler departed their roles in Hurray For The Riff Raff to focus entirely on the band.

For the new album Hurry Home (available June 23 via New West Records) The Deslondes met at New West Records’ studio and rehearsal space in Athens, Georgia and recorded everything for five days, working out new songs and arrangements.  With a batch of twenty new songs, they invited their longtime producer & engineer Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Benjamin Booker) to New Orleans to begin tracking that summer, creating a makeshift recording studio at The Tigermen Den in the Bywater neighborhood.  The album that emerged was Hurry Home.  You can read more HERE.

The Deslondes’ tour dates are below which include a showcase at the Americana Festival in Nashville and The Rhythm & Roots Reunion in Bristol Tennessee:

Here is one new song, ‘(This Ain’t A) Sad Song’.  Footage of the video was shot during the Opelousas Hayride at The Whirlybird in Opelousas, Louisiana:
