Tania & The Revolutionaries to release EP Walk Away Clean

Posted on August 8, 2013

NEW YORK CITY (August 7, 2013) -- After significant delays due to Mother Nature and technology’s flaws,the gypsy cowpunk band Tania & The Revolutionaries are finally set to release their sophomore EP, Walk Away Clean.

Walk Away Clean is an EP that was intended to be a full-length album, but due to natural disasters and computer drives dying in foreign countries, 6 songs are being release. The trio started out recording in Nashville with Steve Goodie at Pitch Perfect Studios. Steve played guitar and mandolin on "Cold Dead Cupid", "Not For Long", and "My Rosita". Then they went to the amazing Paul Kostabi north of New York City. He recorded and mixed "Walk Away Clean" and "Why Do I". Those files were lost during Superstorm Sandy. Before the hurricane, the Revs went back to Kostabi's place where Tony Mann (drums, percussion, backing vocals) recorded "Epitaph". Other songs were recorded that day but not finished. He and Laura Sativa (flute, percussion, backing vocals) went to Nicaragua where they planned to finish mixing. "Epitaph" got mixed. Then the hard drive was lost. But the band has persevered.

Originally pre-released in Nicaragua, Walk Away Clean is being released internationally Friday August 16, 2013 at 9pm with a party to celebrate at Otto’s Shrunken Head in the East Village of New York City. Tania & the Revolutionaries started out as simply acoustic music but Lani Ford (vocals, guitar, bass, mandolin) added the Telecaster and some songs feature full drums. But mostly the 3 piece band plays guitar, flute and percussion. The songs are fun even if they are about heartbreak. The band comes from different musical backgrounds but all three members spent many years in the NYC hard rock scene. If you are ready to break off a bad relationship, this is the EP for you.
