GRINGO STAR SIGN TO CARGO RECORDS IN EUROPE, KICK OFF US TOUR THIS WEEKEND
2009 was a busy year for Atlanta's Gringo Star – they toured Europe with...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, followed by a U.K. tour with fellow Atlantans Black Lips. Add in a couple of U.S. tours, plus a Lollapalooza appearance, they didn't stay idle for a minute. All this was in support of their excellent 2008 full-Length debut: All Y'all. With new guitarist Chris Kaufmann on board, the band made a few pit stops before heading off for another visit to the U.K. and Europe in November. On returning home in December, the band was approached by fashion giant Tommy Hilfiger to use the ever-so-catchy "All Y'all" in a fragrance commercial for the holiday season. Cargo Records have just snapped them up for a record deal in Europe and they hit the road this weekend for a U.S. tour (with Europe and the U.K. to follow), as well as screening their movie Hurry Up & Wait (Malone Pictures) at this year's SXSW Music Festival. Somewhere, amongst all this, they will put aside some time to record a new album.
