The forthcoming seventh studio album from Denver-based indie rock band Dressy Bessy will feature some guest players familiar to followers of Athens’ musical heyday of the early 1980s.
Pylon vocalist Vanessa Briscoe Hay sings backing vocals on the song “Get Along (Diamond Ring),” while R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck plays 12-string guitar on the tracks “Lady Liberty” and “Cup O’ Bang Bang.” Additionally, frequent R.E.M. touring guitarist Scott McCaughey (The Minus Five, The Young Fresh Fellows) also plays on a pair of cuts.
=You’ll have to wait a while to get your hands on a copy, however. Currently, KINGSIZED is scheduled for a Feb. 5th, 2016 release on Yep Roc Records.
