We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Beautiful Dudes’ new song “Queen Of The Castro” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s upcoming debut self-titled album, which is scheduled for release on October 28th through Mama Bird Recording Co. Beautiful Dudes was engineered, mixed and mastered by Tim Green.
Beautiful Dudes guitarist/vocalist Tom Bevitori comments: “I wrote this song about my friend Tammy. Tammy is someone I see regularly at the coffee shop. Tammy inspires me to be myself. Some day Tammy will hear this song and know who it’s for.”
The Dudes are Tom Bevitori, Robbie Landsburg, Art Echternacht, and Jonah Wells, born and raised champions of Nevada City, California. Known for it’s folky sweet side, underneath the surface there is an underground scene grinding away for the dream in historic hotels, reclaimed churches and converted warehouses. The dream of making it out of town. The dream of playing shows in the big city. The dream of quitting your day job and releasing a bonafide record. The dream of Beautiful Dudes.
The formula is simple: Guitar, bass, drums, vocals. That’s it. The Dudes want you to feel rad. The debut record is sexy rock n’ roll, have a good time, no built-in message bullshit. After years of writing songs that had no home in the world they were living in, the Dudes found themselves in a garage, at home, creating not simply music but the experience: Real dudes, living real dudes lives, rocking real dude music. Definitely loud. Definitely Californian.
