Long-time Philadelphia bandleader, songwriter and collaborator Joey Sweeney will release his latest project on October 29th through Pennsylvania indie label La Société Expéditionnaire. Sweeney and his Long Hair Arkestra have been making moves all summer, starting with an introductory performance at The Key Studio Sessions Live event at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in April and currently curating a month-long residency at the Khyber Pass. The record release will be in collaboration Bands in the Backyard, who captured the local rock band’s performance of “When You Say My Name” in front of the airplane sculpture in PAFA’s courtyard and will release the Arkestra’s new video shortly. Take a look at the live video below (followed by their track “Kate Moss Hologram”) and check back for ticket information for the record release show, happening at Johnny Brenda’s on October 26th.
