Mustachioed madman and frontman of Eagles of Death Metal, Jesse Hughes will release his debut solo album as Boots Electric on Dangerbird Records today. September 20th. He has also assembled a crew of some of LAâ€™s eclectic rockers to take the Boots Electric material on the road. Titled Honkey Kong, the album was produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Depeche Mode, The Kooks) and co-written with legendary keyboardist Money Mark, best known for his many collaborations with the Beastie Boys.
As these collaborators suggest, Hughes is showing a whole new side of himself that was only hinted at with his work in Eagles of Death Metal. His new material, as Boots Electric, explores a more keyboard-heavy, danceable sound and oozes more of Hughesâ€™ beloved swagger than ever before.
