Billy Howerdel, fulfilling his promise to release a new song per week in the lead-up to the arrival of his solo album, What Normal Was (June 10, Alchemy Recordings/Rise Records/BMG), has debuted the song “Selfish Hearts” (https://youtu.be/6R6tpn5aqko).
“No matter how many different track listings I tried, ‘Selfish Hearts’ always felt like the right song to welcome listeners to What Normal Was,” said Howerdel of the track. “Sometimes a chord change can give me chills. ‘Selfish Hearts’ does that for me.”
The latest song arrives as the L.A. experimental duo VOWWS have been announced as the support act for Howerdel’s upcoming tour, which begins June 11 in Ventura, Calif. (dates below). The five-week trek finds Howerdel joining his APC bandmate Maynard James Keenan’s Puscifer for two shows: June 12 at the Greek Theatre (Los Angeles) and July 1 at Meadow Brook Amphitheatre (Rochester Hills, Mich). Tickets, and VIP packages, for all headlining dates are on-sale now, visit www.billyhowerdel.com for additional info.
