Coming Soon… ROCKY ERICKSON Tribute Album

15 April 2021

The late great ROKY ERICKSON (15 July 1947 – 31 May 2019) was one of the pioneers
of psychedelic rock back in the sixties as founder/frontman/guitarist of The 13th Floor Elevators and kept on rolling afterward as a solo performer.

The legend will be honored with a tribute album, titled May The Circle Remain Unbroken: A Tribute To Roky Erickson, featuring artists such as Jeff Tweedy, Margo
Price, Ty Segall, Lucinda Williams, Mark Lanegan, Neko Case, Chelsea Wolfe and The Black Angels
.

The LP (clear/purple vinyl with a bonus RSD-only flexi disc featuring an unreleased early-’70s Roky Erickson track, ‘Love Hieroglyphics’) comes out on Record Store Day,
on July 17. A CD version will be available later in 2021. More info here.
