Elvis Perkins, son of actor Anthony “Psycho” Perkins and a damn fine songwriter himself, is readying his second album. Elvis Perkins In Dearland, due March 10 on the XL label, is the follow-up to 2007’s solo Ash Wednesday and the debut by Perkins’ band In Dearland. The 10-track album was produced by Grammy winner Chris Shaw (Bob Dylan, Ween). Perkins, who rang in 2009 opening for Blonde Redhead at Terminal 5 in New York City, plans to tour with his band after In Dearland’s release. (Imagine that.) To read the interview we did with Perkins when Ash Wednesday was released, in which he reveals a tragedy-filled family history that rivals that of eels’ Mark Oliver Everett, click here.
