When we interviewed Hunx and His Punx man Seth Bogart a while back he told us he had several projects in the works and now it appears one of them will come to fruition early in the New Year. Yesterday Seth’s label Hardly Art announced the release of Hairdresser Blues, a solo album as Hunx, on Feb. 28, 2012.
According to a press release, this collection of songs promises to showcase a darker side of Seth’s songwriting compared with Hunx and His Punx. “A lot of this album deals with topics I don’t usually write about. I wasn’t concerned with entertaining people with these songs. I just wanted to get them out of me,” he said. “Most of these songs were written late at night in my bedroom when I was going through really dark periods. Sometimes I wouldn’t even remember writing the songs and would just find the demos days later.”
