CJ Ramone’s new full-length, American Beauty, comes out on March 17th! American Beauty is CJ’s third solo album and was recorded with his stalwart backing band: Steve Soto (Adolescents), Dan Root (Adolescents), and Pete Sosa (Street Dogs). The 12-song effort percolates with the spirit of ‘76, and a sound and style true to the Ramones. You can pre-order the album right now on Bandcamp and iTunes, and in doing so, you’ll receive an immediate download of all three singles, including album-closer “Pony,” which debuts today! This is one of our favorite tracks on the album; a heartfelt, Ramones-style cover of the Tom Waits gem, taken to another level by a contribution from the Mariachi El Bronx horn section. Don’t believe us? Listen to it here! Then, get ready to check out CJ Ramone live, because he has a ton of dates coming up. New Yorkers, don’t miss him on March 17th at his record release show at the Bowery Electric. Then, he’ll embark on a full North American tour with Big Eyes supporting. After that, he sets sail for Europe, where he’ll spend a month making the rounds. All the dates and info can be found here.
