Camper Van Beethoven

New Dates with Cracker
& a Return to Europe!

LOOKING AHEAD - It's pretty clear that after three decades of creativity, Camper Van Beethoven is far more than a David Lowery side project. While Cracker has toed the line with ironic alt-country and rock-infused Americana - CVB has long sat at the Alternative Rock table... nibbling at greatness all the while. I applaud Lowery and the band for maintaining that separate aesthetic. There have been a number of shared Cracker/CVB tours the last few years, but the release of new material (Lowery's masterful Palace Guards in 2011 was his first solo effort), and CVB's latest: La Costa Perdida, have refocused Lowery and clearly added fuel to Camper's fire. The upcoming dates for Camper in Europe are incredibly their first there in 8 years. CVB just released a new video for the single "Someday Our Love Will Sell Us Out" - a dark tale of a metaphorically crumbling world. The video is far far less dramatic...
