Dave Dalton is a San Francisco native but he’s spent the majority of his life based in Northern California. A seminal punk rocker who picked up a guitar in 1967, he never looked back.
Last autumn, Golden Robot Entertainment began talks with him and his management team to sign Dalton as an artist and secure his back catalogue with his present band Screaming Bloody Marys, as well as his past projects including Cell Block 5 and his solo acoustic stint The Unfortunate Bastard, to Die Laughing Records.
The partnership has also allowed Dalton to head projects and secure worldwide distribution for his signed artists such as Fang, Pearl Harbour, Infamous Stiffs and a newly acquired Silverhead project.
First up for release is the Dave Dalton Triple Pack, a digital sampling. The three songs featured are‘Here Before’ from Screaming Bloody Marys, ‘The Hammer’ from Cell Block 5, and also the Johnny Thunders tribute ‘Dead and Gone’ that Dalton wrote and performed as The Unfortunate Bastard.
There will be an anniversary vinyl edition of his compilation album Hobo Circus – The Unfortunate Bastard and Friends. This limited edition will feature such “friends” as artists TSOL, Knox from The Vibrators, FANG and Bill Collins.
The Dave Dalton Triple Pack will be available on 9th April on all the main digital download and streaming platforms, and can be pre-saved here. Limited edition copies of Hobo Circus on coloured vinyl will be available soon.
