The Dirty Knobs Go On Tour
By DONNA BALANCIA
Mike Campbell and The Dirty Knobs have released the single and the video for the title track “Wreckless Abandon” from the band’s debut album, which drops March 20.
The video for The Dirty Knobs’ original single features the band in a muted, but colorful setting on the grounds of the Zorthian Ranch in Altadena.
The upbeat song has all the hallmarks of a Campbell-penned tune, Campbell was the driving force of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. “Wreckless Abandon” starts out with a cool sitar sound that quickly builds to brisk pace and conjures up a sense of driving freedom.
The new album takes Campbell’s former “side project” to a new level and the new album is highly anticipated.
The Dirty Knobs are a favorite to many, with their own special fans who have come to know the live performances as humorous, giving a great vibe of being one big family.
The video for “Wreckless Abandon” is directed by Ryan Daniel Browne and produced by Jackii Chun. It was shot at the Zorthian Ranch in Altadena, California.
The Dirty Knobs will hit the road with an April 7 stop at The Independent in San Francisco and an April 10 show at The Troubadour in LA.
