Crushed Out to tour in support of Alien Ocean

Crushed Out is husband-and-wife team Frankie Sunswept on guitar and Moselle Spiller on drums. Yet when they take the stage, they’re so much more than that — they’re the sun and the moon, the push and pull of tides, the rumble of kinetic momentum balanced on the tip of a surfboard.
Alien Ocean (2016) is Crushed Out’s most definitive, cohesive, fleshed out album to date. Frankie dubs drunken lap steel, bassy analog synths, electric piano and Hammond organ, while Moselle’s passion and invention gives each track its own heartbeat. Frankie’s signature guitar tone, sometimes mystically fuzzing, at other times shimmering clean, recalls ’60s surf culture and roaring cave creatures alike. The album tackles sophisticated themes, from love and communication to alienation and personal freedom, all while keeping it fun, heavy and wet.
Alien Ocean releases September 30, 2016, via the band’s own imprint Cool Clear Water Records, available on limited 12-inch vinyl LP (buy here), CD, as well as all digital formats.
Crushed Out hit the hot tar this Fall for a full North American tour. Look out for their live show featuring an immersive David Lynch-ian Tiki bar stage world complete with electric palm trees, black flamingos and much that you’d expect to find at the shores of an Alien Ocean. Over 5 years touring through 45 US states, Crushed Out has clocked 600+ shows, connecting with friends and fans in all corners of the country.
