 By Blurt Staff

 Here’s first new song from Pretty Boy Thorson & The Falling Angels (feat Jesse Thorson of The Slow Death) titled “Blameless” off the band’s upcoming new album An Uneasy Peace out November 12th on Kiss of Death Records. Thorson and his band will be touring w/The Slow Death next month as well.

The backstory: Jesse Thorson formed Pretty Boy Thorson in Minneapolis, MN with Dan Johnson in 2005. They initially formed to play one show in Fargo, ND for a festival their friend was setting up, found a rhythm section and started playing shows more regularly. The band released their first self titled 7″ in 2005 on The Party’s Over records from Seattle. The rhythm section quit so Thorson took over on bass and Casey Raub joined on drums in 2006. They self released their first full length “Ain’t it Funny…”.later re-released by A.D.D. Records. Dave Strait and Matt Englestad joined the band which went on to tour the u.s. three times, and in 2008 followed it up with their second record “Take it Easy…” also on A.D.D.

 The band went on to release over a dozen 7-inches on multiple labels “…too many to name.” remembers Thorson. “We broke up in 2010 due to Casey and Dan moving to Brooklyn and Portland, OR respectively. Me and Dave started The Slow Death, more of a straight ahead punk band. In 2011 Dan moved back and we played a one off reunion show, we all got too drunk to remember playing so we booked another one. We had fun so we decided to get back together and make another record. We decided to make a more mellow country record. We spent six months writing together, and working on the tunes whereas I had written most everything in advance and we just learned them, this time we arranged everything as a band. We took a lot of time making this record, and now it is done.”
