Pencil this in for May 16th - VIETNAM at Blind Pig Ann Arbor

VietNam marked their long-awaited return with the release of their new  full-length album, an A.merican D.ream, on Mexican  Summer last month.  Michael Gerner, the creative force  behind VietNam, is back for the first time in five years with a new  six-piece lineup laying down their renowned signature cocktail of  apocalyptic street blues.

 Produced by Matt Boynton (Kurt Vile,  Gang Gang Dance, Beirut, etc), an A.merican D.ream is  a dark, cinematic concrete ride that  revs through demons and detours with greasy grace.

 After taking a long break to explore his  interest in ambient analog synth soundscapes on the West Coast  (scoring films and recording with his project D.A.), Gerner has now  made a bold comeback to both New York City and rock and roll with his  best record to date - adding a new dimension to the instrumentation with  a moog player and a violinist.

 Throughout the 2000's,  vocalist/guitarist/songwriter Gerner and his revolving lineups spent  years tirelessly burning up America's moonlit highways and releasing  memorable records that include the critically-acclaimed self-titled  debut LP on Kemado Records in 2007, three prior EP's  on The Social Registry, and their debut, 
The Concrete?s  Always Grayer  on the Other Side of the Street on Vice Records in 2003. When the  work, hopes, and dreams finally culminated in a crescendo of across the-board success,  Michael Gerner and Vietnam disappeared without a trace…until now.
