King Dude @ Home Sweet Home in April (NYC) (more by Phil Maier)

Gothic troubadour King Dude (aka TJ Cowgill) is set to welcome his new album, Burning Daylight, on October 16 via DAIS Records. The LP serves as the follow-up to 2011's great Love, and you can take a listen to/watch the video for its lead single "Jesus in the Courtyard" at the bottom of this post. This past June, King Dude released a new 7" single of "You Can Break My Heart." That track will be appearing on Burning Daylight, and you can also stream both sides of the 7" below.

TJ is set to begin touring throughout North America later this month. Many of his dates are with Psychic TV, but he's also got a few headlining shows. One of those headlining shows is at the Empty Bottle on December 12. Tickets for that show go on sale this Friday (10/12) at 10AM CST.
