Seattle’s Rocky Votolato has been relentlessly on tour over the last two decades, as a compelling Singer Songwriter or with his former cult-punkband Waxwing. Ten years after Makers and its evergreen ‘White Daisy Passing’, Votolato returns on tour throughout Europe presenting the new EP Sawdust and Shavings. A follow up to his latest, eighth album Hospital Handshakes (2015), produced by Chris Walla (Ex-Death Cab for Cutie) and released on Glitterhouse Records in 2015, the new effort showcases stripped down, intimate versions of songs from his last full-length, including its title track featuring Emily Kokal of Warpaint along with ‘Shortcuts’ and several other previously unreleased tracks. The new video for the dark and hauntingly beautiful “Sawdust and Shavings” has been made by the filmmaker and Wim Wenders' director-assistant Luca Lucchesi.
