Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. new album

June 7 Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr's latest album hits stores. If you wish to ride the bike before you buy it (and oh, you definitely should!), then you can! The promotional video can be viewed here. They do a nice job of playing off their band name as the video begins with someone taking off a race car driving suit with the Cheerios label branded on the front. Underneath the race car outfit is a man in a suit and it ends with the two of them shaking hands. A play off the corporate name, I take it. Well I now for one am anxious to see what the rest of the songs sound like and are about.

The group finished a tour up this spring and appeared at South by Southwest. They were also recently featured on ABC and the interview can be seen here.
