Jay Reatard Sets the Date



A date has been set for the long-awaited release of Jay Reatard's first studio album for indie stalwart Matador Records. The album, titled Watch Me Fall, will be released on August 18th, Matador has announced.

The first single from the album, "It Ain't Gonna Save Me" is currently available for download on Reatard's own web site. The album will be Reatard's first proper album release since 2006's breakthrough Blood Visions. Reatard will presumably show off some of the material at the Hi-Tone Cafe Friday, July 10th, where he'll team up with TV Smith, frontman of classic first-generation British punk band the Adverts.
