Watch an all-new Chuck Prophet video travelogue now at Blurt Online.



New Chuck Prophet Video Travelogue + 7
By Fred Mills

Chuck Prophet’s label Yep Roc has announced the second part of an EPK Prophet filmed giving a tour around his city of San Francisco to help promote his latest album Temple Beautiful. You can view both parts below.


He also has a new pumpkin orange colored 7 inch coming out on 10/30. Side A is “Castro Halloween” from Temple Beautiful and Side B is a song called “I Gotta Get Back” that was recorded during the sessions for Temple Beautiful but did not make it on to the record. “Castro Halloween,” according to the label, “celebrates, as well as laments the demise of, the legendary Halloween parties that used to go down annually in San Francisco’s Castro District. Sadly, they were abruptly canceled/banned by the city a few years back after some scuffles led to gunfire. The party ended, but the spirit lives on in this driving rock n roll number with doo-wop vocal cadences, pulsing rhythms and those ringing guitar lines.” The flipside is described as “a sort of road song, in that great rock n roll tradition, wailing with longing and restlessness.”

Prophet heads out on the road later this week, including a high profile appearance at Yep Roc’s anniversary celebration YR15 on Oct. 1. Tour dates are:

10/5/12 – Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival – San Francisco, CA
