Jesse Malin - You Know It's Dark When Atheists Start To Pray

Jesse Malin released his second album of 2015 today. It’s called Outsiders and was released on One Little Indian / Velvet Elk Records. Malin describes Outsiders as “a record built out of optimism and disgust – one for the leavers, the believers, the hustlers and the chicken hawks who could never catch us.” Malin will be playing Bowery Ballroom in NYC on December 29th in support of his new releases. Watch the music video below!

The first video off the album “You Know It’s Dark When The Atheists Start To Pray” plays into this rawness. Shot on a hot August day in New Orleans, Malin sought out locations around the city made famous by iconic films like Easy Rider and Jim Jarmusch’s Down By Law to serve as backdrops.

Malin released his album New York Before The War to great acclaim and he will be on the road for a handful of dates in 2015. On releasing two albums in one year, Malin told the Village Voice, “There are no rules in the music business anymore. I just do what I do.”
