Castle Face’s Live in SF series continues with Ty Segall Band

Castle Face is back with the fourth fifth installment of the label's Live in San Francisco series, featuring Ty Segall Band’s February 2014 performance at Rickshaw Stop. Just like when his other band Fuzz dropped the first Live in SF album, Segall is featured on the cover in black-and-white, but this time we don't see the frontman's mug. No, the photo is a closeup of his guitar shredding ... taken while he is crowd-surfing.

Following up Hair, his collaboration with White Fence, the Ty Segall Band is getting ready to release Slaughterhouse on June 26.

Slaughterhouse will be first album Segall has recorded with his touring band -- Mikal Cronin, Charlie Moothart, and Emily Rose Epstein.

Ty Segall Band releases 'Slaughterhouse' June 26 on In The Red

As if Ty Segall hasn't been tremendously busy working on a collaborative album with White Fence and a completely solo album, here comes a third one for 2012: the debut album from the Ty Segall Band. Slaughterhouse will drop June 26 on In The Red; the 11-song album comes in the fun, alternate form of a double 10-inch.
