TONIGHT IS NOT THE NIGHT 7" RELEASE
AUGUST 2022: Jeremy Porter and The Tucos
along with GTG Records
announce the release of their new single
“Tonight Is Not the Night”
on 7” limited edition opaque red vinyl! This is The Tucos’ sixth 7” single
and their first release since the 3-CD career retrospective Bottled Regrets: The First Ten Years
The songs were recorded during the Candy Coated Cannonball
sessions in the winter of 2020, just before the
Covid 19 pandemic shut the music industry and the rest of the world down. Both songs are previously unreleased and will be
available initially only on vinyl and digitally through the accompanying download card that will be included with the record.
says "These weren’t exactly leftovers from the Candy Coated Cannonball
album, but intentionally set aside
for the single. The A-side, “Tonight Is Not the Night” was played live a few times leading up to the recording of that record.
It’s your standard Tucos midwestern-powerpop-heartbreak song, and the B-Side, “DTW” is our twangy/honkytonk-instrumental
answer to Rush
’s “YYZ,” played live more often than not these days. We worked it up as the theme song for an animated series
in 2019 that never got off the ground, so it needed a home!"
Cover art is the painting “A Slight Change of Plans
” by long-time friend Nick Walters
, from Lexington, Kentucky
. “Nick’s a good
friend from way back, when we first went to Lexington. He’s an amazing artist, and I saw this painting and couldn’t stop staring
at it. It just captures such a great image that goes along with the songs and also stays consistent with our other 7” records
that all use illustrations and paintings for cover art.” Each 7” includes a hand-silkscreened insert and a download card.
The 7” will be released on September 9th, 2022
and supported on the Tucos’ Fall Tour across the eastern and southern US and Canada. Pre-orders start August 12th
and will ship in advance of the release.

Jeremy Porter and The Tucos are a rock and roll band from Detroit, Michigan. They sound like
guitars and whiskey, hooks and heartache, energy and passion. You'll find everything from
Cheap Trick to Gram Parsons, Hüsker Dü to Uncle Tupelo, Merle Haggard to AC/DC on their
turntables. The racket they make is a little bit of each. It's Detroit rock and roll,
even if Detroit isn't quite ready for it.
Jeremy Porter grew up in Marquette, a small town in Michigan's upper peninsula, where he was a founding
member of one of the UP's first punk bands - The Regulars. He moved to Detroit and tore through the 90s and
00s fronting bands like SlugBug,
The OffRamps and Fidrych (as well as a solo stint) through 2 decades of
recording and touring before forming The Tucos in 2009. Gabriel Doman (Hotwalls) and Jake Riley (Big Shoals, Jake Riley & The Social Workers) round out the trio.
- JP & The Tucos have released four full-length LPs, six 7"s, and a slew of contributions to comps.
- They've toured the US and Canada multiple times - playing
festivals, theaters, clubs, corner bars, and coffee shops from
Boston to Houston, Colorado to Montrèal, Minneapolis to
Jacksonville, and all points between.
- In 2018 they toured the UK, playing 9 shows in 9 nights, including two nights in London and a showcase at the Swansea (Wales) Fringe Festival.
- They've become one of the go-to support acts for national acts
coming through Detroit, opening for Soul Asylum, Cracker, Lydia Loveless, Jesse Malin,
Supersuckers, Beach Slang, Jesse Dayton, Sponge, American Aquarium, Deadstring
Brothers, Two Cow Garage, Whitey Morgan, LA Witch, Tim
Barry, Old Man Markley and many more.
The Tucos fourth album "Candy Coated Cannonball" is AVAILABLE NOW and the band is actively supporting it on the road.
