The Jesus Lizard's David Yow announces solo debut

David Yow, actor, visual artist and frontman of The Jesus Lizard has announced his first solo album. The record is titled Tonight You Look Like a Spider and is due out June 25, 2013 via Joyful Noise. Yow wrote a note to share the release:

I was out dancing through the filthy streets of Chicago when I ran into a fella who goes by the name of Mike [Patton]. He grabbed me violently by my dry and flakey shoulders and screamed at the top of his carbon flavored lungs, "YOU'RE MAKING A SOLO RECORD AND I'M PUTTING IT OUT WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT!" He was right about the first part. I rented a saxophone for 2 months, I borrowed some guitars and some drums, I rummaged through the kitchen, I squeezed a fat cat, I poked and prodded and ended up with my very own music. It's real good, if you like that kind of shit. I named it after a spider I saw one night.

Along with the normal vinyl and digital releases, Yow is putting together a limited edition which includes a large block of cement.
