Patton Oswalt Signs To Sub Pop - New Record in July - Tour Dates (w/ Janeane Garofalo)

DOWNLOAD: Dukes of Hazzard (MP3)

Joining the ranks of David Cross and Eugene Mirman as awesome comedians who've signed to awesome indie rock label Sub Pop, it has been announced that Patton Oswalt's next record will be released by Sub Pop on 7/10/07. This will be Patton's third-ish full-length live record in a sea of Patton-related full-lengths and EPs. People will also be able to get this album on vinyl.

His previous releases are, for me, the gold standard of how awesome a comedy album can be. Unlike a lot of other comedy records out there, his library has an unusually high relistenability factor. So I have high hopes for this one.

Patton and the other Comedians of Comedy were at Coachella this year. There are tons of reviews out there, but why not read Patton's personal analysis of the show (you'll need to scroll down a bit). Pics from Coachell can be found HERE and HERE
