Spanish Gold, the rock ‘n’ roll power trio comprised of local guitarist and composer Adrian Quesada (best known for his work with Grupo Fantasma and Brownout) My Morning Jacket’s Patrick Hallahan and Dante Schwebel of Hacienda, has a debut full-length ready to drop on May 27. The album”South of Nowhere,” has been in development for almost two years. It was recorded at studios in Nashville, Louisville and Austin.

In addition to the full-length the group is releasing a special limited edition vinyl seven inch for Record Store Day. The seven inch will feature the band’s first single “Out on the Street” along with a cover of Ghetto Brothers’ 1971 hit “There Is Something In My Heart.” You can preview the Ghetto Brothers’ track at KCRW.

To support the album the group will hit the road this summer for an extensive tour that doesn’t roll into Austin until June 19 when the band plays the Parish. Tickets for the Parish show go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at c3concerts.com. — Deborah Sengupta Stith
