Philly, PA (December 7, 2016) – Rise Records are thrilled to announce that they will be releasing the third full length album from DAVE HAUSE, entitled Bury Me In Philly, on February 3rd, 2017. The album was co-produced by Eric Bazilian, the guitar player and songwriter/vocalist for Philadelphia band The Hooters, who Hause calls, “a childhood local hero,” along with William Wittman, producer & engineer of albums by Mick Jagger, Cyndi Lauper, and countless others artists. Earlier today, Dave Hause partnered with Noisey to premiere the first track off the upcoming album, “With You,” which can be streamed here. (link). {Quote about track from premiere post}.

Dave Hause is often referred to as “The songwriter’s song writer”; here’s what a few of his contemporaries have to say about him and his music:

“From his work with the Loved Ones to his solo stuff, Dave Hause is a consistently passionate and engaging songwriter. He brings a sense of urgency to the page (and stage) that takes from the last 50 years of rock and roll and still sounds new and unique. Dave’s songs and performances should not be missed. Plus, he looks cool!”  - Craig Finn / The Hold Steady

“I've been sharing stages and singing with Dave Hause for 8 years now and he's still teaching me things I didn't know. A true diamond in the punk rock rough.”Frank Turner

“To play music is not just about one record or one show, it’s about whether you have the grit to keep going. I’ve played music long enough now to recognize the lifers and the tourists. Seeing the energy in which Dave Hause plays music, his ability to connect with a crowd, and listening to the depth of his songwriting, one realizes that his name is still going to be on that marquis in your town long after the tourists are gone.” -  Tim McIllrath / Rise Against 

“It has truly been an honor to watch such an incredible person become such an incredible artist.” - Matt Skiba / Alkaline Trio & Blink 182


Starting on March 1st, Dave Hause and his band, The Mermaid, will embark on a European tour; news of these dates which kick off in Cologne, Germany, comes shortly after Hause wrapped up a string of sold-out tour dates opening up for Bad Religion and Against Me! this past fall. Additionally, the singer has also toured alongside such notable acts such as Hot Water Music, The Gaslight Anthem, and Alkaline Trio, and performed at countless festivals including Reading/Leeds, Pukkelpop, and Hurricane / Southside
