Indie artist Ron Gallo traditionally uses his pursuits to comment on political, social and environmental issues. He has recently announced his book Social Meteor, a companion piece to his latest album Foreground Music, which is out now on Kill Rock Stars.

The 106-page collection is Gallo’s debut literary pursuit and features “journal entries, rants, essays, local reviews, interactive sections, graphics and other random nonsense”. They all offer fans a deeper look into the thoughts and mindsets that ultimately became the album. With a tongue-in-cheek comment on the country’s capitalistic agenda, the book will be released on April 18th, 2023 aka U.S. Tax Day.

Gallo’s Spring tour kicks off next week in Boston. Fans around the world are invited to celebrate the release of Social Meteor on April 18th with a special rooftop concert film livestream and book reading event that evening. The film captures Gallo’s performance of the new album in full.

Gallo has shared the stage with the likes of Spoon, Parquet Courts, Ty Segall, Hurray For the Riff Raff, Twin Peaks, The Black Angels, Thee Oh Sees, Caroline Rose, Wilco, J. Mascis, Courtney Barnett, and Post Animal.
