Laurie Gallardo of 98.9 KUTX in Austin announced Ty Richards’ sophomore album and premiered the lead single live on the air today. Here’s what KUTX had to say:
Psych-rock spaceman Ty Richards just radioed down an exclusive premiere of “Merry-Go-Round” from his upcoming album, Welcome to Flat Earth, and we wanted to share it with you! For this song, the guitar slinger hangs up his ax and pulls out the synths for an epic 8-bit inspired exploration of the video game called life. So, grab a joystick hit play and enjoy the “Merry-Go-Round”!

Keep your eyes & ears pealed this fall for the national TV debut of Ty Richards’ music. His song “Going Out for a Cigarette” will be featured in the upcoming Season 8 of Showtime’s Shameless on Nov 12.
Howdy friends. My candid conversation with the one and only Dennis “The Menace” is airing this Sunday Aug 27 in seven cities across the globe. The hour will also feature my Musical Sandwich™ playlist. Dennis has over 30+ years as a radio personality on both the east and west coast. I’m humbled to join the ranks of personal heroes The Killers, of Montreal, Jon Brion, Travis, Phoenix, and OK Go. Just a few who have been featured on The Menace’s Attic/Just Another Menace Sunday. Tune in!
