Everyone’s favorite stoner comedian and movie enthusiast Doug Benson has just announced he’ll be releasing “Gateway Doug,” his sixth album, on July 9.
The album makes good on Benson’s aim to record a new album every April 20 with a subsequent summer release date for as many consecutive years as possible. This album was, indeed, recorded on that date in San Francisco and, according to a release, is about “bees, Ice Castles and inebriation.”
Whodathunk an album intentionally recorded on April 20 would deal with inebriation?
Still, pretty cool he’s being that prolific and specific with his target dates. I mean, how many live albums have you released in the last five or six years?
If you want to pre-order the album, which is being issued by Los Angeles comedy label Aspecialthing Records, you may do so here.
