Ryan Adams Unleashes “Hell”

Unreleased tapes get out of limbo in November

Ryan Adams’ Love Is Hell will finally surface this fall as
a pair of EPs. The first part, Love Is Hell Vol. 1, is due
November 4th, the same day as Rock n Roll, Adams’ new
full-length. The second installment of Love will come out
December 9th.

The EPs will contain between six and eight songs each, and they
resolve a dispute between Adams and his label, Lost Highway.
Earlier this year, Adams said the label had rejected Love Is
, which he wanted to come out in March. “‘They’ don’t know
what to do with it,” he wrote at the time. “I’ve heard adjectives
like ‘incredibly too depressing’ and — this one’s funny — ‘dark.’
Also ‘not your best stuff.’ They just think it’s too alternative
rock or something.”

Adams is a famously prolific songwriter, but Rock n
will be his first studio album of new material since
2001’s Gold (he released the odds and ends demo collection
Demolition last year). Two more unreleased albums from the
backlog he’s built up in the last two years, 48 Hours and
The Suicide Handbook, are due to surface on an upcoming
box set.

Adams is planning a tour for the end of the year.
