The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project is following 2009’s acclaimed We Are Only Riders album with a second volume of the late Gun Club leader’s previously-unreleased works-inprogress, brought to life by old friends, collaborators and acolytes.

Pierce died from a brain haemorrhage in 1996 but left a legacy of unrecorded and unfinshed tracks. His band the Gun Club, poured America’s roots music forms into a post-punk blender, releasing a series of iconic albums in the ‘80s that influenced a generation of artists and songwriters.

On this compilation, artists spill into each other’s tracks, reinterpreting or finishing Pierce’s lyrical and melodic sketches, while some chose personal favourites from his catalogue.
