    Fly like an Eagle (of Death metal!) Dangerbird Records announces the long-awaited upcoming full-length solo debut of Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes. Hughes, recording for the first time under the moniker Boots Electric, is currently holed up in Dangerbird's own Los Angeles studios with Tony Hoffer, the in-demand producer of artists including The Kooks, Beck, Depeche Mode, Supergrass and Air, just to name a few.

    Hughes is planning to release the as-yet-untitled Boots Electric album in fall 2011. In addition to Hughes' solo compositions, Boots Electric will also feature material co-written with legendary keyboardist, bandleader and Beastie Boys sideman Money Mark.

    "The decision to work with Dangerbird beyond mere management was a relatively easy one. A decision that made itself," said Hughes. "Reaching beyond the basics we've become personal friends and I've never been so supportive in my exploration of music as an art - whatever that is - and supported in a way that should be, but never is. Not to mention the team of actual people, not robots."

    Hughes and longtime friend Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) formed Eagles of Death Metal in 1998 in Palm Desert, CA.
