Heads up, Kiefer Sutherland fans! Turns out, Kevin Bacon’s not the only former FOX network star to turn his attention to music.

In 2002, Sutherland launched the Ironworks record label with his friend and music partner, Jude Cole, setting their sights on affording bigger opportunities to local talent.  Sutherland left the label in 2009, returning to music in early 2015, when he reunited with Cole and began penning and assembling songs for what would become Down In A Hole.

“It’s the closest thing I’ve ever had to a journal or diary,” said Sutherland in a press release announcing the album and tour.  “All of these songs are pulled from my own personal experiences. There is something very satisfying about being able to look back on my own life, good times and bad, and express those sentiments in music. As much as I have enjoyed the writing and recording process, I am experiencing great joy now being able to play these songs to a live audience, which was something I hadn’t counted on.”

Sutherland will play the POTUS in the upcoming ABC conspiracy thriller Designated Survivor. In the meantime, here’s where to see the Lost Boy turned music man:
