OUTLAWS & MOONSHINE – New Southern Rock Band To Release Debut Single

Posted in Music, rock bands, rock music, southern rock with tags , , , on May 4, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Outlaws And Moonshine - promo band photo - 2015 - #0504OMMO

outlawsandmoonshine.com,the Indiana based southern rock band is set to release their debut single and video titled ‘WHISKEY’ on May 12th. The single will be distributed digitally and is already available for pre-order across all major digital platforms. A sample of ‘WHISKEY’ can be heard here. The video will be released through Marvment Entertainment and Vevo.

Hailing as ‘new southern rock’, their signature sound comes from vocalist/guitarist and main songwriter Beau Van who crafts his songs after everyday life experiences. Beau’s unique approach is to use a balance of old school southern rock with a bit of today’s country rock and a whole lot of guitar. The end results are strong yet memorable songs that hook you and have you singing right along by the second chorus.

The band has recently aligned themselves with major industry players solidifying their brand by signing a sponsorship deal with Coldcock Whiskey in which Coldcock states; “We love you guys and would love to have you work with us”.

Outlaws & Moonshine also has endorsement deals with Amedia Cymbals, Pig Hog Cables, Queen City Drums, Spector Guitars, and Xcel Drumsticks.

The band heads back into the studio to finish up their debut E.P. later this month with plans to support the release with a summer tour. Outlaws & Moonshine are in talks with a national country artist to tour as direct support.

More information and updates can be found on the band’s website outlawsandmoonshine.com.

MOLLY HATCHET “Paying Tribute” – Cover Songs Album – Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, southern hard rock, southern rock, world news with tags , , , , , , , on February 7, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Molly Hatchet - Paying Tribute - promo cover pic

4 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall4

Molly Hatchet Paying Tribute was released back in 2013, via Collectors Dream Records. The mighty Molly Hatchet covers ten Rock classics, while adding three live bonus tracks; with all three being Molly Hatchet originals: Whiskey Man, Beatin’ The Odds and Flirtin’ With Disaster. Molly Hatchet covers songs from the legendary Thin Lizzy to Mountain, with The Rolling Stones in-between, making this CD ooze with Classic Rock appeal from its every crevice!

Molly Hatchet doesn’t try to reinvent these songs they cover so well; there are those ass kickin’ moments, (for example), where the guitar solo on Sharp Dressed Man is elongated from the original and (to me) that’s highly acceptable. If there is one constant, these cover songs are party ready and made to fuel my adrenaline into the Classic Southern Hard Rock realm. All three live original Molly Hatchet songs sound fabulous; making for a righteous hell-raising ending to this album. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Check out the back cover, with track listing and band info:

You might pay a little more for this imported CD, if you live in North America. Still, buying Paying Tribute is a necessity if you’re a Molly Hatchet and/or Southern Rock/Southern Hard Rock fanatic.

IRON TONGUE – Arkansas Southern Rock Miscreants Join Neurot Recordings

Album Details Revealed

Neurot Recordings is pleased to release the debut from Arkansas Southern Rock collective IRON TONGUE! Fronted by Chris “CT” Terry, the founding frontman of Sludge legion Rwake, IRON TONGUE formed when a group of veteran players with diverse musical backgrounds found a common interest in the need to get down and dirty and way, way gone.

Churning a soulful blend of girthy, heavily amped, blues-based rock, IRON TONGUE aren’t singing of magical moonlit escapades. The band offer up songs of pain, regret and heartache that recall everything from the proto-metal stomp of Blue Cheer and Grand Funk to the darkest hours of Kiss, Deep Purple, Buddy Guy and ‘Skynyrd. Having spent over three years performing steadily throughout the South, IRON TONGUE has traversed the Midwest and East Coast with Memphis kindred spirits The Dirty Streets, in addition to sharing bills with the likes of Black Tusk, Scott Kelly, The Sword, High on Fire, Crowbar, The Body, Lita Ford and fellow Arkansans Pallbearer. A split 7” with The Dirty Streets, featuring a ballsy version of KISS’s “Two Timer” served as a precursor to the creation of their debut full-length for Neurot.

Entitled The Dogs Have Barked, The Birds Have Flown, the seven track offering was recorded and produced by soundsmith Billy Anderson (Melvins, Sleep, Neurosis, etc) at IRON TONGUE guitarist Jason Tedford’s Wolfman Studios. Called “a solid slab of balls to the wall shameless rock, with a power and an edge and soul that rarely exists in music today,” by Neurosis’ Steve Von Till, The Dogs Have Barked, The Birds Have Flown is set for release via Neurot Recordings on May 27th in Europe and May 28th in North America.

Comments drummer Stan James of joining the Neurot family: “IRON TONGUE is excited and honored to be a part of the Neurot team! We are looking forward to working hard every step of the way and we are committed to making music that everyone will be proud of.”
