Celebrating their 35th Anniversary together, Atlanta-based folk rock act, Drivin N Cryin, have spent most of their career on tour. In October 1985 Drivin N Cryin played their first show at Atlanta's famed 688 Club. The band quickly gained attention for their blistering live shows, and amassed a rabid fanbase in the fertile soil of the late-1980s Southeast music scene.

Now, 35 years later, and after releasing four full length albums on Island Records and one on Geffen Records, founding members Kevn Kinney and Tim Nielsen find themselves enjoying a milestone anniversary for the band, having survived the pressures of fame, a shifting musical landscape, multiple lineup changes, and miles of back roads and highways to arrive here.

After a gold record, 9 full-length albums, and a handful of EPs to their credit, the band still refuses to rest. In 2019, the band celebrated the release of their 9th studio album, 'Live the Love Beautiful'. Produced by Nashville's, and former band member, Aaron Lee Tasjan, the album was released on Drivin N Cryin Records to much praise. Comfortable with their past and confident in their future, the band has an arsenal of songs, a full tank of gas, and no plans of stopping any time soon.

Hailing from the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada, and with a family lineage of ranchers and rodeo people, Lund is about as authentic as they come. Embracing his Western heritage through his music, Lund has been known to touch on a range of cowboy themes past and present - from rough-and-tumble tales of lawless frontier saloons, to the somber realities of running a modern family ranch.  

Corb Lund has received multiple CCMA, Juno, and international award nominations and wins.  His seventh album, Cabin Fever, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Canadian Charts; three of his records have been certified Gold, and his latest studio album, Things That Can't Be Undone, produced by Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell), cemented his status as one of the best contemporary country singer/songwriters working today. NPR said "The album is a high mark of a long career" while Rolling Stone named him one of the "10 New Country Artists You Need to Know" stating, "Things That Can't Be Undone finds Lund flirting in fresh sonic waters, while still keeping his sardonic mix of eerie lyrics and deceptively joyful vamps well intact."  PopMatters exclaimed, "Melodically engaging and narratively compelling, Things That Can't Be Undone furthers the case for Corb Lund as one of the best contemporary country songwriters."    

Corb Lund released an EP of cover songs, Cover Your Tracks on September 13th via New West Records in the US and Warner Music in Canada. The EP presents some of the songs by others that Lund says have inspired him throughout his career. His forthcoming full-length album of original songs will be released in early 2020.

Lauren Morrow
After over a decade as the centerpiece of popular Americana band The Whiskey Gentry, Lauren Morrow packed her bags, her dogs, her cats, and husband and moved to Nashville to pursue a career as a solo artist and grow her craft as a songwriter and performer. Within months, she released her first solo EP to widespread critical acclaim and landed on many Best of 2018 year ends lists from Rolling Stone to Garden & Gun, quickly launching her already budding career and sending it into hyperdrive. Over the next year, Morrow filmed an episode for PBS’ Bluegrass Underground and toured the US playing festivals such as Pickathon and Bristol Rhythm & Roots to name a few. In November 2019, Morrow began recording her first solo, full-length album at the legendary Nashville studio, Sound Emporium. Set to release in 2020, Morrow’s new album showcases her flawless vocals and intricate songwriting, but also her willingness to take risks — an edge that makes her stand out from the Nashville norm. Whether she’s singing an alternative/indie rock banger, a classic-country cooner, or a traditional lovesick ballad, there’s a unique impression she leaves that lingers and is unlike anything you’ve heard before.

If you like your top shelf sludge metal infused with a bit of swing, groove, and melody, Leather Lung is here to make not only your day, but probably the rest of your otherwise miserable goddamn year: Lonesome, On’ry and Evil is kind of like running Melvins-esque heft and the more eclectic Acid Bath moments through the Clutch machine. Solid rock n’ roll delightfully perverted by fuzz and nasty, heavy riffs, in other words.
— Decibel Magazine

Hailing from a basement in Portland, Oregon, Stoner follows the Riff through the wormholes of swampy grooves, classic rock and Volume. The three piece band, consisting of Shawn Baravetto, Caleb Barton and Eric Oberste, pour their combined energy into live sonic experiences that encompass heavy riffs, fast chugging guitars and grooves throughout.

Over the past couple of decades, tribute bands have become big business in the world of concert promotion. And, not surprisingly, the more popular ones are the acts that are most authentic. Such is the case with Cash’d Out (Douglas Benson vocals, Kevin Manuel guitar, George Bernardo drums, and Stephen Rey bass), a San Diego based band, that channels Johnny Cash in about as close a manner to the real thing as it gets. How can you tell? Well, beyond critics having anointed Cash’d Out the “next best thing to Johnny Cash,” and the group having won six San Diego Music Awards for Best Tribute Band, and being the only tribute band endorsed by the official Johnny Cash web page, JohnnyCash.com, the real proof lies in what members of Cash’s inner circle have said. “Cindy Cash came to a show, we made her cry and she gave me a necklace with Johnny's hair in a glass locket,” explains front man Douglas Benson. Benson added that Cash producer Lou Robin has also been to several Cash’d Out shows, and claimed that if he closedit eyes it was like “going back in time.” After eleven years, hundreds of thousands of miles on the road and many more fans, those fans continually tell the group how grateful they are that Cash’d Out continues to bring back memories of loved ones who once raised them on the music of Johnny Cash. Cash’d Out’s highlights have been many, W.S. Holland, Cash’s longtime drummer, sat in with Cash’d Out at a birthday celebration for Johnny Cash hosted by Bill and Shannon Miller of JohnnyCash.com at the Fender Museum in Corona, California. “And Bill let me play Johnny’s cherry sunburst Guild guitar,” added Benson. Cash'd Out has over 150 of JC's songs in their repertoire, including the June Carter Cash duets brought back to fame in the Oscar winning film, Walk the Line. Cash'd Out also tailors performances to suit any venue or function --from clubs, theatres, fairs and casinos to museums and corporate events. The band’s live shows respectfully reference the late, great Man in Black's Sun Records and early Columbia era sound, combined with the energy of the classic multi-platinum live recordings from Folsom Prison and San Quentin. The group's genuine love (and authentic recreation) of Johnny Cash’s music and its universal appeal fans of all ages and of virtually all musical genres makes each Cash’d Out show a must-see event. Or as Miller says, “Some people are impressionists. These guys leave an impression.” For more information, please visit www.cashdout.com

Supersuckers "Play That Rock-n-Roll" (Acetate Records) Stellar thirteenth album from Seattle's finest cowboy-hat rockers.
- - - - - - - - - - - -
Hot on the heels of 2018's fiery "Suck It" -- and a jaw-dropping 21 years since their landmark "Evil Powers Of Rock 'N' Roll" album -- Supersuckers deliver what is certainly their loudest and heaviest record yet. This is not the standard trajectory for bands that have been wearing cowboy hats for the past 20 years; they've usually devolved into crying-into-my-beer pedal-steel bullshit at this point. But not our beloved 'Suckers. - - - - - - - - - - - -

Originating in Caracas, Venezuela, Los Amigos Invisibles have fired up international dance floors for nearly 30 years with an array of Latin and Caribbean grooves, funk, acid jazz, twisted disco, global pop, and alt-rock. It's all marinated in peppery eccentricities, prompting erstwhile residency on David Byrne's Luaka Bop label as well as multiple Grammy nominations. Prince, classic soul, salsa, and merengue are just a smattering of their persistent influences. The group recently followed up 2017's El Paradise with the steamy single "Tócamela," which taps funky rhythms, chattering guitar and vintage slippery synths.

The Devil has always been there. He is the great outsider, the original iconoclast. He is a conniving little shit and never seems to tire of giving humanity a wedgie or a wet willie just for a laugh. The Devil is capable of taking many forms. He can exist as one being or spread out amongst many. He can present himself as an ordinary man or as a horrific cloven-hoofed beast depending on his mood. Above all else, The Devil lives to corrupt, to adulterate, to defile. Electric Six has often used The Devil as subject matter for its songs because of that last bit, the part about corruption and adulteration. That’s what Electric Six has been trying to do with its music now for quite some time!!!! We want to corrupt young women….just like The Devil!!! There’s nothing more rewarding than the seduction of a young innocent maiden, forcing her to wear demonic dresses, levitating her towards the great fiery skull and watching her eyes turn black as she gives into evil and becomes the bride of The Devil!!!! That….is why we started this band….to help women realize their potential as sexy evil maidens with eyes reflecting the utter darkness of a corrupted soul. With its fourteenth studio album Bride of the Devil, Electric Six examines the concepts of evil and corruption, humanity’s various falls from grace, the nine circles of purgatory and of course, the internet itself. Bride of the Devil opens with the thunderous opener “The Opener”, a bombastic celebration of the arena rock Electric Six never got to play. The next two numbers are textbook ear worm guitar pop numbers that deal with debilitating income inequality and nepotism (“Daddy’s Boy”) and the horrors of being forced into a pool of toxic waste by an a rabid Doberman trained to kill (“(It Gets) (A Little) Jumpy”). And then we get to the title track, a radio anthem, where it all becomes clear that The Devil is a metaphor for Russia and the United States is the young girl who is seduced, corrupted and wedded into a Satanic covenant with the beast. It’s all there in black and white. The Carrie Underwood-esque lyrics alongside a backdrop of vodka and caviar and backchannels and Seychllian bank accounts. That’s how they did it. They went after our country performers and got the rubes to feel good about being Russian assets. And still, it is the feel-good anthem of the summer.

Speedealer originally formed in 1992 in Lubbock, TX, under the name REO Speedealer. In 1997 when REO Speedwagon served the band a cease-and-desist order on their moniker, they shortened their name to Speedealer and released their debut, self-titled album on Royalty Records. The following year, after the departure of drummer Todd Mcglaulin and guitarist Mike Noyes, the hard rocking foursome — made up of singer/guitarist Jeff Hirshberg, bassist Rodney Skelton, and newly added drummer Harden Harrison(Rigor Mortis) and guitarist Eric Schmidt(Pervis) –, recorded and released their follow-up record, Here Comes Death, on the same label. Royalty Records went bankrupt soon after the band’s second release, leaving Speedealer to their own devices for exposure.

For more than 27 years, the NYC-based and critically acclaimed Slackers have been touring the world with their blend of Ska, Reggae, and Soul. Since the early 1990s, the Slackers have released fifteen records and countless singles while their live performances feed their fans with their energetic sets of ecstatic music. And the press agrees: Modern Vinyl says "For some bands, hitting 25 years together seems light years away. For The Slackers, it's a cause for celebration.

The band is deeply rooted within the ska movement, while their self-proclaimed "Jamaican Rock n' Roll" sound sets them apart from many bands today. Other press state that the Slackers are "the best ska band in the world" (Rude International), "the pick of the US crop" (Metal Hammer), "the sound of New York' (New York Times), "is about as close to perfect as it gets" (Ink 19), and "one of the best bands in the United States" (axs.com). Their festival performances have included Punk Rock Bowling, Fest Florida, Boomtown Fair, Santa Monica Pier Twilight Concert Series, Rebellion Fest, Summerjam, Mighty Sounds, Ruhrpott Rodeo, Shamballa, Pouzza Fest, Montreal Jazz Festival, Austin Reggae Fest, Dour Fest, Lowlands, and many others.

Their headline dates include venues such as a 3-night stand at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, Slim's in San Francisco, House of Blues in Anaheim, Irving Plaza in NYC, a 2 night stand at the Bell House in Brooklyn, 3-night stand at Reggie's in Chicago, and a 3-night stand at the Flamingo Cantina in Austin.
