Out of Pocket” is the band’s first new song since the release of their 2020 album The Human Conditionand is another trademark rocker from their locker. Emotionally rousing with a roof-raising battle crychorus, it shows the band at their anthemic best. The lifelong friends Chris Robertson, vocals/guitar; BenWells, guitar/vocals; and John Fred Young, drums, welcome their new bass player Steve Jewell on his first studio recordings, having slayed the stages with them over the past two years. Talking about the song Chris Robertson says, “’Out of Pocket’ is a song born out of that exact feeling. The song was what I personally, and I think a lot of us, felt over these very trying last couple of years. Facing your demons, knowing that you have to come out the other side stronger than before.” Over the past two decades, the Kentucky Southern rockers have shaken stages from arenas to festivals across Europe, bringing the good times every time. In 2021 they fulfilled a lifetime ambition of playing London’s iconicRoyal AlbertHall, bringing an incredibly emotional and powerful performance. Now it’s time to blow the roof off those arenas once again. Black Stone Cherry have 2023 firmly in their sights and are taking it, lock, stockand barrel.
One of the most crowd-thrilling bands to burst on to the national scene in recent years, Giovannie andThe Hired Guns have pushed the boundaries of rock-and-roll and country to forge an irresistibly gritty sound all their own.After building a massive grassroots following on the strength of their explosive live show, the Stephenville, Texas based five-piece ascended to new heights with their smash hit“Ramon Ayala”—a 2021 release that climbed to #1 on theActive Rock Radio Chart and the Alternative Radio Chart, marking the first time in over 15 years that an artist’s first career-charting radio single reached the top spot on both tallies.Fueled by the enormous success they’ve achieved as an entirely independent act, Giovannie andTheHired Guns have now signed toWarner Music Nashville just in time for the release of their third full-length, Tejano Punk Boyz:an immediately vital body of work cementing their status as an essential new force in redefining the possibilities ofTexas music.The start of a bold new era for Giovannie andThe Hired Guns—vocalist Giovannie Yanez, guitarists Carlos Villa and Jerrod Flusche, bassist Alex Trejo, and drummer Milton Toles—Tejano Punk Boyz expands on the wildly catchy brand of guitar-heavy alt-rock they first honed back when Yanez was working the counter at a local pawn shop. Like their self-titled 2020 sophomore effort, the 10-track album finds the band joining forces with producerTaylorKimball(Koe Wetzel, Read Southall Band, Austin Meade),fully harnessing the band-of-brothers chemistry that makes their live sets o exhilarating.In addition to delivering songs in both English and Spanish for the very first time,T ejano Punk Boyz doubles down on the culture-bending sensibilities that have long guided the band, fusing elements of everything fromRed Dirt country to post-grunge to la musica norteña.
