The Rowdymen Roar Back

The Rowdymen are finally releasing their third album with a release party this Saturday, December 5th at Times Change(d) High and Lonesome Club. I've been waiting for this one for years, but it's worth the wait. The band's delivered straightahead rockin' in Johnny Rumble, the Elvis-meets-the-Honeydrippers Too Little Too Late, the soulful, alt-country brilliance of Ode to Possum, and the infectious shit-kickin' country lament Rode Hard. Head Rowdyguy J. Allen's songwriting has grown in leaps and bounds, original finger-picker Robert L. Pachol is back in the fold, and the amazing Joanne Rodriguez lends a hand on some backing vocals. I'm jumpin' up and down right now.

You can stream the whole album and pick up the free mp3 for Johnny Rumble here or download here.
