It’s the weekend and what better way to get your Saturday going with some new music?
Today it’s from the Brooklyn-based rock and rollers Skunkmello and the track’s called “Slaughterhouse Blues” from their forthcoming album, Hot Chicken, due out June 10th. The track was featured on The AU Review who called it a “Brazen fusion of rock and blues.” Listen to it below:
Skunkmello criss-crossed the country and graced the stages of national venues and music festivals, including SXSW, CMJ and Musikfest. Blending the influences of classic rockers and blues artists, such as Creedence Clearwater Revival, Townes Van Zandt and The Rolling Stones, Skunkmello celebrate the traditions of rock ‘n’ roll with brazen irreverence. “Hard-luck cowboys, southern souls in the big city and they represent the best of what the old south has to offer in midst of all that hard rock, indie and pop.” (Ryan’s Smashing Life)
Blending the influences of classic rockers and blues artists, such as Creedence Clearwater Revival, Towns Van Zandt and The Rolling Stones, Skunkmello celebrate the traditions of rock ‘n’ roll with brazen irreverence. The group’s three previous releases,Whiskey & Oatmeal EP (2012), 2013’s Lowlife Dreams EP (produced by the band and mastered by Grammy Award-winner Brian Lucey, best known for his work on The Black Keys’ Brothers and El Camino) and 2014’s Stars & Stripes, have all met with critical acclaim. Matt Bartlett (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Ed Cuervo (guitar, vocals), Jay Holt (bass, vocals) and Jono Ori (drums, vocals) are set to serve up their next full-length,Hot Chicken, this year.
Keep your eyes peeled for more “refreshing blasts of rock and blues” (RiffRaff) from Skunkmello, leading into their fourth studio album.
