RECORD STORE DAY 2020 RELEASE - AUGUST 29TH DROP
Limited to 500 Copies
This double LP re-issue of the Texan band’s second studio album, originally issued in 2011, comes complete with original artwork, lyrics plus three bonus tracks; it’s a first time on vinyl (outside of the US) for a record that saw Whiskey Myers finding their collective voice, taking more time in the studio and selecting a producer who encouraged them to develop their own ideas.Whiskey Myers did not want to follow in anyone else’s bootsteps, and the decision to ask Leroy Powell to helm the ‘Firewater’ recordings was made with originality in mind – the desire to put their own spin on southern rock ‘n’ roll. Brent Cobb’s ‘Bar, Guitar and a Honky Tonk Crowd’ was picked as lead single due to its rock ‘n’ roll edge, and Powell’s name figures in the writing credits across three of the tracks, but there’s no question that the songs penned or co-penned by the band themselves are right up there with the best, carrying a stamp of authenticity that only comes from living by a chosen set of rules
