Sounds | Whiskey Myers, The Wolf

Toen ik een tijdje terug een eerste song beluisterde, hoorde ik een zoveelste countryrockband aan het werk, niet slecht, maar ook niet echt speciaal. Whiskey Myers liet me er echter niet zo makkelijk vanaf komen. Luister maar eens naar deze slepende 'whatevergenre' rocker: barstensvol authentieke southern rock elementen waaronder spetterend solowerk, maar ook blazers die er een aparte touch aan geven, een intro die aan Dire Straits doet denken en een vrij rauwe, volle productie zodat het geheel niet te glad overkomt. Een band om in de gaten te houden.

Tonrillo verschijnt op 29 juli 2022 via Wiggy Thump Records.

Genre-bending band Whiskey Myers have played more than 2,500 live shows to ever-increasing crowd sizes since their emergence in 2007. In addition to headlining their own sold-out shows from coast to coast and performing at marquee festivals Bonnaroo, Stagecoach and more, the six-piece was also personally selected to open The Rolling Stones’ Chicago stadium show in 2019. Their forthcoming self-produced album,

Tornillo, set for release July 29, follows their fifth studio album, Whiskey Myers, out now on the band’s own Wiggy Thump Records, which debuted at No. 1 on both the Country and Americana/Folk sales charts, at No. 2 on the Rock chart and No. 6 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart (No. 3 among new releases). In total, Whiskey Myers have sold more than 1.3 million albums and amassed over 1.7 billion streams while earning four RIAA Gold & Platinum certifications.

The band known for their high-energy live show and unique sound has also earned sync success with features (and an on-screen appearance) in Paramount Network’s hit show “Yellowstone” as well as the Renée Zellweger-led Netflix series “What/If,” the Angelina Jolie film “Those Who Wish Me Dead” and hit CBS series “SEAL Team.” USA Today describes their sound as “a riff-heavy blend of Southern rock and gritty country that has earned comparisons to the Allman Brothers Band and Led Zeppelin,” with Rolling Stone noting “it’s the seminal combination of twang and crunchy rock & roll guitars that hits a perfect sweet spot.”
