about

Single release from the forthcoming double album 'The Roads We Ride'

‘The Roads We Ride’ is a film noir script.
A storyboard.
A concept album.
Cinematic theatre.
A cheap novel in a dime-store.
The story of three people and the paths they take...

'Night of the Hunter' is a tale about one of them

'The open road, the desert and with endless hours to kill.
Johnny turns on the radio and drives, drives, drives…!'

The double CD album 'The Roads We Ride' releases on 15th March 2019 on Mescal Canyon Records


Press Quotes:

"This single tears out of the speakers with awesome power and an almost malevolent edginess. Brayshaw’s guitar is harsh and screams like a banshee unleashed. Then Walker’s deep and nuanced vocal comes in and the whole thing takes on the feeling of impending doom on a back road in rural America." Andy Snipper, Music-News

"The pace of the song, the sheer unrelenting attack is awesome in the literal sense of the word."
