Hackensaw Boys release brandnew single, tour Europe starting THIS week20-04-2015
By the end of this week Hackensaw Boys have started to hit the European roads again - find a list of tourdates below. In support of their tour, the independent Dutch recordlabel Milkcow Records will release a brand new 7" vinyl single with two EXCLUSIVE tracks.
Both songs are unique to this release. "Wolves Howling" is a bluesy hillbilly folk stomper sung by fiddler Ferd Moyse IV, while on side B David Sickmen's "The Hangman" strikes a more sensitive chord. The tracks were recorded and mixed in Amsterdam by Thomas Olivier. The single will be available from the merch booth at the upcoming shows, so come out and see 'em play live and go home after to give your record player a special treat!
This Friday the tour will start with a special performance in Kinderdijk. This is the place Hackensaw Boys recorded the live album "For The Love Of A Friend" after the band got invited in memory of a young miller's passing. New friendships were born and that's now they're back!
After this first show, the tour will take them across the Benelux and Germany with nothing but highlights. To mention a couple: Sharing the stage with Wovenhand, Mudhoney, Daddy Long Legs and many others in Lessines at Roots & Roses; a long time wish to travel to Vlieland for Here Comes The Summer - Into The Great Wide Open's spring sister; obviously the Sedate's presented Down By The River (amongst J.P. Harris & The Touch Choices and Ryley Walker); etc. etc.
Like the name dictates, Hackensaw Boys are all about finger picking banjos, fiddles run through the punk rock blue grass ringer. They are as likely to hit home with hippies as rockabillies, or anyone who wants to raise a glass and stomp a hole through the ole wooden dance floor.
