The genre-bending band, Texas rockers, celebrate their first Top 20 at Active Rock Radio this week with independent release “Gasoline.”
Celebrated by Sounds Like Nashville as “gospel-inflected country metal… full of explosive attitude and featuring a mean streak a mile wide,” the track is featured on Whiskey Myers’ self-titled and self-produced September 2019 album. Released independently on the band’s own Wiggy Thump Records in partnership with 888 and Thirty Tigers, WHISKEY MYERS earned a No. 1 debut spot on both the Country and Americana/Folk charts, also landing as the No. 2 Rock album, No. 6 on the all-genre Billboard 200 and No. 4 among new releases.
“Self-producing was especially fun on this song,” shares lead singer Cody Cannon, who penned the track. “We got to really push the limits to find a sound that matches the song’s message of working hard even when things don’t go your way and not letting anyone or anything bring you down. Hopefully, people can relate to that and really feel something when they hear it.”
The road-tested band – whose 2019 touring schedule featured 130 shows (including a 15-date/8-country European run), an at-capacity Stagecoach Festival set and a massive stadium show with The Rolling Stones – also kick-off 2020 with 100% sell-outs at all headlining shows thus far.
