Stream Two Brand New Quaker City Night Hawks Tracks.
As I type this, the fellas in the Sons of Anarchy-approved Quaker City Night Hawks are likely huddled around a computer somewhere, cursing out iTunes for taking its sweet ass time in uploading its new material to the Internet.
Of that much, I'm almost certain.
Because, for whatever reason, the band, while frustratingly awaiting its new material getting all set to go up for sale on that online retailer, passed those same cuts our way, too.
And, hell yeah, we're glad that they did: These two new songs — one called “Tell It Like It Is” and another called “Prize to Find” — are being packaged together by the band as a short, teaser release of sorts called Texas Heavy; and, very much so, they live up to their own lofty billing.
They're raw, loud and brimming with the towering swagger and impressive harmonies we've come to expect from this standout group. And yes: They're yet another step closer to the band appropriately catching its unbelievable live show energy on tape, too. Here's the other thing: They also just might also be the best cuts the band's recorded yet.
Lucky us, then, that the group's given us the OK to post these new songs for your streaming pleasure, iTunes be damned. Check 'em out.
These songs, the band tells us, are just the start of a little something new from the group, too. More releases like these — excess recordings from the group's recording sessions for its sophomore Honcho LP — are on the way as additional teasers from the band as it prepares to release its next, almost finished and already-recorded third LP.
In addition to digital iTunes releases, this short Texas Heavy batch, as well as future ones, will be available for purchase on vinyl right here, as well as at the band's live shows.
As for that next full-length? Well, the band has this much to say: “It'll feel a lot more like Texas Heavy than Honcho.”
Well, alright then. All the more reason to be stoked on this new two-fer.
