New Studio Album for Reverend Horton Heat

Published: 2004-05-14
In an age where most bands are more concerned with how they look, the rockabilly band Reverend Horton Heat feels that getting out and playing live music is more important. On April 5 the band finished up a tour. One month later on May 8 they began another tour. With so much time on the road you'd think band members would want to stay at home, kick back, and just relax a bit; not Reverend Horton Heat, the band recorded a new album. "Revival" – number eight – is an album of stripped down rock'n'roll. Reverend Horton Heat frontman Jim Heath says that the album is a pure honest document of musicians playing heartfelt rock and roll. And when the band says stripped down they mean it in every sense of the word. The album is a no frills affair. The band even left in a few mistakes because they were authentic. "With rock'n'roll no frills is a good thing," said Heath. "Revival" will hit stores June 29.

Reverend Horton Heat are bringing their rock'n'roll revival to Canada for a few shows.
