[UPDATE: the target was hit within 12 hours, which is fantastic news. But keep funding! The more the band get, the more they can spend on cool merch, touring, and advertising to get the word out about this new release.]
Bourbon Crow is probably my favourite of Wednesday 13’s side projects. It’s great, simple country music with a wonderfully dark twist and a sense of humour. So when the news came through that there was indeed to be a third album I was over the moon.
Press release follows…
After some years in a proverbial ditch, outlaw country maniacs, Bourbon Crow, featuring Wednesday 13 and Rayen Belchere (country rock artist Early Ray) have launched a Kickstarter campaign for their third studio album, Off The Wagon & On The Rocks.
You can view the campaign video clip and join in the fun here or scroll down the page for the video.
The band’s 2006 debut, Highway To Hangovers piqued many Wednesday 13 fans’ interest in the outlaw country sound, coupled with Bourbon Crow’s irreverent lyrics and stripped back acoustics. The band followed Highway… in ’09 with Long Way To The Bottom, but since then the project has lain dormant until Rayen and Wednesday were able to buy their way out of their record deal. Now that has happened, they’re looking for some help to move forward.
Here’s what the boys had to say about the project:
Heyahhh, Mules!! You wanted it, you asked for it and now you got it!! Bourbon Crow is BACK!!! Back and working on the new CD, Off The Wagon & On The Rocks. After buying ourselves out of our old record deal and taking control of our old record masters, we can finally do Bourbon Crow as we want, when we want & how we want!
After this though, we need your support to make this new release a reality! We understand this might not be for everyone, but those who can pledge and support, please know that you are directly impacting the future of Bourbon Crow. If we raise more than our goal, we will be using that money to promote the new record and possibly tour, depending on how much we raise. There is no label, agent or bank fronting the money and telling us what to do. It’s just US and YOU!
Please spread the word, as we can only do this with your help. Keep checking back for updates and information and sneak peeks behind the scenes. #supportbourboncrow. A big Ric Flair “WOOOOO” from the bottom of our Whisky soaked hearts!
