Honey Island Swamp Band: Demolition Day

Honey Island Swamp Band: Demolition Day
Title: Demolition Day
Label: Ruf
Product Type: VINYL LP

Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Take a late-night stroll through downtown New Orleans and you'll hear a thousand flavors of music spill from the clubs. Spin the 2016 album by the Crescent City's new favorite sons, meanwhile, and you'll hear a band who embody that eclectic spirit. Demolition Day is the band's fourth full-length studio release and marks a milestone in their career. The album title cuts deep. It's just over a decade since Hurricane Katrina tore along the Gulf Coast, plunging New Orleans into devastation, but throwing together four Big Easy evacuees who found themselves marooned in San Francisco. Aaron Wilkinson (acoustic guitar/mandolin/vocals), Chris Mulé (electric guitar/vocals), Sam Price (bass/vocals) and Garland Paul (drums/vocals) were already on nodding terms from their hometown circuit, but when the four men joined forces for a weekly residency at San Francisco's Boom Boom Room, the chemistry was undeniable. By 2009, the lineup had released award-winning debut Wishing Well, enlisted Hammond B-3 wizard Trevor Brooks and placed one foot onto the podium of New Orleans greats. Ten years and a thousand gigs down the line, that same battle-hardened lineup took just four days to track Demolition Day at The Parlor Recording Studio in New Orleans with famed producer Luther Dickinson (also leader of the North Mississippi Allstars and ex-Black Crowes guitarist). Demolition Day is just the start. You might experience these eleven tracks for the first time on your stereo or smartphone, but as Honey Island Swamp Band tour across the States and beyond in 2016, you can expect them to take on a life of their own.
