Bootyard Bandits are back to get you through the hardship of isolation and quarantine! To celebrate the release of their brand new EP The Very Best Of Bootyard Bandits, which is out today, the band just launched an exclusive track Lockdown, available only on social media.
Drummer Bamm Bamm comments: “Well… I think we can all agree – Lockdown is rubbish and drinking is awesome. So we figured, in the absence of any live shows, why not write a song about both of those things!? We haven’t gone our usual route of taking our material to qualified professionals to make us sound good, coz we can’t. So, instead, we threw this little ditty together ourselves from the confines of our own homes. No swanky mixing, mastering or pro film crew. Just five idiotic cowboys and a couple of cats. We might record it properly one day. But in the mean time – watch, listen, enjoy and share with all your friends!”
In addition the band will do a series of fun virtual performances throughout the “lockdown” weeks. Full dates in the poster below. You can tune in via their social media channels.
Hailing from Worcester the country rock five-piece gained attention amongst the media with their hilariously gruesome Lego stop-motion video for the single Hoedown Showdown. The band already has great live experience under their belt having toured Europe with a 20-date tour supporting pirate metallers Alestorm and ambushed the UK as special guest to Massive Wagons. Their energetic live shows are fast gaining a unique reputation amongst the fans, with their Wild West elements in full display on stage and their characteristic soundscape blasted at full volume.
Stay tuned for further announcements… there is more coming your way.
