An instant fan-favorite at every festival they have played, the band’s rapidly growing fan base has been patiently awaiting new music since III, and while I have no clue on a timetable for new 49 Winchester tunes, I would have to think new music is on the way soon.
I saw 49 Winchester play a few months back, and they played an unreleased song called “Damn Darlin’” that blew the crowd away. While they still haven’t released it, or any new music for that matter, I recently stumbled over a live version filmed during the FloydFest Bus Stop Recording Sessions on YouTube.
49 Winchester was voted FloydFest’s “On the Rise” artist of 2021, a no-brainer with music like this.
In typical 49 Winchester, “Damn’ Darlin’” is a soulful, honky-tonkin’ heartbreak song with deft lyricism that fits frontman Isaac Gibson’s vocals perfectly. Hopefully this will hold everyone over until they release more music this year.
Personally, I can’t wait until this one is released… if it is any preview of what is to come from 49 Winchester, we are in for something special.
