They’re gearing up to drop their sixth studio album, Tornillo, this summer, easily catapulting them to the top of my most anticipated albums of 2022 list.
Their second self-produced album draws inspiration from all across the musical spectrum, citing influences that include Nirvana, Waylon Jennings and the Gospel stylings of the McCrary Sisters.
They previously released the lead single, “John Wayne”, and today, we’re getting another taste of the upcoming record with a rockin’ solo write by frontman Cody Cannon, titled “Antioch”.
Cody tells the story of a young man who joins the military after growing up in an abusive home, often getting in trouble with the law as a kid. Eventually, he kills his own father and goes to jail for it, but winds up getting out, and now… mama don’t cry that daddy’s gone.
There’s just somethin’ special about a solo write from Cody:
“I hate him so much even though I bear his name, I can’t take him right now but one day that’s gonna change, When I get grown, ’Cause Mama don’t cry when Daddy’s gone”
