“We set out to make a blue-collar record for people who work their asses off and, come Friday and Saturday, just want to let loose and party,” says MSB’s Tex. “That was the theme of the album from Day One.”
“We challenged ourselves to explore new ways of writing and performing on this album,” said Bird, MSB’s other half. “It was an eye-opening experience for me and Tex writing with some of Nashville’s edgiest hitmakers.”
With its crunchy guitar riffs and southern rock swagger, “Blacked Out” is powered by the slamming, summer anthem, “Lady Luck” f/Crucifix, and wraps with “Out Back,” a party anthem like none other featuring Durwood Black of Burn County, Redneck Souljers, D. Thrash of Jawga Boyz, Demun Jones, Bubba Sparxxx, Lenny Cooper, Jeff McCool of Moccasin Creek and The LACS. Released on BackRoad Records and produced by Durwood Black and Ty Weathers, Tex and Bird were energized by their first-ever collaborations with Nashville songwriters on the new album including Ira Dean (formerly of Trick Pony).
Supporting the new album, Moonshine Bandits kick off the second leg of their “Rebels on the Run” headlining tour May 1st with Redneck Souljers and Crucifix as direct support.
