Them County Bastardz keep it simple – composed of local dudes from Essex County (an hour south of Windsor/ Detroit area) who are in it to make old school metal with back forty rock and having fun while doing it.
With upcoming debut album “Sick Daze” due out February 24th, 2015 via Smokehouse Records, the Canadian rednecks have teamed up with Bravewords.com for the premiere of the track “Drive By.” Give it a listen over here.
Vocalist Andrew Watson comments: “I am super stoked about this album coming out. It’s been a lot of work. I feel ‘Drive By’ is a good introduction to who we are. The song has stuck with the band for a long time, through our ups and downs. ‘Drive By’ was written about a time we were cruising around in the county on a suspended license, seeing a cop and hoping he just drives by. Cheers!”
Produced by Chris Towle and TBC plus mastered by Chuck Carvaalho, “Sick Daze” features seven tracks inspired by true stories and experiences of the band living life in the county, so crack open a beer, get ready to rock out and have a good time. The track listing is:
1. Drive By (4:48)
