August 19, 2014, a year ago
Texas has been known for many things through the years and Texas Hippie Coalition is just the next commodity from the great Lone Star State. The band of outlaws return with their unique blend of red dirt metal with Ride On. The album is set to drop on October 7th via Carved Records/Caroline Distribution. From the guttural laugh on album opener “El Diablo Rojo” to the chugging outro of closer “I Am The End”, it is clear Texas Hippie Coalition are back with a vengeance. The band is comprised of one of hard rock’s most engaging frontmen Big Dad Ritch on vocals, Cord Pool on guitars, John Exall on bass guitar and Timmy Braun on drums. Ride On proves Texas Hippie Coalition is taking it to the next level and looking to recruit new outlaws to join them on their musical adventure.
“It’s like Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ Top had a child, and Pantera ended up raising it,” exclaims Big Dad Ritch. “We’re red dirt metal. That’s a flag we wave high. There wasn’t a line formed for us, so I created a line and jumped to the front of that bad boy. Ride On is the best example of what we do.”
The first single released from Ride On is the southern rocker “Monster In Me”. The band has released a lyric video for the song to give fans a small taste of what the new album sounds like. Ride On was produced by Grammy Award winning producer Skidd Mills, known for his work with Sick Puppies, Saving Abel, Devour The Day and Saliva.
