The Rogues' 10th Album is in the Works!

A few weeks ago The Rogues went into the recording studio to begin work on their 10th album called Hellbound Sleigh.  Yes, that's right, it's a Christmas album.  We've talked about it for years and it's soon to be a reality.  Traditional Christmas favorites arranged and performed by The Rogues and a few other rockin' tunes.

The name of the album is drawn from one of those tunes called The Hell Bound Train.  The release date is planned to be early September.  The album was begun in Houston and will be finished up in Maryland.  With contributions from Randy Wothke, Lars Sloan, Bryan Blaylock, Doug Frobese, EJ Jones, Ewan Brown, and new member Kyle Grasty, it's gonna be awesome.

Here's a little snippet of one of the tunes - Greensleeves - with accompaniment arranged and played by Randy Wothke and Doug Frobese.  No mixing has been done yet so this is just a raw track.

The Band will be kicking off it's Kickstarter campaign for the album in the next few days where you can pre-order the album or donate more for excellent  rewards.  Keep watching the website for the news.  Slaint√©!
