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.
