It’s an incredible accomplishment when a rock band has been successful enough to reach the 25-year mark since the release of their first album. And this year, rowdy southern rockers Jackyl have accomplished this feat, and are celebrating with an appropriately-titled compilation, ’25,’ which drops July 28 via Mighty Loud Records.

The 18-track set (which can be preordered via the band’s official site, jackyl.com) features such Jackyl radio hits as “Down on Me,” “The Lumberjack,” “Push Comes to Shove,” and “Favorite Sin,” as well as two previously unreleased tracks - a live rendition of “Redneck Punk,” as well as a cover of Black Oak Arkansas’ “Hot and Nasty.”

“At the time we first hit the scene, we were told by quite a few interviewers and fans that we sounded like a cross between Black Oak Arkansas and AC/DC,” explains Jackyl. “While we was very familiar with AC/DC, we were not with BOA. We went back and listened, and were blown away - so much so, that we recorded a cover of one of their most kick ass tunes, ‘Hot and Nasty,’ which is now finally getting its release on this comp.”

First bursting upon the scene with their self-titled, platinum-certified debut album in 1992, Jackyl has made a name for themselves as a killer live band that delivers night after night, and has continued to offer up good old fashioned blues boogie over the years, as evidenced on such subsequent albums as 1994’s gold-certified ‘Push Comes to Shove,’ all the way to their most recent release, 2016’s ‘ROWYCO.’

“Its not about coming to see a Jackyl show, its about coming to be a part of it,” Says Jesse Dupree. “Every show becomes a family reunion.”
Dead Presleys
Dead Presleys
Dead Presleys are a rock n’ roll band both in music and spirit. Often times, “rock n’ roll” is a cop out for artists that don’t want to pigeonhole themselves in a genre, but Dead Presleys believe they are rock n’ roll through and through. They believe in big drums, ripping guitar solos, soulful vocals and driving bass. They believe slower songs can be rock n’ roll too. It’s all part of the musical and emotional rollercoaster you take the audience.

The music comes first. Always. “Our motto is simple,” says vocalist/guitarist Kerry Sherman, “serve the song. Whatever it takes to make the song great, whether that’s going simpler or more complex with arrangements. Whatever it takes. If you take care of the music first, the rest comes easy.” While they take the music seriously, they try to be loose with everything else. After all, it’s rock n’ roll.

With a style that’s been called “The Black Keys meets Kings of Leon meets Foo Fighters”, Dead Presleys are a versatile and energetic group of musicians that continue to grow and push boundaries.

Since releasing their debut album ‘Muses’ in 2017, Sherman, drummer Colton Gabel, lead guitarist Tyler Cook and bassist Zachary Reiter continue to play bigger shows on bigger stages, including opening for 90’s Alternative rock icons Gin Blossoms, The Runaway’s Lita Ford, a spot on 2018’s Magic City Blues Fest, headlining Butte, Montana’s Famous St. Patrick’s Day Parade, several headlining shows at Billings’ Pub Station Taproom and Concert Hall and slots on the main stage of Evel Knievel Days, Original Festival and Wild West Music Fest.

After taking a few months to catch their breath and enjoy a couple beers during Fall 2018, the boys are coming back to the Pub Station stage for their 3rd Annual Holiday Show in December. Ready to rock and roll.
