Green Corn Revival, the 'dark horse' of Country music, is set to release “Bound for Glory” on November 5, 2013. The 11 song album takes listeners on a captivating journey of perseverance, forgiveness and promise—in classic Cowpunk fashion. The band’s second full-length release is heavily inspired by images of Post-war Reconstruction and Westward
In small Oklahoma farm towns, these Dust Bowl descendants were raised in church pews through oil booms and busts. The scope of never-ending red dirt roads has had a huge impact on the group’s desire to express their Okie roots with pride. With country and punk influences, Green Corn Revival provides both a musical tribute and counterpoint to western culture.
Jared Deck (songwriter, lead singer) and his wife, Jacy (keyboards, vocals), are the core of the band. Cora Gutel (vocals), Brandon Cink (lead guitar, bass on the album), Drew Simmons (drums), and a revolving cast of
players collaborate to create a sound they call a subversively dark amalgam of cinematic retro-rock, gospel-like harmonies, pure punk beats, and heartland angst.
Green Corn Revival has been influenced by iconic artists like Roy Orbison, The Clash and The Beatles, which shows in this vocally driven and diverse collection of songwriting. They have played multiple festivals, such as SXSW Official, NX35, Norman Music Fest, Tulsa Mayfest, and Access Film Music Fest at Sundance. Also, they have shared the stage with national acts such as Gordon Gano, Heartless Bastards, Ha Ha Tonka, Hot Club of Cowtown, Red Dirt Rangers, The Low Lows, Cotton Jones, and with the legendary Wanda Jackson as her backing band. There’s no doubt
that fans of current favorites Blitzen Trapper, Deer Tick, and Calexico will appreciate this album.
“Bound for Glory” was engineered by Chris Harris of Hook Echo Sound (Flaming Lips, Skating Polly, Chainsaw Kittens) and features Daniel Foulks (fiddle player for Samantha Crain) on violin, and Kevin Webb (former guitarist for Stoney LaRue and Burtschi Brothers) on pedal steel.
