“Trucker speed on the war-path” is how Scattered Hamlet describes their musical style. Created to capture the essence of growing up in the country while giving nods to the original classic rock and outlaw country pioneers, Scattered Hamlet is one part Lynyrd Skynyrd and Molly Hatchet featuring hard rock elements from Motorhead to Down. According to Sleaze Roxx, “Scattered Hamlet’s influences range from southern rock to groove metal to doom metal with the attitude of punk rock.”With humble origins all across the US and a relentless touring schedule, the band makes no apologies for the equal love of Harley David- sons, honky tonks, Les Pauls, Marshalls, shotguns and classic American symbolism. Their debut full length album, Skeleton Dixie, was produced by two time grammy nominated Jason Donaghy who’s credits include Rob Zombie, John 5 and the Murder Dolls and mastered by legend Howie Weinberg who’s credits include: Pantera, Slayer, White Zombie and Danzig. It has special appearances by Texas Hippie Coalition’s Randy “The Arsonist” Cooper as well. The band has amassed a strong underground following called “Hell Riders” who maintain their own “chapters” (fan clubs) independent of the band.
Scattered Hamlet has made two appearances on Van’s Warped Tour, Rocklahoma 2012 (selected as one of the top 5 second stage acts), The A2 Festival (Michigan), done product demonstrations at NAMM, completed full national tours with Jason Charles Miller (Godhead) and well as independently headlining tours to most major US markets, showcased at SXSW, supported Mushroomhead, Supersuckers,Taproot, Psychostick, Hed Pe, Michale Graves (Misfits), Texas Hippie Coalition (Carved Records), Alien Ant Farm, Jackyl, Tracii Guns, Alex Skolnick (Testament) and Tenafly Viper (Members of Mushroodhead and the Autumn Offering)
