Strap yourself in and hang on The Road Hammers are back with Wheels (Open Road Recordings), a record that will resonate deeply with anyone who ever up and shook the dust off their boots and hit the road just for the hell of it.
Scheduled for release on June 3rd, Wheels is a tight set of raw and uncompromising tunes that telegraphs the unique sense of freedom found by getting behind the wheel of something, anything, and getting the hell out of Dodge. Nowhere is that more evident than on Wheels second single ‘Mud,’ a track dedicated to people who love getting dirty at high speed on motorbikes, trucks, hot rods or whatever they can fire up and head out on.

THE TOUR SO FAR.....
Well, we've been on the road for about a week so far and we are having a blast! The weather is good and tonight is the last night in ontario for a while. Its great to see the fans come out to say hello. Touring our home and native land is such a privilige and a joy. We've each been crossing the country for years in one form or another and I never get tired of it. Driving across the Canadian Sheild is jaw dropping(but not in winter!). This country is so beautiful. Headed out west next and hope to see all the hammerheads in the west come to the shows. Thanks again to all for the support!!!!
So I'm on a plane the other day and the guy sitting next to me asked me what I was listening to on my mp3 player. I told him a guy named Jon Brion. Brion is a well known producer in the pop world and his solo stuff is an earful. So the guy next to me starts talking about this band he's listening to called Elbow. I hadn't heard of them but as of now I'm a huge fan. I picked up one of their cds and love it. Point is, I love talking to people who love music as much as I do. The diversity of music out there floating around is as diverse as the people who listen to it. I thanked my new friend when I got off the plane. He got me listening to a new artist and hopefully I got him listening to the new Hammers record! See you on tour 'yall. Chris

You know, I couldn't sleep, so I cranked on the tube. There is nothing but negative news about the world. I know times are hard, and things are tight all around, but I just want to remind us all (me in particular, because I get down on all of this negative news myself) that every day God gives us is the true blessing. ANYTHING we get beyond that is just gravy. I know it's just a bunch of words, but I mean it, it’s pretty dang good to be alive when you think about it. So, I'm still sleepless, but I'm going to switch over to WALKER TEXAS RANGER. If WALKER was in charge of the economy and the world, he would know what to do, he always does. I hope I can be Walker when I grow up. Man that would be a lot of gravy! Jason McCoy
Our new Canadian album "The Road Hammers II" is now available! Get your copy today! Available on itunes, MapleMusic.com, and everywhere great music is sold!!!!
