The Tug Fork River Band / Press

“I came across these guys a few years ago when a copy of their release Catch For Us the Metal came across my desk. I was immediately intrigued by their unique blending of metalcore and southern rock and over the years have revisited that album on more than one occasion. When I received their latest disc, Vulture, I popped it in, kicked back and began listening, expecting more of the same. After the first few notes I had to stop and see if this was indeed the same band; I was literally blown away. This is so much heavier, aggressive and more cohesive than their previous work.”

“Do you like southern rock, and heavy metal? If so, The Tug Fork River Band from Indianapolis, Indiana is for you. It's been three years since the band released their last album Catch for Us, the Metal on Wounded Records. Now, the boys are back with the Vulture EP and they've decided to go the independent route this time around.”

“I must start this review by saying that I am not typically a fan of ANY kind of southern-style genre of rock. From Lynrd Skynrd to Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, I just find the southern spice on any rock-oriented genre to be obnoxious or just plain bad sounding. With that being said, I’m happy to say that The Tug Fork River Band has managed to open up some room in my heart to hear out any future southern metalcore acts with their self-released Vulture EP.”

“The Tug Fork River Band relentlessly rolls on!!! It’s been a few years since Catch For Us The Metal was launched by the folks at Wounded Records. Presenting a swampy brand of Southern style metal, The Tug Fork River Band now return with a mighty vengeance, unleashing their latest EP Vultures on their own. Here is a recent interview we conducted with the Tug Fork membership to find out more about the new songs, current happenings of the band, giant banana stories from Cornerstone, and other wondrous topics.”

“We are continuing with the series of interviews. I consider myself to be very lucky, not only do I get to play some of the best Indie music out there but I also get to interview some extremely talented artists as well. Wounded Records has been a long time supported of JTICMP, going all the way back to Episode#10. Today we are sitting down and getting to know one of Wounded Records newest bands. With an incredible sound and great message The Tug Fork River Band is clearly a group of artist to keep your eyes on, and with a CD set to come out in the upcoming year be sure to keep your eyes peeled for this band at the summer festivals. So let us get to it and find out what makes this talented group tick.”

“If you like Maylene and The Sons Of Disaster crossed with the dirty down home sounds of Molly Hatchet, you will love the sheer heaviness of The Tug Fork River Band. Hailing from the Indianapolis area, these guys bring the rock to the swamp, and Catch For Us The Metal is sure to get you headbanging and wishing you too were in the dirty South.”

“Catch For Us Some Metal is the debut release for Wounded Records recording artist The Tug Fork River Band. These guys have an interesting band name with even more out of the ordinary song titles such as “Bad Intentions For A Billy Goat” and “Duct Tape Fixes Errthing.” I was a bit leery when I popped it in my player. Don’t let any of the titling fool you though. What awaits the listener is a straight forward no holds barred Metal Record with a southern fried flair that is really a good listen. The Tug Fork River Band really bring a lot to the table on their first disc by mixing things up and keeping each and every track fresh and inventive”
