Arizona southern-rock outfit HOGJAW pride themselves on their exciting live performances. So if you like the Capricorn Records bands of the 1970s and you lurve Southern Rock, Classic Rock, Bluegrass, metal, old country, rockabilly and even hill-billy porch — you’ll need to mosey on down to a venue near yo’ shack — to catch their debut headline UK TOUR OCTOBER 2018 in support of the new studio album, ‘WAY DOWN YONDER’ out via snakefarm records.
“To all of our UK folks, Hogjaw is ready to release the rock ‘n’ roll across the island!” says vocalist/guitarist JB Jones, “We’ve been waiting for this opportunity for some time, and can’t wait to see all of our friends and fans. Ready the whiskey, ready the pints. We’ll see ya’ll soon!”
Hogjaw are four longstanding friends (“Four fingers folded into a fist” — as they describe their close kinship ) with JB Jones (vocals and guitar), Jimmy Rose (lead guitar), Elvis DD (bass) & Kwall (drums).
‘Way Down Yonder’ is their sixth studio album and sees the boys delivering 11 tracks of “hard hitting Southern-fried electric guitar rock” pulling no punches and leaving not one goddam shot on the bar. One of the main aspects of southern rock is that the music is based on heritage and lifestyle — with real stories told and common values dominating. The Hogjaw ‘family’ uphold the best traditions of this genre.
