Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster To Release IV In September


Birmingham, Alabama-hailing heavy rockers Maylene and the Sons of Disaster will release their long-awaited new album, Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster: IV, on September 27 through Ferret Music.

That is the artwork, which is pretty damn cool.

According to a press release, the band continues its focused conceptual and lyrical bent on the new record, which plots Maylene as renegade outlaw from a 1920s gangster/prohibition era real-life crime family. “The record’s gritty musical shootouts are filled with intricate guitar riffing and whiskey drenched grooves, while the lyrics take your imagination back to a time when the exploits of gangs of criminals gripped the American people and press,” says the press release.

I have heard this record, and I can attest: Shit’s awesome. It is fucking awesome. I’m a big fan. It’s like Pantera meets Motley Crue, only better than that.

Maylene and the Sons of Disaster has just embarked on a 30 city U.S. tour that will run through September 3. Fresh from tours with both Clutch and Protest the Hero, the pre-release run will bring the band’s hard-hitting live show to both new fans and loyal followers each evening.
