Texas Hippie Coalition Premiere New Song “Moonshine”, Reveal Details For New Album “High In The Saddle”

Texas Hippie Coalition have premiered a new song titled “Moonshine.” This track is from the band’s new album “High In The Saddle,” which will be released on May 31. Frontman Big Dad Ritch commented:

“When you hear the word moonshine, the first thing that comes to mind is usually a mason jar filled with grandpa’s creek water. This is a different kind of moonshine. Many men throughout time have referred to their woman (sweet thang) as their sweet sunshine. Me being a creature of darkness and a lord of the night, I do all my dirty deeds under the moonlight. And when I talk about my baby girl, my sweet thang, I refer to her as my moonshine…”

Mark Morton commented:

“This year, Lamb Of God will celebrate the 15th anniversary of the release of our third studio album, ‘Ashes Of The Wake.’ As I recall that moment in time, it was a pivotal point for our band. We were transitioning from the relative comfort of an underground scene that we felt confident and natural in, to a much higher profile with higher stakes and more critical eyes upon us.

It was our first release on a major label and our first to be aggressively marketed through mainstream channels. I remember feeling a mixture of pressure and confidence, along with a pervasive uncertainly as to whether our brand of bottled insanity would translate to a larger audience. Ultimately, I think our biggest strength in that situation was that we never let pressure, expectation or the potential for failure effect our creative process.

We stepped up our collective focus and concentration to rise to the occasion, but we stuck together and stayed true to our identity, artistically and otherwise. That tunnel vision approach to our creative process is part of our DNA as a band. I believe it’s a large part of what keeps us honest and motivated to this day.

For ‘Ashes Of The Wake‘ to be remembered and celebrated 15 years later is a true honor. I think I can speak for all of us when I say that it is incredibly special to know that these songs have touched people’s lives in a positive way and that they are still relevant so many years later. Thanks to all of our fans for an incredible ride so far… and cheers to the years to come!”
