Release date: September 4, 2020

These guys should be fucking huge. Seriously. How is it possible that this album is not being played constantly on hard rock/classic rock radio? This is just a damn near perfect slab of modern classic and/or southern rock. Every song on here oozes groove and verve. You can just feel the cool creeping out of your speakers and infecting you through osmosis. If an album could be a person, this album is definitely 1970s Burt Reynolds. Seriously, I found myself with a nice set of sideburns and a moustache and my chest hair thickened up after listening to this album for the first time.
