Randy Rogers Band to visit IP Casino on 24 May

6 May 2019

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Randy Rogers Band released the band's eighth studio album, Hellbent, last Friday, 26 April, and the timing couldn't be better.

Produced by Grammy-winner Dave Cobb and recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio A, Hellbent shines new light on the camaraderie, chemistry and Texas-sized country hooks that have made Randy Rogers Band a must-see live act for nearly two decades. The guys will celebrate their 20th anniversary in October 2020, and it's that kind of family-like familiarity — sharpened by thousands of shows in dancehalls, honky tonks, theaters and beyond — that makes Hellbent so appealing. This isn't just a band. It's a group of road warriors and honorary brothers. A tightly knit group whose popularity has been built show by show, mile by mile, song by song. Hellbent celebrates that drive and determination, while also pointing the band toward another decade of acclaimed, homegrown country music.

A "perpetual live favorite" (Rolling Stone) playing "country music based in the genre’s rich outlaw tradition" (New York Times), Randy Rogers Band recorded Hellbent during a typically busy period that found the group playing sold-out shows from coast to coast. In 2018 alone, they performed to more than 60,000 fans outside of their native Texas. Their unique popularity isn't limited to the stage, either. The guys racked up 97 million plays on Pandora last year, all while maintaining their independence as a band.

"The guys were amazing to work with. They came in ready and open to ideas. They’ve been together a while so we found a groove and made what I think is a great record that captures who they are," says Dave Cobb.

Packed with original material, Hellbent has already been lauded by publications like Rolling Stone, Garden & Gun, and Billboard. On "Hell Bent on a Heartache," Rogers and company put their unique stamp on a song co-written by Guy Clark, Morgane Stapleton, and Chris Stapleton. Meanwhile, they nod to their roots with the nostalgic "Comal County Line," a crowd favorite that's been praised by Garden & Gun as "a love letter to the Texas community that birthed them."

Never content to stay at home for very long (and much of the reason for titling this album Hellbent), Randy Rogers Band will tour heavily again this year in support of the new 11-track album.

The group will also celebrate Hellbent's release by visiting four locally owned record stores in their home state — Chief Records in Fort Worth, Waterloo Records in Austin (signing only), Good Records in Dallas, and Cactus Records in Houston — during the album's first weekend of availability, giving intimate acoustic performances and signing albums in each location.
