ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The roller coaster ride that is being in a rock and roll band never ends. Hogjaw is about to take its fourth ride with its upcoming release, "IF IT AIN’T BROKE..." which will be released this summer June 18th, 2013. Expect the album to be just that - short for, "if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it", which is the philosophy members JB Jones (Guitar/vox), Elvis D (Bass), Kreg (Lead Guitar) and Kwall (Drums/Vox) have taken on. Don’t try to change who you are!!! And expect the unexpected...

Like what was said of the first record, "Like a four-wheel drive, Hogjaw have gone off-road into the music industry, and taken it head-on, brandishing their own trail of rock & roll." Well, they have remained on the same road that’s now more traveled en-route. This road can take many twists and turns, of course, but it also leads to some beautiful scenery and places that so many other artists do not understand how to arrive at because of the molding by the music industry that keeps so many on the same old trail.

Hogjaw have released three studio records since 2008: "Devil in the Details," "Ironwood" (2010), and "Sons of the Western Skies" (2012). This collection of songs is what defines the band, period. About to embark on a fourth release with (engineer/producer) Byron Filson at Villain Recording, it is strongly believed no fan will be disappointed! "IF IT AIN’T BROKE" will feature songs like; "Shiny Brass", "Am I wrong?", "Cold Dead Fingers", "One More Little One", and these are just a few of the tracks from this Southwestern band’s next offering.

The live performances, which are another big factor in how bands shape themselves, are something that Hogjaw definitely prides themselves in. They have found themselves not only touring through North America, but even abroad in Europe & Scandinavia. In 2011 Hogjaw joined forces with booking agency Teenage head Music, enabling them to perform for fans in places they never dreamt they’d visit. Now, the 3rd European tour is booked and a 2nd tour of North America is coming together!

ITunes, CDBABY, & Southern Records.DE (for vinyl) are a few places you can find Hogjaw’s music. They have had songs used in TV shows like "Army Wives" (Lifetime network),"3 Gun Nation" (versus network), and four wheeling video by "Yankee Truck Night." The band has released five videos that were filmed, edited and produced by JB Jones - one of which ("Gitsum"), spawned notoriety as an anthem for the bands Second Amendment views. There is also the possibility of a live video release later on in the year as some good footage was taken in Spain on the 2012 travels.

Far from the end of their journey, these four friends from the same high school are living their dream of writing music together, and performing what they enjoy, just how they like it. What’s next for these Arizona guys? The next plausible step is to just move forward, because "IF IT AIN’T BROKE…," don’t fix it!!

Here’s to more music, travel & fun!

Hogjaw - If It Ain't Broke... ( CD - 2013 ). Il nuovo album !
Un ritorno alla grande per gli Hogjaw, la fantastica band dell'Arizona giunta al quarto album dal curioso titolo If It Ain't Broke... ( se non è rotto... ) uscito il 18 giugno 2013.

Dopo l'ottimo debutto del 2008 con l'album Devil in the Details, l'eccellente e spettacolare Ironwood del 2011 e, almeno per quanto mi riguarda, la parziale delusione di Sons of the Western Skies del 2012, questo If It Ain't Broke... ci restituisce una band in ottima forma e con rinnovati spunti creativi regalandoci un album divertente e travolgente come nella loro migliore tradizione.

L'inizio è al fulmicotone con il contagioso rock and roll di One More Little One impreziosito da ottimi assoli, la potente e cadenzata Built My Prize, e la grintosa Am I Wrong ? con alla voce solista il batterista Kwall, che ritroviamo anche alla traccia numero 8 ( Devil's Eyes ) .

Cold Dead Fingers alla traccia numero 5 è una autentica botta di adrenalina col suo incedere in chiave hard rock, e fa da apripista alla bellissima e quasi epica The Wolf part 1, che introduce alla stessa part 2 interamente strumentale e dalla curiosa e inusuale atmosfera psichedelica.

L'album si chiude con la già citata potente e divertente Devil's Eyes, la bellissima '83, probabilmente la traccia piu puramente southern rock dell'intero album, e la chiassosa, divertente, assolutamente folle Beer Guzzlin' Merican, un autentico inno alle clamorose bevute in compagnia, pratica che alla band e a un certo tipo di american way of life, riesce dannatamente bene.

In sostanza un ottimo ritorno per gli Hogjaw, che ci riporta parzialmente sulle atmosfere dell'eccellente Ironwood ( probabilmente inarrivabile ) con un album divertente e potente, con ottimi riff, assoli e fraseggi.

Impossibile ormai definire etichette musicali per band come gli Hogjaw, l'attitudine, i riferimenti e il sound sono certamente da ricondursi al Southern Rock, ma il loro stile potente e dinamico va ben oltre questi schemi musicali.

Non fatevi ingannare dal video che posto qui sotto ( al momento l'unico estratto dal nuovo album ) che comunque rappresenta alla perfezione lo stile di vita e cazzeggio della band, l'atmosfera e il sound dell'album sono decisamente piu impegnati e meno fracassoni.

Enjoy !
