The Bohannons' Debut Album "Unaka Rising" Out Now!

The Bohannons' Debut Album "Unaka Rising" Out Now!


New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Pavement PR) The Bohannons inhabit a musical universe that, while certainly drawing influence from all over, is firmly rooted in their Tennessee home. With their full-length debut album Unaka Rising, they are clearly taking their homegrown, handcrafted rock to a new level, and we think they've set the bar pretty damn high with this one. The album's title references the Unaka province of East Tennessee and western North Carolina - "One of the finest areas in all the world," according to singer/guitarist Marty Bohannon. The region has certainly fueled the Bohannons' fire, providing endless stories and situations from which these songs draw. With a quiver of new material ready to follow up 2011's stellar EP, Days of Echo, the Bohannons spent the better part of the last year tearing up the road between Chattanooga and Athens, GA where they recorded Unaka Rising at Chase Park Transduction, first with David Barbe and later Drew Vandenberg.

The Bohannons' Unaka Rising is out now (released July 10, 2012 through This Is American Music) in CD and Digital formats. Fall/Winter tour dates to be announced soon.



As Marty Bohannon explains about the song 'Goodbye Bill,' "It's an ode to martyred labor organizer Joe Hill approaching the 100th anniversary of his death. The words are from his last will, as well as from Ethel Raim and The Pennywhistlers' song 'Joe Hill'."

UNAKA RISING TRACK LIST:
1. Goodbye Bill
2. Two Riders
3. Tim Tim
4. River Above
5. Cold Dead Hand
6. The Ballad Of Christian And Other
7. Built A World
8. The Cradle
9. Ponchatrain
10. In The End

"The Bohannons new album, Unaka Rising is a real scorcher. It's an odd thing to say about a band, but their approach to music makes so much sense that it's difficult to understand why their particular cocktail of heavy Southern rock jangle hasn't already been done to death by someone else. A little Two Gallants, a little Black Sabbath, they're as heavy as they are twangy. They manage their heaviness without venturing into melodrama, which is difficult for many artists that venture into darker territory. Their music begs to serve as a soundtrack to a genre of film that doesn't currently exist—some kind of violent, stylized-but-gritty (a la Tarantino) Southern road movie patterned after the classic Western model." - OXFORD AMERICAN

"Are they Country? Are They Blues? Are they '70s glam metal? Yes." - Bryan Childs / NINE BULLETS
