It’s that time, folks.
What time? That time when we once again discover something awesome together.
Them County Bastardz keep it simple! They are local dudes from Essex County who are in it to make old school metal with back forty rock and having fun while doing it!
Formed in 2013 and based in Leamington, ON (an hour south of Windsor/ Detroit area) these Canadian rednecks are headbanging heavy riffs with heavy lyrics to give insight to their county life style.
Their new album ‘Sick Daze’ due out February 24, 2015 via Smokehouse Records tells the story of life in the county, with tracks such as their fan favorite ‘Drive By’ to heavy hitters such as ‘The Bastard’ to ‘Rise Up’. Inspired by true stories and experiences, their seven track debut is about county living so crack open a beer, get ready to rock out and have a good time!
For a taste of what’s to come, the band is offering an exlcusive stream of the single ‘The Bastard‘ below:
The band features Andrew Watson on vocals, Mike Rennie on rhythm guitar, Tyler Wickham on bass, Jim Kay on drums and Brien Alexander on lead guitar
What the local press is saying about Them County Bastardz:
“Country goes metal – One of the more inventive musical acts to hit the local circuit in recent years is Them County Bastardz “T.C.B”, based in Leamington.This screamo quintet combines beer-swilling, redneck swagger with Pantera-like intensity.”- Windsor Star
Fact about album title = Sick Daze is when you take a Monday off work because you are still feeling the weekend fun.
