The foot-stomping hellfire roots of Reverend Horton Heat’s rock ‘n’ roll stylings are louder than ever with “Whole New Life,” the brand new album available worldwide today. The band also delivers the second video in the form of the sexy and sultry ‘Hog Tyin’ Woman.’ As the album hits shelves, the Texas rebels have traveled thousands of miles, playing 13 countries in front of over one million people since the release of 2014’s Rev. Watch the band perform ‘Hog Tyin’ Woman’ on the NBC thriller Midnight, Texas on December 7.

“It’s the most positive album I’ve ever done, admits ringleader Jim ‘Reverend’ Heath. “Some of my stuff in the past was dark, maybe too dark. I guess I’m not the awful vindictive jerk I thought I was!”

Recording the album in their hometown of Dallas, Heath says that “Creating Whole New Life brought out something more positive in my storytelling and guitar playing. I also saw a vocal coach to reach notes unheard to the average fan. It’s got some Southern feel to it, a bit of gruff and a crooning style to it. Write what you know, that’s what they tell ya in school, right?” Continue reading »

On December 7, fans of the NBC thriller Midnight, Texas can tune in to see Reverend Horton Heat perform ‘Hog Tyin’ Woman’ on the hit show.

“I love her so much she’s got a rope around me,” admits crooner Jim ‘Reverend’ Heath. That wryly fits the theme of Reverend Horton Heat’s twangy chord strumming and doo-wop drumming of ‘Hog Tyin’ Woman.’ Heath bucks up and confronts his love of the road and the love of his woman, adding “Even though this tune is a crazy little romp seemingly about bondage, it’s really just an ‘I’m true to you’ love song. It has that fun, yet psychotic vocal uttering, and a bluesy yet desperate guitar.” Continue reading »
