With over 1 million albums sold, REVEREND HORTON HEAT come roaring back with their 12th masterpiece Whole New Life, streaming now at Billboard. The zesty, infectious eleven track release will be available worldwide this Friday, November 30 and is the follow-up to 2014’s REV.
Jim ‘Rev’ Heath has been at the helm of rockabilly royalty since 1985, along with longtime bass master and confidant Jimbo Wallace. After rocking as a trio for nearly 30 years, Whole New Life marks a whole new era for the band, now a quartet with Matt Jordan on organ and piano, and new drummer Arjuna ‘RJ’ Contreras, adding new flair to an already legendary outfit.
Heath adds, “I love playing with these guys, it truly is a whole new band, so the title fits perfectly. It is appropriate for what Jimbo, RJ, Matt and I are going through. We’re really enjoying our career right now and it’s all a little new for each of us.”
The Texas titans officially kicked off the Horton’s Holiday Hayride Tour on November 27 in Omaha, NE and will wrap up the year in Birmingham, AL on December 22. As more riotous shows are booked for 2019, Heath cracks, “I’m afraid I’m on the Willie Nelson retirement program, which means I’ll never retire!”
