Tommy Rebel and the Righteous rock the house with the new track “Back Roads,” which they premiere here at California Rocker.
The Austin-based trio is comprised of lead vocalist and guitarist Tommy Rebel, bassist Naer Lin and drummer Rollie White, who all believe in making only the best quality, “true rock and roll.”
The track “Back Roads” takes the listener on an upbeat ride and trip back home, and it’s a semi-nostalgic but straight-ahead rock tune.
“Back Roads” is a lead single off the Tommy Rebel and the Righteous album, Renaissance Dude, which will be released March 6, 2020.
“Renaissance Dude is the culmination of my musical family maturing and becoming one in message and song,” Rebel said. “I write a song. Rollie and Naer adopt it and make it better. It’s exciting that everyone involved has poured their heart and soul into the jams. I am one grateful dude, awed by everyone’s level of friendship and commitment.”
“I fell in love with the group upon hearing them the first time,” said the album’s producer Chris “Frenchie” Smith. “They clearly have classic rock leanings, however, the spark in their music is derived from their ability to unleash freshness globally. The narrative of every lyric is so potent that you catch yourself thinking, ‘I’d say that if I were more honest with myself.’”
