TEXAS HIPPIE COALITION RELEASES MOONSHINE MUSIC VIDEO VIA REVOLVER MAGAZINE
PRE-ORDERS AVAILABLE NOW
Toronto, ON – May 30, 2019 – Texas Hippie Coalition has released a new music video today for their current single, Moonshine, exclusively via Revolver Magazine. Directed by veteran director, Justin Reich (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, EVERY TIME I DIE), this is the first music video we’ve seen from the group from their latest LP, High In The Saddle , due out tomorrow.
“I’ve always wanted to make a Quentin Tarantino type video, flashing forward & back,” says frontman, Big Dad Ritch. "Grainy and sexy like an old B movie. Grindhouse style. That’s the direction we took with the video.”
As heard on SiriusXM's Octane, Test Drive, Moonshine was the third most added at the BDS Mainstream Rock Indicator Chart last week. Moonshine oozes everything THC stands for and smells like. A true THC manifesto, if ever there was one: swampy grooves, Crüe type partying, and a Man in Black style saga.
Big Dad Ritch adds, “Some men refer to their lady as the light of their life, their sweet sunshine. Me being a man of the darkness, a lord of the night, I do all my dirty deeds under the moonlight. I call my sweet thang, my MOONSHINE.”
Texas Hippie Coalition is out on the road right now on the aptly named, “Haulin’ Moonshine Tour,” with roughly two weeks to go. Tickets are on sale now.
THC will release High In The Saddle, tomorrow, May 31, 2019, via Entertainment One (eOne). High in the Saddle is a record full of unashamed, full-throttle ass kicking. It’s the band’s second pairing with producer, Bob Marlette (Black Stone Cherry, Rob Zombie), and sixth album overall, on the heels of their #2 Billboard Heatseekers slab, Dark Side of Black. Pre-orders are available now.
Backyard barbeques, barroom brawls, tent revivals, and big rock festivals alike are suitable environments for the Red Dirt Metal of THC, a band with a sound so devilishly electrifying that they had to come up with a new genre to describe it.
BIG DAD RITCH captains this pirate ship of bikers, outlaws, troubadours, and hell-raisers, welcoming all comers to the THC party with gregarious charisma and Southern charm. Across a half dozen albums, countless club gigs, and show-stealing performances at Rockstar Mayhem, THC has spread the good word of big riffs, big hooks, and wild times.
Ritch puts the band’s evolution in Old West terms. “In the beginning, you’re an outlaw looking for direction. You gotta get the best guys for the job behind you,” he explains. “Now we know how to rob banks, how to rob stagecoaches, and how to rob trains.”
“I’m just out to have fun, man,” Ritch says with genuine modesty. “I never look at this as something I have to do. It’s something I /get/ to do. I just thank the Lord above that He has given me this talent that has allowed me to garner these wonderful things in life.”
Texas Hippie Coalition continues to ride or die for truth-telling, unashamed, Red Dirt Metal badassery, winning over new acolytes every damn day. As Blabbermouth once asked: “How many more reasons do you need to try a little THC? Everybody’s doing it.”
