MU­SIC NEWS & NOTES

Public News (Houston) - - PUBLIC NEWS EVENTS -

Af­ter log­ging in over 150 dates on the road last year, The Swon Broth­ers are re­leas­ing brand new mu­sic. The duo spent the bet­ter part of 2016 on Car­rie Un­der­wood's Sto­ry­teller Tour, and also played a full slate of their own shows. They didn't let the road or the miles un­der them de­ter their fo­cus from cre­at­ing new mu­sic for their fans, so they went into the stu­dio last fall with pro­ducer Brad Hill (Maren Mor­ris, Broth­ers Os­borne) and came out with a new EP called PRETTY COOL SCARS, which will be re­leased on March 17th. Fans can down­load the lead sin­gle, “Don't Call Me,” from the forth­com­ing EP on iTunes HERE TO­DAY! Zach and Colton de­scribe “Don't Call Me” as a song about be­ing in a bad sit­u­a­tion, but be­com­ing stron- ger de­spite the cir­cum­stances. “It's a song I think we can all re­late to,” says Colton. “It's about fi­nally get­ting to a point where you get over the things you need to get over, and you can move on with your life. I think it can rep­re­sent peo­ple in a lot of dif­fer­ent ways.” “We al­ways like to try out songs in our live show be­fore we make the de­ci­sion to record them. We like to lis­ten to our fans that way, and hands down, our fans gave us every in­di­ca­tion that this was def­i­nitely a keeper. We knew we had some­thing golden when we just sat down and played it for the first time in our liv­ing room with just the two of us, and it just felt like it was writ­ten for us,” says, Zach. The new sin­gle is one of six songs that ap­pear on PRETTY COOL SCARS and Zach and Colton can't wait to share this new mu­sic with their fans.

FIRST EVER “BEST OF” PLUS LIVE COL­LEC­TION IN­CLUDES BRAND NEW SONG “DI­VINE TER­MI­NA­TION”

Su­per­group Chick­en­foot will re­lease “Di­vine Ter­mi­na­tion,” its first new tune in 5 years on BEST + LIVE, the group's first ever best of col­lec­tion, on March 10, 2017. Chick­en­foot fea­tures front man Sammy Hagar, gui­tar god Joe Sa­tri­ani, bassist Michael An­thony (Van Halen), and drum­mer Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Pep­pers).

In ad­di­tion to “Di­vine Ter­mi­na­tion,” BEST + LIVE in­cludes over 90 min­utes of live mu­sic – for the first time re­leased on CD. Sammy Hagar says, “Lis­ten­ing to this col­lec­tion of songs from the ‘Foot brings back mem­o­ries of some of the most fun I've ever had in a band. The chem­istry be­tween Chad, Joe, Mike and me is very spe­cial. It's al­most like vis­ual mu­sic -- you can see us hav­ing fun when you lis­ten to th­ese songs.” In May 2016, Chick­en­foot re­united for two highly-an­tic­i­pated one­time shows at Har­rah's Lake Ta­hoe, and played their first com­plete set in more than six years, along with a spe­cial un­veil­ing of the new tune “Di­vine Ter­mi­na­tion.” Joe Sa­tri­ani de­scribes the track as “bone crunch­ing, hell rais­ing rock, drip­ping with at­ti­tude and vibe. Just the way Chick­en­foot likes it!”
