Randy Rogers Band To Release New Album And Tour, ‘Hellbent’
Randy Rogers Band has announced their eighth studio album, Hellbent, will be released on April 26. The 11-track album was produced by four-time Grammy winner Dave Cobb. The band also announced their tour of the same name, which will kick off in March.
The band’s first single “Crazy People” from Hellbent reflects a unique aspect of Rogers’ life growing up.
“I used to be scared of neon signs at restaurants because it had been drilled in my head that people were drinking and therefore, they were crazy,” Rogers said. “We took the irony and had some fun with it.”
Hellbent represents the latest chapter in Rogers’ multi-faceted career. A college graduate with a degree in public relations, Rogers is also the co-owner of several Texas venues, including Cheatham Street Warehouse in San Marcos, Texas. Additionally, he’s a founding partner in Big Blind Management, steering the careers of Red Shahan and Parker McCollum. A fan of collaboration both inside and out of his own band, Rogers has partnered with friend Wade Bowen on the infectious Hold My Beer projects and joined forces with Lone Star legend Robert Earl Keen as The Stryker Brothers. He recently joined Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson and Jerry Jeff Walker to sing on Michael Martin Murphey’s Austinology. Hellbent returns Rogers to his primary priority: the band’s own music.
“We’re in it for the long haul,” Rogers said. “We’re lifers. This is obviously our way of life. This isn’t some Johnny-come-lately group of guys. We’re like an oak tree. We’re not going anywhere. We’re not hinged on whether our next single will be a No.1. We’re not hinged on an album topping the charts. We have a great and loyal fan base and we do things right. When we play our shows, people expect to have a great night and to go home satisfied. As long as we keep doing that, no change in the industry, no record deal or anything like that can make or break this band.”
