Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival Debut Set for Next Friday, June 17 as the Tornillo Tour Continues Selling Out Venues 10,000 Strong




TORNILLO, Texas – Riding high from the news earlier this week that four of their songs have earned new RIAA Gold and Platinum certifications, genre-bending band Whiskey Myers continues to share new music with today’s release of “The Wolf” off their forthcoming album Tornillo, set for release July 29 via the band’s own Wiggy Thump Records with distribution by Thirty Tigers. Pre-order / pre-save the album HERE.
The song is the latest in a string of recent releases previewing the album, including lead single “John Wayne,” currently climbing the Top 5 on the Texas Regional Radio Report chart, and is emblematic of the sound Esquire celebrates as “straight-up, booze-swilling, highway-driving, heart-on-your-sleeve, blood-on-your-knuckles country music.” Written solo by lead singer Cody Cannon, the lyrics are a battle cry from the independent band achieving massive mainstream success:


  I’ve done rattled through a tempest, I’ve done rocked through the storm
        These scars that I bear are hard earned and battle worn 
        They’re from crawling and scratching the whole damn way 
        Everything that you see is uncut and self-made 
        So who in the hell you think you’re playing with now?
        You done fucked around and let the wolf out
        And I’ll be prowling while you sleep
        You’re playing for fun, I’m playing to eat

The five-and-a-half-minute rocker is driven by Tornillo’s signature horns section and a blazing guitar riff, with American Songwriter recently proclaiming, “Whiskey Myers [is] in a league of their own with their signature hard-rocking sound on full display… Saddle up and settle in because Whiskey Myers is ready to take listeners on a country, rock, and blues-infused wild ride.”
Fans also got a sneak peek at the new song during the band’s sold-out Red Rocks debut earlier this week, where the six-piece thrilled the nearly 10,000 fans in attendance with two-plus hours of nonstop music and proved what Classic Rock Magazine declares of Whiskey Myers: “Authenticity: you can’t buy it, you can’t bluff it. And you can’t beat it when it comes to delivering dirty, down-home, electric guitar music from the American south.”

The Tornillo Tour continues through the summer with numerous already-sold-out stops, plus Whiskey Myers will make their debut at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival next Friday, June 17, and will host the return of their personally curated Firewater Music Festival Sept. 29 – Oct. 1 outside Kansas City.

About Whiskey Myers
Genre-bending band Whiskey Myers have played more than 2,500 live shows to ever-increasing crowd sizes since their emergence in 2007. Their forthcoming self-produced studio album, WHISKEY MYERS, out now on the band’s own Wiggy Thump Records. WHISKEY MYERS debuted at No. 1 on both the Country and Americana/Folk sales charts, at No. 2 on the Rock chart and No. 6 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart (No. 3 among new releases). Their previous album, Mud, reached No. 1 on the iTunes country chart with single “Stone” hitting Top 10 all genre. In total, Whiskey Myers have sold more than 1.2 million albums and amassed over 1.5 billion streams while earning four RIAA Gold and Platinum certifications. USA Today describes the band led by frontman Cody Cannon as “a riff-heavy blend of Southern rock and gritty country that has earned comparisons to the Allman Brothers Band and Led Zeppelin,” with Rolling Stone noting “it’s the seminal combination of twang and crunchy rock & roll guitars that hits a perfect sweet spot.” The band known for their high-energy live show and unique sound has also earned sync success with features (and an on-screen appearance) in Paramount Network’s hit show “Yellowstone” as well as the Renée Zellweger-led Netflix series “What/If,” the Angelina Jolie film “Those Who Wish Me Dead” and hit CBS series “SEAL Team.”
