The Whiskey Daredevils might be the last honest-to-God cowpunk band standing on the American landscape.
Combining equal parts classic country, punk rock, and 60s garage, the Whiskey Daredevils continue to mine Americana music as a source of inspiration and identity. The Daredevils formed from the ashes of The Cowslingers, one of the most prominent bands in the garage/trash rock revival from the late 90s/early 2000s. Since 2004, original Cowslingers Greg Miller (vocals) and Leo P. Love (drums) have teamed up with guitarist Gary Siperko (Rocket From The Tombs, Mofos) and bass player Sugar Wildman (Lords of the Highway) to carry the baton of their twisted vision of what American roots music is and should be in modern times as the Whiskey Daredevils.
The band has just released their ninth full length release, “Nashville Surprise” recorded with producer Dexter Green at SeaLab Studios. Dexter is well known in East Nashville’s underground circles as a producer and arranger with credits as varied as alt country upstart Derek Hoke to the Collective Soul Top 10 hit “Better Now”. “Nashville Surprise” was recorded shortly after and written primarily on the Whiskey Daredevils latest tour of Europe, their sixth. Filled with Miller’s lyric s of bad choices and late nights, it pairs perfectly with Siperko’s standout guitar playing. This LP, on red vinyl, is meant to be played loud and often.
The Whiskey Daredevils are well known on the indie rock circuit, constantly out on the road. The band has showcased at SXSW, played every noteworthy indie rock club you can think of in America and Europe, and has played with a who’s who of genre friendly acts like Southern Culture on the Skids, Dale Watson. Supersuckers, the Sadies, Blackberry Smoke, Legendary Shackshakers, the Trashmen, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Whitey Morgan, Hillbilly Casino, Left Lane Cruiser, Dick Dale, Brian Setzer, John Doe, Jason and the Scorchers, Nine Pound Hammer, and almost anyone else that you can think of that sounds anything close to them. The Whiskey Daredevils are a real American rock and roll band.
