Red Dirt metal heroes Texas Hippie Coalition have confirmed a string of shows throughout November and into December as the band continues to tour in support of it’s Carved Records’ sophomore effort, Peacemaker.
The band, who have been touring since before the Peacemaker disc was released in August had the opportunity to share the stage with Southern rock heroes Lynyrd Skynyrd for a string of dates as well as their own headlining shows. “Deep south n Dirty south collided, and southern rock flag has never waived so HIGH,” says THC frontman, BigDad Ritch. “Thank you Skynyrd Nation for your open arms. See yawl on the road.”
“Turn It Up“, the lead single from Peacemaker has received over 3,000 Mediabase monitored spins to date, having been heard by more than 9 million radio listeners across the US. The track has spent more than a dozen weeks on the Mediabase Active Rock airplay chart and is getting spins in such major markets as Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Phoenix and more.
Press has been highly supportive of the album with Screamer magazine proclaiming the record to be “… the rare type of album that will hook you in from the first listen” and about.com saying, “Peacemaker is furious witness to THC cranking through 11 tracks that declare what bad-ass outlaws they are …”. Metal Underground states that the band provides … a rock / metal melting pot that garners fans from across the musical spectrum” while AOL Noisecreep states that Peacemaker has “crushing riffs!” and examiner.com screams that it’s “… a barrel chested badass beast of a record that will rattle your teeth and ravage your old lady.”
