Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band is happy to announce the 'Big Damn Blues Revolution Tour', which will take the band throughout the U.S. this spring with special guests Jimbo Mathus and Alvin Youngblood Hart.
With a reputation for their incendiary live shows, it seemed only natural for The Big Damn Band to hit the road again in support of Between the Ditches, their latest album. But this time, The Rev, Breezy & Cuz will unleash their ferocious blues explosion to the masses alongside some of their favorite artists for what is sure an unforgettably raucous affair.
Conceptualized by none other than the Reverend Peyton himself, 'The Big Damn Blues Revolution Tour' is a musical event that will showcase today's top blues artists in a whole new light. Coming along for the ride are Jimbo Mathus, best known for his work with the swing revival band Squirrel Nut Zippers and blues legend Buddy Guy as well as Grammy Award-winning guitarist Alvin Youngblood Hart. The tour kicks off in March then the Rev will make several appearances at the world-renowned music festival South By Southwest in Austin, TX before continuing the tour throughout the summer.
Between the Ditches has been received with enthusiasm since its debut at #1 on the iTunes Blues chart week of release. They've received critical raves in the US and internationally, video play from CMT and MTVu, charting at both college and Americana radio and inclusion in the hit Showtime series 'Shameless' starring William H. Macy.
Roaring out of the southern Indiana foothills, Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band, plays a brand of Americana and Blues that stands alone - Delta blues and hillbilly fervor combine with musical acuity sharp as razor wire. Their new album Between The Ditches is a chronicle of this lifestyle. Since it arrived in August, excellent reviews have appeared in publications like Vintage Guitar, Classic Rock Magazine, Alternative Press and Living Blues. Their fifth album celebrates the growl of a good truck engine, the fiercest passion for their country home and the importance of family.
