Check out the new animated music video!
Here is the link… http://youtu.be/A5jRmiK1D3M

 

It was created by Terry Border of Bent Objects fame.  From The Rev.,

“I had a conversation with [wife and washboard player] Breezy recently and I said, ‘We need an animated music video,’ the frontman for the Indiana country blues outfit tells us.”The next day Terry Border of Bent Objects contacted us about wanting to make a video. The timing was miraculous. We were really excited, because his artwork is so interesting and funny. It is the first animated video we have ever had, and thanks to Terry’s unique sense of humor, we are very proud of the way it turned out.”

Catch them on the The Big Damn Blues Revolution Tour with Jimbo Mathus and Alvin Youngblood Hart next month.

ROARS ACROSS THE COUNTRY THIS SPRING

 

Big Damn Blues Revolution Tour Kicks Off March 6th With Special Guests: Jimbo Mathus & Grammy Winner Alvin Youngblood Hart

NEW-BIG-DAMN-BLUES-POSTER

Los Angeles, CA (January 31, 2013) – 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 albumBetween 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.

Something for Nothing – our new music video


Check out this video for the song “Something for Nothing,” from the Between the Ditches.

“Something for Nothing” is the second video from The Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band’s album, “Between the Ditches.”

The video was shot in one day in Brown County, IN on the hottest day in Southern Indiana history. Special thanks to all the workers in the video, mostly Brown County Legends, and friends, family, and fans that helped make the video possible. Special thanks to Lil Bub the cat. Very special thanks to Jennie DeVoe for lending some additional background vocals to the song.

European Tour, Road Journal, and More!


Greetings Folks, We are about to embark on the European leg of this tour, and we couldn’t be more excited.  I know there are some towns we were not able to add over there just due to time contraints, so I hope that our pals over there can plan a road trip!  Fret not if you are in the USA, because when we return, we will be heading to the West Coast, then the East coast with some huge stops inbetween.  So check the schedule at http://www.bigdamnband.com/shows/ for the full show schedule.

I used to do a photo road journal at the end of a tour.  They were really fun, but very time consuming.  I like logging the experiences, but I would much rather be pickin’ or outside than in front of a computer screen.  Recently I decided that instead our twitter/instagram is where that will live.  You definitely need to follow it, because it is in real time, it is fast, and it is easy as Sunday morning.  twitter.com/bigdamnband – (@bigdamnband).  The photo above is from the twitter/instagram.  It is of a custom cigar box guitar built for me by Medicine Man CBG’s in Buffalo, NY.  What a beauty!

Thanks so much to those awesome fans who have been out to the shows so far on this tour.  It has been amazing.  I love the new record, and I love playing these songs.  Please continue to spread the word, share the Devils Look Like Angel’s video, and get tickets for upcoming shows.  We get by thanks to you.  I have felt a lot of love from our fans lately, and I just want to say that I promise to always bring you real, handmade, from the heart, organic music in return.

Thanks for all the support!

The Rev.

THE REVEREND PEYTON’S BIG DAMN BAND DEBUTS OMEN-ESQUE VIDEO FOR “DEVILS LOOK LIKE ANGELS

“We wanted it to be a little bit creepy, a little bit cute, but totally bad ass!” says The Reverend Peyton about his bands new video for “Devils Look Like Angels.”

Directed by Kevin Custer (The Gaslight Anthem, Hatebreed, Lil Wayne and “Clap Your Hands”) and shot in the bands hometown of Brown County Indiana the video cleverly captures the true lyrical essence behind “Devils Look Like Angels.”

“Deivils Looks Like Angels” comes from the bands new album Between The Ditches, which debuted at #1 on the iTunes Blues chart this week.

The Big Damn Band is currently on a full headlining U.S. Tour doing what they do best, blowing people away with their incendiary live show. You can check out the video via the YouTube link below, as well as see a full list of the bands headlining tour dates.
