The hardest working band in rock, Hollywood Blues-funk rockers Vintage Trouble return with their brand-new album Heavy Hymnal.
History has proven that when the world is in flames, it ignites the empathetic artists to siren their words, music, and rhythm, to blanket society’s fury and nurse scorched souls. The seemingly endless years of pandemic lockdown and social distancing, coupled with the turbulent plague of civil unrest and racial injustice, called on Vintage Trouble to step into their battle wear. Like so often before, they have spun records to drop onto the fighting grounds, with the intent to freeze the frame long enough to momentarily halt the warring world. And while at ease, we can freely choose to think before we strike or decide to retreat, rather than thoughtlessly charge into repeating history. This collection of heavy hymns is from the heart, and it provides a necessary rise to our ever reckoning.
Vintage Trouble comprises lead singer Ty Taylor, guitarist Nalle Colt, bassist Rick Barrio Dill, and drummer Richard Danielson. Taking the best parts of James Brown, Mick Jagger, Bruno Mars and Prince, vocalist Ty is widely regarded as one of the finest frontmen of his generation.
Vintage Trouble formed in Hollywood in 2010 and was ushered almost immediately to the world’s stages by legendary music manager Doc McGhee. Their acclaimed performance on “Later with Jools Holland” made them the sixth most trending topic in the world and catapulted their debut album “The Bomb Shelter Sessions” to number one on Amazon‘s UK charts. From there, the band was launched into non-stop touring, many times the world over, with acts like the Rolling Stones, AC/DC, The Who, Bon Jovi, Dave Matthews, Brian May, Gov’t Mule, Paloma Faith, and Lenny Kravitz to name a few. Vintage Trouble has main-staged Coachella, Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, Rock in Rio, Byron Bay Blues Festival, Bonnaroo, Life is Beautiful and most other major festivals around the world and the fellas were also crowned “Best New Band“ by Classic Rock magazine. They’ve appeared the biggest TV shows around the world including David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, and a record four times in one year on the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno”.
Don Was signed Vintage Trouble to Blue Note records for the bands second record, “1 Hopeful Rd“ and that album was followed by their “Chapter II” prolific quad set of Eps. The band has been heavily featured on movies and commercials including Honda, IBM, Supercuts and John Varvatos and many more.
Now, Vintage Trouble have signed to London-based Cooking Vinyl for a worldwide services deal to release the latest chapter in their career with Heavy Hymnal. “It’s an absolute privilege to be working with one of the finest live acts around, and with their most ambitious record to date Cooking Vinyl intends to push the band to a global audience” - Rob Collins, Cooking Vinyl.
