Raunchy Southern rockers Jackyl are marking the 25th year since the release of their debut album with by putting out the appropriately titled compilation 25, which drops July 28th via Mighty Loud Records.
The 18-track set features Jackyl radio hits as “The Lumberjack,” “Down on Me,” “Push Comes to Shove” and “Favorite Sin,” as well as two previously unreleased tracks – a live version of “Redneck Punk” and a cover of Black Oak Arkansas’ “Hot and Nasty.”
“At the time we first hit the scene, we were told by quite a few interviewers and fans that we sounded like a cross between Black Oak Arkansas and AC/DC,” band leader Jesse James Dupree explains. “While we were familiar with AC/DC, we were not with BOA. We went back and listened, and were blown away, so much so that we recorded a cover of one of their most kick-ass tunes.”
The band is touring throughout the summer and fall, including dates at The Country Club in Augusta on September 21st, and The Stage on Bay in Savannah on September 22nd.
