HGWT Album Release Party w/ Lauren Morrow & FayRoy at Crowbar
July 13 @ 8:00 pm
Brokenmold Entertainment Presents
HGWT’s first new album in four years, Strange Chemistry, is the sound of a band with a renewed sense of purpose and direction. Following in the footsteps of fellow Florida rockers Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, while simultaneously paying tribute to some of their early indie-rock influences, HGWT set out to make the quintessential American rock album. Singer-songwriter-guitarist Matt Burke and fellow bandmates; brother and bassist Daniel Burke, guitarist Scott Anderson, drummer JP Beaubien, and keyboardist Edward Stork; along with help on several songs from good friend Garrett Klahn (Texas Is The Reason), deliver their most personal and emotionally resonant album to date. Strange Chemistry is the product of HGWT’s determination and commitment to each other and to the music.
“Their music has a great energy to it with infectious, sing-along choruses and refrains” said NPR’s Robin Hilton. American Songwriter Magazine referred to HGWT as “organic, infectious Americana Pop.” HGWT’s music has been featured in a number of film and TV productions; including the Netflix series The Ranch, CBS’s The Good Wife, Travel Channel’s Expedition Unknown and the PBS series Roadtrip Nation, as well as a national Chevy TV commercial campaign and more. The band has toured extensively throughout the US, playing many of the major music festivals and conferences. Their live performances have been described as rousing, rollicking, energetic and dynamic. “Burke & Co. have what it takes to win over any crowd.” – Suburban Apologist
HGWT’s last album Science from an Easy Chair has been called “a roots-rock opus… HGWT’s crowning masterpiece” (Bucket Full Of Nails), “easily HGWT’s best” (Creative Loafing), and “a solid record from start to finish loaded with songs that will stand up over time” (No Depression). “Boasting full-bodied playing and production, Science is like an arresting book on tape, but one you’ll want to listen to over and over.” (Big Takeover)
