JASON BOLAND & SHOOTER JENNINGS ANNOUNCE TOUR DATES

(Nashville, Tennessee…) – November 21, 2016 – Jason Boland, one of the leading lights in the Red Dirt music scene, and eclectic singer/songwriter/producer Shooter Jennings have teamed up for a tour that will hit 10 markets beginning December 9, 2016. The unique acoustic tour will see the two share the stage for the entire show, swapping songs and stories about music and the road.

Friendship between the two creative minds dates back at least five years, when Shooter co-produced Jason Boland & The Stragglers’ Rancho Alto album in 2011. Soon after Shooter signed with Red 11 Music for booking this year, the company’s Jon Folk suggested they hit the road together.

This year has been a busy one for Shooter. His Black Country Rock label released his Countach (for Giorgio)album in March. Comprised of songs composed or inspired by production pioneer Giorgio Moroder, the collage style journey through 80s and 90s culture, innovative songwriting, genre-bending fiddle-meets-synthesizer soundscapes included guest appearances by Brandi Carlile, Marilyn Manson, Steve Young and Lord British Richard Garriott.

On election day he released Black Ribbons: The Ultimate Edition, a remastered version of his 2010 genre-breaking, dystopian concept album narrated by famed horror author Stephen King. He supported the new album with a provocative limited audio series entitled “Beyond The Black,” which takes music lovers song by song through the story of Black Ribbons and how the concepts and theories behind the project still ring true today. He also dishes on politics, conspiracy theories and more on the weekly series, which is available now at http://beyondthe.black.

Announcing Black Ribbons Ultimate Edition!

BlackRibbons_Comp_V2

Shooter Jennings and BCR Los Angeles proudly announce the re-release of his 2010 album Black Ribbons in a limited-edition package that includes vinyl, cd and unreleased tracks. The reissue of the critically-acclaimed music comes in at the perfect time for the genre-breaking, dystopian concept album…Election Day , November 8, 2016.

The limited, special edition re-release will be offered as a package that includes:
– double vinyl LP remastered edition of Black Ribbons
– CD copy of Black Ribbons
– CD copy of previously unreleased, rare and new tracks from Shooter Jennings & Hierophant
– Digital download of Black Ribbons and the bonus material
– New album art and special packaging

Narrated by acclaimed horror author Stephen King, Black Ribbons is a concept album set in the near future, when the U.S. Government has control over the airwaves and a lone radio DJ vows to play the one band the authorities don’t want him to play. The album takes the listener on an incredible multi-genre, anti-establishment infused journey that brings you right back where the album was conceptualized – truth and awakening.

“On Black Ribbons, Jennings illustrates the despair that seems to be the zeitgeist now with dark, densely textured songs,” wrote Meredith Ochs in a review for npr music’s “All Things Considered” when the album was first released. “He borrows heavily from Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers and The Beatles circa Abbey Road.”

“Although his albums with his hard-edged alt-country band the .357s tested the boundaries of mainstream tastes, ’Black Ribbons’ has bypassed those limits entirely, crafting a darkly atmospheric rock concept album about the last voice of true freedom in the land, a freewheeling late-night talk-show DJ called Will O’; the Wisp, voiced by King,” wrote Randy Lewis in the LA Times.

Along with the re-release, Jennings announced a limited series entitled “Beyond The Black,” which takes music lovers song by song through the story of Black Ribbons and how the concepts and theories behind the project still ring true today.

Also, now available are the “Wake Up!” and “I Vote BCR” T-Shirts to help celebrate the new album! Only available at www.bcrmedia.com!
