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!

BCR is BACK for Black Friday 2015 / Countach Release Date!

We here at BCR Los Angeles and BCR Memphis are proud to announce yet another slamming Record Store Day Black Friday with THREE (3) ruling releases coming to a participating record store near you!

12079208_10153291020883460_6468307580170099239_n

1. Waylon Jennings – Live in Concert Vol. 2 – This is a limited 12″ white vinyl of a never-before-released concert of Waylon and the Waylor’s from the year I was born and in my opinion is the most badass live show I’ve ever heard recorded on my father. This full concert is a must have for any Waylon fan. Only 2000 will be printed, and this will NEVER be available on streaming & mainstream digital services, so this is your once change to get it! (Record Store Day Exclusive)

2. Shooter Jennings Official and Lukas Nelson – A Civilized Hell – Lukas Nelson & myself got together in 2012 and started work on an album. Even though our dads are country legends, we both took our own paths, and came together to do some pretty wicked stuff we are very proud of. We decided to whet your whistle with this white 7″ of two of the tracks for RSD BF. The A side is a ruling song Lukas wrote and the B side is a Velvet Underground cover. Only 1000 will be printed so make sure you pick this one up! (Record Store Day Exclusive)

3. The Angry Grandpa – The Most Sensible Thing – As a lot of you know the late, great Colonel Jon Hensley magically managed to hook me up with the youtube superstar Angry Grandpa last year, and after several pranks, shows and a Sausage Gravy Cookout, I managed to wrangle recording the old man singing his favorite Waylon tune. It’ll surprise you for sure. And the B-Side is a sneak peak into the recording process with the cranky old bastard, and also features the Colonel in a classic moment in time. This one will be available digitally on Black Friday, as well as 200 limited copies of the white 7″ vinyl have been printed.

All 3 releases are dedicated to the loving memory of the Colonel Jon Hensley.

Oh, and I’d like to also announce that my new album ‘Countach (for Giorgio)’ has a release date! It will be released officially, worldwide on March 11th, 2016, and features Steve Young, Brandi Carlile, Richard Garriott & Marilyn Manson, among others! 2016 is gonna rule hard folks!

Covers and poster by the great Neltner Small Batch of course!

– Much love from BCR, your ruling friend, Shooter Jennings

lastdaze-kentucky-cover-1600

The dual single package offers the first taste of this young new band. Produced by Shooter Jennings, Symbols & Snares shows off a diverse and inventive young roots band on their way out of obscurity and into the minds and hearts of music-lovers everywhere.

“The best thing about Katy (Cole) and her voice and songs is that, one minute it reminds me of something you would get from Florence & the Machine and the next minute it might be a beautiful country ballad. Then something reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails will pop up on the record. It’s so unpredictable, which is the way I like my music. I was really glad they asked me to be a part of this project and I’m very proud of the record we’ve been making this year.”
