Hellbound Glory will release Pure Scum on June 5th, 2020. The sequence, being called “tales from a degenerate gambler”, was produced by two-time Grammy Award winning producer, Shooter Jennings (Brandi Carlile, Tanya Tucker). The album is his second release with Jennings’ Los Angeles based record label, Black Country Rock, and is a much anticipated follow up to his most critically-acclaimed album to date, Pinball. The announce also comes just after his 2010 album, Old Highs and New Lows was named the #4 Album of the Decade by Saving Country Music.
Leroy Virgil, who is Hellbound Glory, and Jennings go boldly into telling these musical tales of a degenerate gambler with the most straightforward country songs Virgil has ever written on Pure Scum. The Aberdeen, WA native relocated to Reno, NV, where he created Hellbound Glory, quickly becoming the proclaimed king of “Scumbag Country” while touring with country, southern rock, and alternative rock superstars (ZZ Top, Leon Russell, Kid Rock, 10 Years) encapsulating the inspiration for the record. The album was recorded in just two days at Station House Studio in Los Angeles, CA with Jennings’ massively talented group of musicians – Jamie Douglass on drums and percussion, Ted Russell Kamp on bass guitar, John Schreffler on pedal steel and guitars, and Aubrey Richmond on fiddle.
“This album is the most classic country record Hellbound Glory has ever made. It’s also the scummiest” Virgil says of the album. “All the vocals are live takes.”
Hellbound Glory’s Pure Scum will be available across digital platforms, and a vinyl, compact disc package featuring a glow-in-the-dark green vinyl available for pre-order via Black Country Rock.
