Reverend Horton Heat Returns with “REV”

Reverend Horton Heat: REVIf you dig on rockabilly sounds with plenty of old-school rock-and-roll double bass work, you’ll be thrilled by The Reverend Horton Heat’s REV.

It’s the psychobilly outfit’s first album since 2009’s more country-oriented Laughin’ and Cryin’ with the Reverend Horton Heat.

As the band’s records have since 1989, the album features the work of upright/electric bass player Jimbo Wallace, who also recently provided slap bass for Jello Biafra & the Guantanamo School of Medicine’s record White People & the Damage Done.

As always, the Reverend Horton Heat brings the fun, with tracks like “Let Me Teach You How to Eat” (and if you just need more Heat, check out second video, “Spooky Boots”):

REV is out now on CD. and digital formats (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
