“Chasm” is the new single by Muddy Ruckus. The band will release the song and its accompanying music video to all major outlets on May 10th. “Chasm” is an extended bluesy rocker with plenty of grit, a slow burning interplay between both Ryan Flaherty and Erika Stahl’s voices. Imagine a deep cut from the White Stripes’ Icky Thump album and you have “Chasm.” Listen to it exclusively here via SoundCloud at this link.
King Kyote is releasing two new singles, “Warriors” and “North Country Shakedown,” in the month of May leading up t0 his May 24th co-headline with Muddy Ruckus. “Warriors” is a spacious rhythm-driven track that’ll put you in the headspace for a late night drive, while “North Country Shakedown” is a gritty tragic story delivered by in your face vocals and instrumentation. KK describes it as “rock n’ roll with a heavy blues influence akin to a Jack White, Gary Clark Jr. or Black Keys song.”
About Muddy Ruckus
Muddy Ruckus is a punk blues rock duo from Portland, Maine. The stripped-down power duo features guitarist Ryan Flaherty and percussionist Erika Stahl. The band blends rootsy guitar and edgy percussion on a suitcase drum kit and is known for a full rock band sound, despite the fact that they’re a duo. They season their music with the salt of the eastern old ports, backroad electric grooves, and the mud of the Mississippi River where Flaherty grew up. The New York Music Daily calls Muddy Ruckus “Darkly Inventive Americana.” In April 2016, Muddy Ruckus was awarded “Best in State of Maine” by the New England Music Awards. The lyrics of Muddy Ruckus’ songs call for your attention and the soulfulness of both Erika and Ryan’s vocals draw in the salt and shadow of the band’s murky beginnings and luminous future.
About King Kyote
A renegade on the run. That’s how King Kyote styles himself- he and his band have performed nationwide here in the States alongside Taj Mahal, The Record Company, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Lee Brice and Houndmouth.
Harken to a summer night of whiskey drinking in a cabin among the pines. King Kyote’s music echoes the yells of rock n roll’s forefathers while having a deeply rooted harmony with the blues, soul & folk genres. King Kyote delivers a fiery and honest performance driven by his soulful passion for the music and the intention of telling a story. Look for King Kyote on the road on his “Thicker Than Thieves Tour 2019.”
