Southern Gentlemen’s new Cd “Valley of Fire” features the same lineup as the band’s previous release “Third Time Is The Charm.” Vocalist Eric Johns, bassist Dave Swart and drummer Mike Haid join guitarist David T. Chastain.
David states, “This lineup really clicked on the last Cd so I wanted to carry forward and see what we could do with the guys contributing from day one of the recording process. In the past I had written everything but this time Eric wrote all of the lyrics and melodies and this really added a different ingredient to the mix that definitely moved the music to another level. Mike and Dave really ‘locked’ in together to form a foundation that powers each track.”
Southern Gentlemen’s sound has been described by critics as Rock, Metal, Blues, 80s, 70s, Hard Rock and everything in between. “Valley of Fire” continues the band’s mission of incorporating Hard Rock, Blues and Metal into the Southern Gentlemen Sound. A sound that is growing in acceptance and appreciation for its uniqueness in today’s scene.
By the way you have probably heard some of the other Southern Gentlemen Cds and didn't even know it. The band's music has been used extensively on numerous TV networks such as VH1, Discovery, USA, MTV, A&E, Biography, National Geographic, History Channel, Discovery, Discovery Health, CMTV, Comedy Central, Learning Channel, FIT TV, Travel Channel, Animal Planet, Bravo, HGTV, VSPOT, Style, Disney, SCI-FI, Spike TV and others. A track was also on the DVD of the Adam Sandler/Chris Rock movie "The Longest Yard."
David’s final words, “Either you get it or you don’t. We don’t really care what is happening around us and we don’t really listen to a lot of what is considered ‘popular’ or ‘in’. Southern Gentlemen is having a great time playing classic music with a modern slant and we nor our fans would have it any other way.”
