As mentioned above, HANK3 will release a brand new DOUBLE country album, entitled Brothers of the 4×4, and a single punk album, entitled A Fiendish Threat, with his new project “3”. Both albums will be released in a double LP edition. With these dual releases,Brothers Of The 4×4 and A Fiendish Threat added to his already huge and varied arsenal of music, HANK3 will be raising all sorts of hell on stage while the fans raise their glasses in the audience once again, and you can bet your last dollar a damn good time will be had by all. Fans will get to taste the hardcore punk horror rock of A Fiendish Threat, a rippingly fast blast of sounds reminiscent of The Misfits, Minor Threat, 7 Seconds, The Ramones and other punk rock greats that are as much a part of HANK3‘s musical identity as his country roots. Fans will also get to hear HANK3’s country record, Brothers of the 4×4, which is just that- country, and the realness of it shines throughout the record like moonlight hitting a mason jar of corn liquor- it ain’t always the smoothest, and it doesn’t come wrapped in a fancy package, but it’s 100% pure whoop-ass in a bottle that gets the job done quicker and better and reminds you of where you originally came from once you figure out what just hit you.
When HANK3 hits the road, he hits it much harder than most. HANK3 shows are legendary for their length and intensity, averaging three hours a night, starting with a country set and ending with whatever his latest musical experiment happens to be. The man goes full throttle all the time, every time, as anyone who has ever been to one of his innumerable shows will attest.
In reference to the new records themselves, besides living the songs’ subject matter first, HANK3 sang and played both guitar and drums on both. As if pulling triple duty wasn’t enough, he engineered, produced, mixed and mastered all the tunes as well. Recording in his own home and releasing music on his own label, the Megaforce distributed HANK3 Records, allowed Williams complete creative control during the four month period it took to make both records.
