fried guitars of How Do You Feel. But then, on the emotional flipside, theres also the reflective wah-guitar lilt of Say It Isnt True, the mournful funeral-jazz slow-burn of No Easy Way and the heart-in-mouth acoustic confessional of Katie. Were diverse and complex people, Wilkinson says, and our audiences are as well. So we try to let our music reflect that.Just as eclectic are the lyrical themes. They really are all over the map, Wilkinson says of the topics explored on Demolition Day. Some are rooted in reality and personal experience. Head High Water Blues is a look back at the Hurricane Katrina experience now that ten years has passed. Much has been rebuilt, but much has not and never will be and the song is more about the emotional scars that can never be fully erased. Others are just fiction and storytelling. We had the music for Through Another Day, and it sounded sort of old and epic and Southern, and that inspired this Civil War-era storyline that became the lyrics. Others are just sort of playful nonsense about life and relationships, like Watch And Chain.Demolition Day is just the start. You might experience these eleven tracks for the first time on your stereo or smartphone, but as Honey Island Swamp Band tour across the States and beyond in 2016, you can expect them to take on a life of their own. These songs will continue to progress, develop and blossom, Wilkinson says. A record is a snapshot in time, a picture of where a song is at a particular moment. But weve never been the type of band to stick to one way of playing a song, so well continue to let the music evolve. Thats what keeps it fresh and exciting for us and we want to share that with our audiences.HONEY ISLAND SWAMP BAND:Aaron Wilkinson guitar, mandolin, harmonica, vocalsChris Mul lead and slide guitar, vocalsTrevor Brooks keysSam Price bass, vocalsGarland Paul drums, vocals
