Over the few years that I’ve been posting about bands and record labels , I’ve made a few friends along the way and through those friendships I’ve been able to learn that for those that run the labels , the bands they pick help to sum up who and what they are all about. And I can tell you that Lou of Rum Bar Records likes his rock ‘n’ roll straight up , no bullshit just rockers who all look willing to throw it down if the situation calls for a little action. It’s good old fashioned, time proven no whining allowed rock. Today my focus is on yet another fantastic band that has just put out a new CD with Lou , The Right Here. These guys are rockin the shit out of these tracks, it’s 100 miles per hour blowing by you going 80 in the safe lane driving down I-95, heading to the beach. Total badass rock ‘n’ roll and don’t forget to catch The Right Here on Tour . Dates Below….
Minneapolis, MN 2016… From Rum Bar Records / The Right Here
Straight out of (one of) those beloved Twin Cities, The Right Here has been doling out their rowdy brand of rock’n’roll since 2010.
Embracing a style similar, and kindred to beloved bands such as Lucero, Drag the River, Old 97’s, Avail, The Bottle Rockets, Red City Radio, and home town brothers The Replacements.
The Right Here debuted their first full length, All Herky Jerky, in 2012. Not long after, founding members Lewis Miller and Luke Lecheler solidified the current lineup with the addition of drummer Ryan Haasch and bassist Adam Peterson. They have since shared the stage with a variety of talent, including Tim Barry, Two Cow Garage, Nato Coles and the Blue Diamond Band, and Masked Intruder. The Right Here sees the fruits of their non-stop efforts paid off with the completion of their second full length, Stick To The Plan.
The Right Here have created their own sound that fits in perfectly with the current punk rock’n’roll scene that’s happening in Minneapolis right now. Songs including the thundering, foot stomping, barn burners “Judge Me When I’m Sober”, “Seattle, Breathe”, “If This Land Isn’t My Land” and lead off single & video “Leaving For A Reason” are the perfect combination of punk, blue collar rock, and alt-country that will make your music loving heart pitter-patter with excitement. Soak on up the somber, hauntingly, beautiful suds of “Drunk and Rolling Around” followed by the heart-felt stunner “Leaving for a Reason” and you will find yourself immersed in true, pure, rock and roll from the Heartland.
Recorded in 2015 with Andy Mathison at Immortal Audio, Stick To The Plan will be released as a double label album in June of 2016. Vinyl will be available via Throwing Things Records (St.&Louis), while Rum Bar Records (Boston via Astoria) is heading up the CDs.
