The Southern Alternative Rock Band HESTER would like to wish everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!! One thing is for sure, 2013 was an insane & crazy year for the band beginning with a performance at The Viper Room in Los Angeles followed by their first live performance at The High Watt in Nashville, Tennessee, headlining the Southern Freedom Music Festival 2013 in Tallahassee, Florida, receiving airplay and interviews with Mexico City Radio Station Rock Show Host Lorena Sarti, video interview with Beat Magazine and recording sessions for their upcoming release "Right As Rain" just to name a few milestones the band achieved this past year. The boys of SAR are ready for 2014 and excited about what's ahead.
PEACE ON EARTH & GOOD WILL TOWARDS ALL ...Y'ALL !
With their new album nearing completion, the Southern Alternative Rock band "HESTER" is about to unleash the bonus track from their upcoming album, "Right As Rain" as a single. It will be available on iTunes, CD Baby and other download sites early in 2014. This is one hot, rock and roll band and their new release demonstrates how much the group has evolved since the release of their first album "Here I Am". The new songs are harder, edgier, packed with energy and emotion that you get when you hear the guys perform live. Give it an ear or two cause to say your going to dig it would be an understatement. Your going to love this album...it's smoking hot y'all.
Due to some unforeseen events the new HESTER album "Right As Rain" was delayed earlier this year but is back on track for release early in 2014. The band recorded twelve songs at Spider Studios, Picayune, Mississippi with Joby Barnum engineering the project. For those of you who have seen HESTER live, the new album will contain the following songs: Can't Take My Gun; Stuck; Someday; County Line; More Than That; Us; Her Love Is Gone; Take Me Home; I Won't Let You; Avalon; Mama and of course the title cut "Right As Rain". It should be available on ITunes, CD Baby and all digital download sites in the near future. Stay Tuned!
HESTER recently returned from a West Coast promotional tour for their upcoming release "Right As Rain". The group was in Nashville earlier this year headlining at the Hi-Watt club at Cannery Row, one of Nashville's finest live music venues, with Suzy Ragsdale, Matt Butcher and Lynn Manderson.
