Reno, Nevada’s Hellbound Glory has announced plans for a brand new album. The working title is Damaged Goods, and it is set to be out by the end of this summer. But wait Don Pardo, there’s more. Frontman, singer, and songwriter Leroy Virgil is also working on an EP for his more signer/songwriter-oriented side project called “The Excavators” that has the tentative title of Underground.
Hellbound Glory’s 2010 offering Old Highs & New Lows was a critic’s favorite, winning praise from The 9513 and Country California to name a few, and was Saving Country Music’s 2010 Album of the Year. With Old Highs and their freshman album Scumbag Country, Leory Virgil proved himself a preeminent songwriter, backed by a badass stable of musicians.
The band is also currently booking a European Tour for November and December.
Saving Country Music captured a few new songs during Hellbound’s 2011 South by Southwest appearance that we might see on one of the new projects, and there’s a couple more on the official bootleg Live From The Cracker Swamp.
