As first reported here, the Music City Madman Joe Buck, the former guitarist for Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers and bassist for Hank III has signed with Century Media Records, and will be releasing his first official solo album through them.
Well now I can report that the album will be called Demon in my Head after the song of the same name, and is slated for an “early Fall” release. The album was recorded in Seattle at the Soundhouse Recordings studio over 10 days earlier this month, and the producer was the legendary Jack Endino who has produced albums for Nirvana, Zeke, Soundgarden, High on Fire, and hundreds more. Donny Paycheck of Zeke might have some involvement in the project as well. Also, it is confirmed that Keith Neltner will be doing the album art for the project.
From Joe Buck: “Its gonna give us a nice push and I’m really excited about it. I’ve got something to say. . . It ups the ante.”
The album will include new songs, as well as a few “hits” from his previous DIY releases. Just like his earlier releases, Joe Buck plays every note himself. Judd Films was on location during the studio recording to get footage for an upcoming EPK for the album, and was kind enough to share some exclusive photos with the rest of us.
And prior to being in Seattle to record, Joe Buck was in California, recording with his old buddy “Captain” Sean Wheeler of Throw Rag, so keep your eyes peeled for that project in the future as well.
