About the Artist
Multi-platinum selling Jackyl has long since validated itself as America's Rock Band and will be proving it once again with the release of "When Moonshine and Dynamite Collide" in May 2010. Specialists in down and dirty blue-collar rock and roll, Jackyl has delivered an album that sounds exactly like Jackyl, except that it's one notch louder. "This album is a crunchy slab of rock and roll with a mouthful of Georgia Dirt," Dupree explains. "We're looking forward to hitting the road this year and taking these tunes to the stage." Jackyl's legacy of its wild, untamed and uncouth approach to rock 'n' roll is well established. The band hit the scene and immediately began firing off rock radio hits like "Down On Me," "When Will It Rain," "I Stand Alone," and most notably, "The Lumberjack" during which Dupree performs a chain-saw solo. The introduction of Jackyl's fifth instrument on album and in concert quickly became one of the band's many trademarks as the group blazed a path to infamy, sharing the stage with Aerosmith, Kiss, ZZ Top, Ted Nugent and Damn Yankees and working with industry heavyweights such as John Kalodner. AC/DC's Brian Johnson would go on to lend his vocals to the track "Locked And Loaded" which still stands as his only contribution outside of AC/DC recordings. The band has earned two Guinness Book of World Records citations and the designation "The Hardest Working Band in Rock 'N' Roll" for performing 100 shows in 50 days as well as 21 shows in 24 hours. Staying true to their working band roots, Jackyl is a staple on the summer festival circuit and maintains their commitment to every show being the sonic equivalent to a man being shot out of a cannon. Jackyl was recently featured on the hit TruTV show "Full Throttle Saloon," which was created and executive produced by Jesse James Dupree, and the band will be headlining an extensive tour through 2010 in support of the new album.
