Got a hankering for Hank3? Well, Hank Williams III, now and forever to be known as Hank3, will indulge you when he kicks off the first leg of his 2011 North American tour in Atlanta on Labor Day, Monday, September 5th. The 22-date tour will play shows through the South into Texas, across to Los Angeles, and up to the Pacific Northwest, ending in Denver on October 6th. Well this is an answer to any music fans prayers, now ain't it? Yay Hank3!
"I've been off the road for awhile, and I'm looking' at two years of bein' full-on dedicated to goin' out there and doin' what we do," said Hank3 in a statement. "That's one of the reasons I wanted to release all of these albums at the same time, so I could just focus back on the touring again." While "What comes first: the touring or the album?" is an age-old argument for many bands, for Hank3, the road is life and life is the road!
As his fans have come to expect, Hank3 will give everyone in attendance their money's worth by performing for anywhere from two-and-a-half to three-hour sets a night. That's a helluva lot of Hank3, and that's just how we like it.
The evening will open with a Country set, followed by a louder, rowdy Hellbilly set, culminating with a set featuring his new metal/doom band, Attention Deficit Domination. Horns up!
"This is gonna be a little different for the fans who have been used to seein' Assjack for the last 10 years," Hank3 explained. "Assjack was almost fast hardcore, and ADD is slow, Melvins, sleep-oriented doom rock. So it's gonna be a lot different to see and feel, compared to what most people are used to seein' me do live."
All three of Hank3's new releases were recorded at The Haunted Ranch, Hank3's home and studio just outside of Nashville. Hank3 is giving us three. That's why we love this man.
"I've always taken the hard road," he added. "That's what makes us different and what gives the wide audience range of 14 to 80. Cowboys, punks, metalheads, jocks, grandmas, and the average everyday person. We bring them all together under the same roof. That's what makes us proud. That's what makes it worth it at the end of the day."
