Riverboat Gamblers Release Video For “Eviction Notice”, Leave For Tour

By on October 4, 2012

Dubbed the “Wolf & Snakes Tour” Riverboat Gamblers will hit the road today with Reno, NV’s Cobra Skulls in support of their new album The Wolf You Feed, out now on Volcom Entertainment.  To kick off the tour, the band has released a video for the track “Eviction Notice” (see Brooklyn Vegan debut Sept 3).    
The video for “Eviction Notice” was made by Andy Campbell and avant-artist, poet, songwriter, video director, and member of the Golden Boys (who were recently featured on No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain) – John Wesley Coleman.  “John is the current example of the classic Texas weirdo artist that we always wanted to work with” says Gamblers’ Mike Wiebe, adding “I think in 30 years people are going to think of him in the Roky Erickson, Daniel Johnston, Willie Nelson kind of vein.”    
The Wolf You Feed perfectly captures the often-forgotten era of the Dictators and Iggy Pop’s weirder solo stuff while still retaining a remarkable amount of variance in in its songs. From the sweetly scathing anthem “Bite Your Tongue” to the piano-driven, Murder City Devils-esque death march of “Gallows Bird” and classic Alice Cooper-esque feel of “Loser Neck,” the album juxtaposes all of these influences into something that’s got its roots in the past yet still sounds astonishingly relevant.

“ATX punx finally grow up, flex polished muscles, moody might via hard chugging (and flange).” – SPIN
“Look, I’m neither a writer for Rolling Stone, nor an intern at Crypt Records; accordingly, when I hear the term “real rock and roll,” I go to the other side of the bar. But sometimes, even the most overused terminology applies. The new Riverboat Gamblers album, The Wolf You Feed, is-ahem-that.” – Noisey
“Riverboat Gamblers have been one of the most consistent (and consistently underappreciated) punk bands in the scene for more than a decade, expertly balancing force and swagger on their fifth album, The Wolf You Feed.” – Alternative Press
“On The Wolf You Feed, Riverboat Gamblers have given up the explicit anarchy of their earlier songs and replaced it with a dread and a menace that keeps their eminently hummable melodies grounded in approachable human frailty. “Comedians” is an excellent example of the band’s relatively newfound restraint tempered with a glint of the abandon that coursed through their earlier catalog.” – Chicagoist
