“The Hellbilly Pioneer” HANK3 Announces U.S. Spring Tour
Hitting the Road in Support of FOUR New Albums Released in September – New Albums Feature Appearances by Tom Waits, Les Claypool and More!
Known for many years as the only man with the balls to fuse the respective genres of backwoods country and ear-splitting speed metal together, music legend Hank3 recently conjured up another surprise— presenting four new records to fans simultaneously on September 6th, 2011. The records were released through his own record label, Hank3 Records, in distribution partnership with Megaforce Records (MRI). To commemorate these new albums, Hank3 will head out on a three week U.S. trek through several Eastern states in March. Hank3 kicks off the tour in Chattanooga, TN on March 2nd, and continues through March 21st in St. Louis, MO. Make sure to come out and witness a candid, brazen, and extended whirlwind of a set; this is Hank3, 100%, full tilt boogie—a show fans surely do not want to miss.

Hank3’s four new releases feature a broad range of music that melds several different genres—something Hank3 has always been recognized for. All four albums were recorded at The Haunted Ranch, Hank3’s home and studio that lies on the outskirts of Nashville.
Ghost to a Ghost/Guttertown, a double-album set, is a straight-shooting country collection, flavored with Hank3’s trademark hellbilly sound, and heavily weighted with Cajun influence (especially on Guttertown), an ambient, lonesome mood, and a few very special guests including the mythical Tom Waits, Alan King of Hellstomper, Les Claypool of Primus fame and beyond, Dave Sherman, Troy Medlin and Hank3’s dog, Trooper.
Two more releases are Attention Deficit Domination and 3 Bar Ranch Cattle Callin – intensely metal-driven records on which Hank3 performs every instrument. Attention Deficit Domination is a pressure-dropping, doom rock statement that has been anticipated by his hardcore fans for years, and Cattle Callin features Hank3’s speed metal woven in and around actual cattle auctioneering.
