Jackyl celebrate 25 years of Southern rock this summer with a promise from frontman Jesse James Dupree that the band is in no mood to slow down anytime soon.
Mighty Loud Records will release 25 on July 28 – a compilation including all of the hits and two previously unreleased tracks.
The band’s cover of Black Oak Arkansas’ Hot And Nasty makes the cut and Dupree said: “At the time we first hit the scene we were told by quite a few interviewers and fans that we sounded like a cross between Black Oak Arkansas and AC/DC.
“While we was very familiar with AC/DC, we were not with BOA. We went back and listened and were blown away – so much so that we recorded a cover of one of their most kick ass tunes.
“And Hot And Nasty is now finally getting its release on this compilation.”
The 18-track set includes Down On Me, The Lumberjack, Push Comes To Shove and Favorite Sin.
And the Best Of takes fans full circle from Jackyl’s 1992 self-titled debut through to 2016’s Rowyco.
“With this compilation we are celebrating 25 years of Jackyl rock n’ roll – the fundamentals of rock n roll,” added Dupree. “And beware – we are not slowing down anytime soon.”
