Country rebels The Outlaw Orchestra ride again and premiere the brand-new video for their single ‘Send Some Whiskey Home’ – a track that is rich in country rock and sweet slide guitar that demonstrates the boys flexing a more mature direction in songwriting and performance. The band have been a favourite among the HRH Family for some time now and blew us all away at HRH CROWS with their unique take on the southern-rock with a touch of country genre.
The song has come to serve as the band’s calling card for their country blues roots and their unrepentant tongue-in-cheek lyrics, affectionately homaging the women (and dogs) who allow them to maintain their musicians’ lifestyle. This is a heartfelt love song between man, dog and whiskey.
Taken from their recent, critically-acclaimed 10-track debut album ‘Pantomime Villains’, the single will be released on 22nd January 2021.
Reflecting on the origin and inspiration for ‘Send Some Whiskey Home”, the band admit that “The roots of this song can be traced back to Dave Roux spending yet another day watching back-to-back cartoons, with his dog (Ted) sat on the sofa.
“Dave’s good lady arrived home after a long day at work. Dave and Ted both looked at her and said ‘We’re starving: What’s for dinner?’
“She walked right on past them, sighed, looked back and said ‘I wish you loved me like that dog loves you!’ Dave looked at Ted, who was wagging his tail, and said “Pass me the guitar, boy, I feel a song coming on!”
