Ever hear one of those canonical classic rock guitar solos and thought, “I wonder if that riff made the engineer laugh a little?” The dudes in Oil Boom crack up over that stuff all the time, and then they turn those jokes about Joe Perry hot lixx and Robert Plant blues-ball moans into songs. It’s classic rock deconstruction in the vein of Ween, or at least Weezer. Or, put another way: Oil Boom makes rock ‘n roll inspired by the all-time greats, but instead of worshipping at the church of St. Mick and St. Keef, they sleep in on Sunday (especially if they stayed up late listening to Sabbath).
Oil Boom is: Ryan Taylor (guitar/vocals), Steve Steward (bass/background vocals), Dugan Connors (drums/background vocals), Zach Edwards (guitar). The band’s 6-song debut EP Black Waxy was recorded in 2011 with Stuart Sikes (Loretta Lynn, The Walkmen), and quickly followed by Gold Yeller, their second color-themed, 6-song EP in 2012. Its lead single, “The Great American Shakedown” was added to the rotation of NPR stations and appeared on the soundtracks to The Vampire Diaries, If I Stay, Freeheld and Grandma. The band spent a couple years playing around Texas and the Midwest while working on songs for their next release, recording a full-length in 2014 called Red Metal. The album continued their streak of colorful titles and soundtrack success, with “45 Revolutions Per Minute”, “Delta Rice” and “Ball O’ Fire” placed in films/TV shows such as Manchester By The Sea, Rectify, Lucifer, and Elementary.
Since Red Metal‘s release, Oil Boom has spent the intervening years on the road with heavyweights like Social Distortion and the Toadies,and at home opening for Johnny Marr and The Hold Steady. Their highly anticipated upcoming full-length album Terribility is set to releaseonOctober 20, 2017. For more information, please visit: https://www.facebook.com/OilBoom.
