Scattered Hamlet, the Honky tonk metal road warriors are pleased to announce a summer US tour to continue supporting their new album “Swamp Rebel Machine.” With strong critical praise from press and Billboard Heatseeker Chart status, the album has spawned the singles and videos for “Swamp Rebel Machine” and “White Trash” capturing the essence of the band’s unapologetic and unique style. The summer tour will feature a festival appearance at Wisconsin’s Rock Fest XVII. Scattered Hamlet will appear at RockfestJuly 14, 2017 along with Clutch, Tom Keifer, Texas Hippie Coalition and Avenged Sevenfold.
“Swamp Rebel Machine” is a culmination of the exact album the band wanted to release. According to frontman Adam Joad, “A lot of industry types wanted us to just recreate another generic radio rock band and that just wasn’t us.” He continued, “It was a risk and it paid off, the album did great and quite of few of the tunes ended up doing decent in a shit ton of radio markets… I’ve been saying it for years, people don’t like safe music, that’s never been what rock music is about.”
The honky tonk metal sound and attitude has been spreading with WCPW British professional wrestler, Dave Mastiff, now using the band’s tune “Shelter” as his intro music.
