August 20, 2021 – Multi-platinum selling Canadian Country trio The Road Hammers are Back At It with their brand new EP, available for streaming everywhere today. Returning with the resurgence of the live music industry, the EP release marks a new chapter for The Road Hammers, who are bringing the raw energy of the new EP on the road for their legendary live show.
On the EP release, Jason McCoy shares,
“I think we all want to get ‘Back at It’ – back to travelling, new adventures and back to live shows! The new EP is classic Hammers with some new twists, packed with some surprise guest appearances.“
Back At It not only celebrates the band’s return, but the Canadian country community in which they’ve created their legacy. The album includes features from Meghan Patrick (“Hillbilly Disco”) and Tim Hicks (“Stay Wild”), in addition to their collaborative focus track “All My Friends” featuring fellow Canadian country acts, Terri Clark, Dan Davidson, Jason Blaine, and Aaron Pritchett, as well as rockers Cory Marks and Gordie Johnson. The trio is ready to “Give’r” on the stage as live music returns, and the EP’s radio single is a testament to the resilience of country music fans who have long awaited their return.
An undeniable staple in the genre, with over 25 million streams, five CCMA Awards and a Juno Award win; The Road Hammers are Jason McCoy, Clayton Bellamy and Chris Byrne. Forming in 2004, the country rock trio released their now certified Platinum, debut album the following year. The Road Hammers debuted at #1 on the Canadian country albums chart, won the Juno Award for Country Recording of the Year, and delivered four Top 10 singles at country radio, including “I’m A Road Hammer,” “East Bound and Down,” and “Girl on the Billboard”. The group signed with American record label Montage Music Group in 2007 and released the top 50 charting album Blood Sweat & Steel. Known for their energetic and highly entertaining live show, The Road Hammers have become international fan favourites, touring extensively, including runs in North American, Europe and Australia. Releasing six albums to date, with six Top 10 hits and nine Top 20 singles, including “Homegrown,” “Crazy About You,” and the certified Platinum “Mud,” the trio shows no signs of slowing down.
With more live dates to be announced and their Hammer Down Lager beer collaboration with Sawback Brewing Co. flowing all summer long, The Road Hammers are just getting started in a brand new era.
