Austin, TX-based power punk band Riverboat Gamblers has announced the vinyl reissue of their 2003 album Something To Crow About. While the release was the five piece band’s sophomore album, it was really their last to be released without external expectations. The primal punk and raw rock n roll energy encased within would end up being the definitive characteristic of the Gambler’s sound for their career. The pressing (a Cobraside Exclusive Release) is available in three limited edition variants – slate gray, white, and black.
Songwriter and guitarist Fadi El-Assad had the following to say about the album:
“I was undeniably invested in this record and had the high hopes of perfection that only youth can offer. It isn’t perfect. It isn’t even close. It is riddled with flubs, pockmarks, and last minute changes. The only perfection found in it is the mirror reflection of a young, pockmarked, and unprofessional band. It was frantic, frustrating, joyful, and chaotic. I felt alive hearing the messy grit of the final mix. And I love every beat of it.”
Alongside this announcement. the band has also released a new video for “Rattle Me Bones” that captures behind-the-scenes photos and videos of the song being performed over the years. Check that out below and order your copy of the vinyl re-issue of Something To Crow About today!
