FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

The Alabama rockers known as the Lonesome Snakes have released their new LP record, titled, “Three Minutes and a Cloud of Dust.” The album is comprised of 17 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of one hour, making for a definitive introduction to this highly respected band for listeners not yet acquainted. It has been released on the Praco Publishing music records label. A record with deep, deep roots in the classic traditions of rock 'n' roll and southern folk music, “Three Minutes and a Cloud of Dust” showcases the genuine American sound with clear authority, flawless taste, and bottomless heart and soul.

Upon being asked, “How did you start getting involved in music?” Lonesome Snakes songwriter Craig Izard writes back simply, “Born with that beat in my bones.”

This is a fine analogy for the general tone of Lonesome Snakes music. Their sound is raw, direct, streamlined and no-nonsense. It is characterized by the same mid-western earnestness that flowed through the first rockers to ever play the sound. The Snakes cite as main artistic influences such artists as Elvis Presley, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Howling Wolf, Bob Dylan, and Robert Johnson. An amalgam of these musicians pared down to a straightforward, southern rock trio would sound very much like the Lonesome Snakes, who hail from Birmingham.

Songwriting forms much of the strength of “Three Minutes and a Cloud of Dust.” Their songs bear titles such as, “I'll Wait Till later to Kill You” and “Southern Bottlerockets,” and wind out arresting narratives that carry the old art of folk storytelling into the modern age. Their songs are often optimistic in sound at their most melancholy in meaning, and the theme of pain and pleasure as natural components in life recurs often. Fellow snakes Hunter Bolton and John McNutt take active roles in the composition of Lonesome's music, also.

The Lonesome Snakes were recognized for their pioneering performances and recordings in the 2011 Southern Music Issue of the Oxford American, which celebrated the oft-overlooked musical hotbed of Alabama.

“Three Minutes and a Cloud of Dust” by the Lonesome Snakes is available online worldwide.
