On May 27th, Metal Blade Records will release SONGS FROM THE GARAGE (pre-order), the first album by comedian JIM BREUER and his backing band, THE LOUD & ROWDY. Earlier today, a new music video for “Thrash” hit my inbox, and essentially it’s what happens here at my house when my wife takes The Rock Daughters™ on an adventure that leaves me with a few hours of free time… the exception being that I crank the metal sans headphones. Check this out… I’m digging it!
“‘Thrash’ pretty much wraps up what this project and album represents! This song is for people that grew up with rock and hard rock who now have families, but still love to take the time to throw down & thrash!” — Jim Breuer
SONGS FROM THE GARAGE features special guests such as Brian Johnson (AC/DC) who provides vocals on two tracks and Rob Caggiano (Anthrax, Volbeat) who produced the record and provided guitar. Backing Breuer up is The Loud & Rowdy with Mike Tichy on drums and Joe Vigliotti on bass. The inspiration for all of this comes from Breuer’s adolescent immersion in the world of heavy music, falling in love with Judas Priest and AC/DC, alongside the likes of The Scorpions, Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, and Van Halen. The fire to start a band was soon lit under him, though he wouldn’t begin his musical career until he was older. Having finally made the album that has been burning to get out of him since his teens, Breuer couldn’t be happier with the result.
