Atlanta rock four-piece Brother Hawk have released the Big Trouble Sessions EP, the first release under their new label deal with Liars Club, the new label formed by Amigo the Devil and indie powerhouse Regime Music Group. To celebrate the release of the EP, Brother Hawk have also released a brand new video for their cover of Depeche Mode’s “In Your Room” online.
Brother Hawk guitarist/singer JB Brisendine commented, “‘The song ‘In Your Room’ was an idea our drummer Sean had. He sent it to the group chat and we all immediately saw the potential it had within what we do. I always wanted to do ‘Walking In My Shoes, but that seemed like a more obvious choice, and this deep cut really spoke to us at the time. ‘In Your Room’ is a very drum heavy song and I was excited to let Sean really shine on this one.”
At its core Brother Hawk is a family. Sitting at the head of the table is guitarist/singer JB Brisendine with his right-handkeyboardist/singer Nick Johns-Cooper beside him. The two met in elementary school, bonding over music and becoming lifelong friends ever since. Bassist James Fedigan joined the Brother Hawk family after playing with Brisendine in hardcore bands, forming a friendship and musical bond. Brother Hawk started as a way for the members to play without musical limitations, no preconceived genre, and just let the music channel through them like a vessel.
Brother Hawk burst onto the scene with their Love Songs EP and hit the scene drawing critical acclaim for their brand of Southern blues-rock with raging riffs and huge hooks.Playing shows with fellow Atlanta outfit Blackberry Smoke helped them earn a devoted core following, as they continued to win over massive audiences playing Atlanta’s infamous Tabernacle and Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium.
Big Trouble SessionsEP, which will also feature the band’s re-envisioning classic tracks from Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Type O Negative, along withtwo original songs “like Water” and “The Black Dog”.
Big Trouble SessionsBrother Hawk passionately and proudly paid homage to the original compositions but never confining themselves to the sonic limitations of their influences. The band’s powerful take on Alice in Chains’ pitch-black “Nutshell”, the band’s metal roots shine bright on their cover of goth metal classic “Love You To Death” by Type O Negative, and a surprisingly fresh performance of Soundgarden’s “Fell on Black Days” are chilling listening experiences. Somehow through the constraints of a re-interpretation, Brother Hawk’s southern roots shine through on Big Trouble Sessionsto make it a memorable, soulful and compelling collection of songs that live long after the last note rings through the speakers.
