New music video for 'Years Pass By' - new album set for release 12/11/15!
The Low Counts...Blue Collar Rock-n-Roll Duo
"...sounds like Black Sabbath meets T-Model Ford" - The Low Counts are a Rock-n-Roll guitar-drum duo. The Low Counts' original music is a hodge podge of the all of the music that influences Matt Walsh and Austin Hicks the most, finding them, effortlessly combining early 40's and 50's Mississippi/Urban/Piedmont Blues, 50's Sun Records styled Rock/Rockabilly, 60's Garage Rock, 70's Stoner Rock, Psychedelia, old Country, Stax Soul, Hip-Hop or whatever else they can find to throw in the pot. As long as it comes out of the mash-up sounding original, real, fresh and if it rocks, it gets the stamp of approval. This duo isn't easy to categorize, but one thing anyone could agree on is that whatever comes out of it, it's always no-nonsense, raw, energetic, primal and coming from many music avenues at once, weaving them into one unique sound.
Grimtale Records released the Low Counts EP, 'Never Enough Time' (GRIM019) on 45 vinyl in May 2015. The release was limited to 100 pressings and may still be available at www.grimtalerecords.com There are a few left for sale at LC shows as well. If you don't buy records or miss out you can download the songs on the EP via our Music/Merch page now.
Last week we began recording our second full length album, one more day of recording and it's done (we will have worked on it five days total). We are very excited about this recording and think it dwarfs our debut album and even our latest EP. You'll find that our band has grown with this album, we're still having a lot of fun and these new songs reflect that. The songs find us exploring new territories, influences and sounds. The first single will released in November (most likely with a new video) and then the new album will drop December 11th with a release party that night at the Grey Eagle in Asheville, NC (Rockabilly band, the Parodi Kings opening). Pre-sale tickets are now available thru this link ($7 advance/$10 door):
We're absolutely stoked that our original song, 'Cut Me Out' is featured in Wilmington, NC filmmaker Fred Ireland's upcoming film, 'Make Him Talk'. This is the first time of hopefully many, that our music has been featured in a film!
