    Ex-MÖTLEY CRÜE Touring Drummer, SNOT's JAMIE MILLER Join Forces With BILLY RAY CYRUS - June 30, 2010
    BROTHER CLYDE is the new rock band started by country star Billy Ray Cyrus. The Los Angeles-based combo also features Samantha Maloney (MÖTLEY CRÜE, HOLE, EAGLES OF DEATH METAL) and guitarist Jamie Miller (drummer for THESTART, SNOT), within its ranks. The band will release its self-titled debut album on August 10 via Buena Vista Records/Fontana. The first single from BROTHER CLYDE, "Lately" (audio stream), is available now on iTunes.

    "I always loved rock 'n' roll," Cyrus says. "That was a heavy part of what I was as a young juvenile delinquent. I tried from my first album to rock like any other Southern rock band." Fate — and country music immortality — intervened, but for BROTHER CLYDE, he followed an oh-so-rock-and-roll dictum: No rules. No limits. No preconceptions.

    Cyrus not only produced the album, he co-wrote most of the songs, several with Morris Joseph Tancredi, a musician he met under unlikely of circumstances. Tancredi was his driver in Vancouver, B.C., during production of the 2009 film "Christmas in Canaan". Recalls Cyrus, "This kid asks me what I'm doing now musically. I played him the first song I had written for BROTHER CLYDE, "Crawl", and he says, 'I didn't know you did that. That's straight-up alternative rock.' Then he said, 'I have some stuff of my own you gotta hear."

    The first single from BROTHER CLYDE, "Lately", was written by Tancredi and is available now on iTunes. After a few acoustic grace notes, the song comes down hard with a broadsword of power chords and a lamentation about a faithless world. With its throaty harmonies, "Lie to Me" picks up on the theme, only writ small, tracing the lines of a ruined relationship. There's no let-up with "Waiting", a punishing rocker drawing from an emotional pool of deep sadness yet a will to survive. Cyrus digs even deeper on "Slip Away", "How Long" and "Crawl", the latter a rocker with echoes of JANE'S ADDICTION at its most furious.

    BROTHER CLYDE also features the irresistible track "The Right Time", an upbeat duet between Cyrus and a shockingly hard-rocking Dolly Parton. "Dolly she said she wanted to rock," remembers Cyrus, who had been working with Dolly on a film. "She came to my studio, brought homemade corn, mashed potatoes and a spread of country cooking. We ate, played guitar for an hour then she just kicked ass. She became like Tina Turner. You could tell she really wanted this."

    The album ends with JOHNNY CASH's "Walk the Line", recorded in 1998 with Cyrus and a lineup of all stars. "I was at a place in my life where I didn't fit in with all the hat acts Nashville had at the time," he says. "I just wanted to rock." So he assembled drummer Owen Hale, keyboardist Johnny Neil, bassist Allen Woody, guitarists Mike Estes and Ed King, and harmonica player Michael Jo Sagraves, and the rest is basement tape history. Literally. It was recorded live in Johnny Neil's basement.

    Re: Billy Ray Cyrus' new rock band "Brother Clyde"

    I love the comments on the actual music! :heheh:

    Anyway, not one to comment on something I haven't heard I actually played all three tracks. Not bad at all honestly! At first I thought he was taking the generic Daughtry route which would've still been solid but instead it became a heavier version of Southern Rock. I think Magic would dig this! Beware all music purist though: there is a small segment of rap rock in the single! :D Other than that you guys are safe and might actually dig it especially the Lie To Me track! :grinthumb

    Re: Billy Ray Cyrus' new rock band "Brother Clyde"

    Just brought myself to listen to the tracks.

    I previously haven't heard a damn thing from Billy Ray which I like, and Achy Breaky Heart ranks #1 for songs that make he want to throttle person next to me.

    And the verdict is......

    Perfect record for Billy Ray! He still hasn't shown me anything that makes me want to listen to him ever again! :eek:

    He's the only rock artist who's managed that feat. The only other bands I can't stand are electronic pop.

    Well, I lie, his son's band Metro Station joins the list actually.

    I dunno what it is. His voice is irritating, but no more irritating that some of my favourites (Dylan, Petty, Scott for example). But something about it just doesn't click. Every single one of his songs is either boring and uninspiring, or is so irritatingly catchy that it ruins your freakin' day.

    I think his songs may just lack emotion and passion. Yeah, that's what I'll go with.

    :heheh:

    You know me Soot. There's a small list of bands I can't help have a little bit of a jab at when they come up in conversation ;)

    Listened to it before, couldn't get past a minute of each song....

    Billy Ray gives ''Southern Rock'' a bad name.

    Is it small.

    You just notice it more because you tend to write the threads for half of them :oyea:
