The Reverend Horton Heat is revving up for a new album, Whole New Life, which will be out November 30 via Victory Records. (Pre-order.) He made this one in Dallas and with new pianist Matt Jordan and drummer Arjuna ‘RJ’ Contreras joining the the Rev (real name: Jim Heath) and longtime bassist Jimbo Wallace, giving this one a little more of a Little Richard/Jerry Lee Lewis vibe. You can hear that on Whole New Life‘s rollicking title track. “The line about ‘store bought clothes’ is borrowed from my grandmother,” Heath tells us of the song’s opening line. “You know, people in rural areas used to have to make their own clothes. So, having clothes that were bought in a store meant you really had ‘made it.’ I think in today’s world, we take many things for granted.” The video for “Whole New Life,” directed by Brian Raida, makes its premiere in this post and you can watch that below.

As usual, Reverend Horton Heat is on tour — “I’m afraid I’m on the Willie Nelson retirement program, which means I’ll never retire” — with dates starting in earnest in October that include a six-night run at Austin’s Continental Club. Starting in November, he’ll be on tour with Junior Brown, The Blasters and Big Sandy and there are NYC-area stops at Sony Hall on December 7 and Asbury Park’s Stone Pony on December 8. Tickets for both those show are on sale. There are 2019 dates too — all are listed below.
