Rat Rod~Rock Recording Artists Special Guest On 8/8/2023
Philadelphia based, classic hard rock influenced quintet RAT ROD have released the single, “Call Down the Thunder” from their upcoming full-length album, Four on the Floor.
"Call Down the Thunder" is a sequel to a song off of previous album, ‘Light ‘Em Up’ entitled "Peacemaker (Ballad of Tombstone)" which was inspired by the bar scene between Kurt's Russell (Wyatt Earp) and Billy Bob Thornton (Johnny Tyler) in the movie "Tombstone".
"Call Down the Thunder" takes the viewpoint of Wyatt Earp and his desire for vengeance in response to his brothers being ambushed with Virgil injured and Morgan killed. The raw emotion is characterized by this line in the song: "every bullet in my gun has got a cowboys name..." Cowboy referring to the offending outlaw gang known as the "Cowboys."
