BB Live: July Resident Band: Down and Outlaws: Week 3

Is it really already week 3 with Down and Outlaws?! Damn. Well, that means this the the last track we get with ’em (boo), but they saved one of my personal favorites for last. This week the gents perform “Backwards from the Dead” another heavy track with the addition of some killer harmonica.

“You can’t quite be what you want to,
You can’t quite seem to breathe.
There’s a madman stuck inside you,
Looking for the dead to be…”

Let loose your inner madman (or madwoman) and crank this one up! Also, pick up their new album Above Snakes now! Oh, and LA, you can catch these guys on THIS FRIDAY at The Hi Hat, with another Badass Band, The Diamond Light! 9pm.

I’ll fix your wings, I’ll stick around. You’re the best part of this world that I’ve found.” And hell, Aaron’s sweet ass guitar solo and Octavio’s moves during the climax don’t hurt either. Get hip to this rock n roll gem below!
