Whether it be on the banks of the Mississippi River or deep in the heart of the English countryside, rock ‘n‘ roll lives, breathes, and burns on the outskirts. Hailing from Rome, GA, at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, The Georgia Thunderbolts rise up with a scorching signature style steeped in soulful southern swagger. On, Can We Get A Witness, their full-length debut for Mascot Records, the quintet—TJ Lyle [vocals, harp, piano], Riley Couzzourt [guitar][guitar], Zach Everett [bass, keys], and Bristol Perry [drums]—conjure a tried-and-true spirit through a fresh fire. The line-up of The Georgia Thunderbolts officially cemented when they were still in high school. They shared a wide swath of inspirations, ranging from southern gospel to Hank Williams, Jr., Neil Young, Little Feat, Waylon Jennings, Ray Charles, Merle Haggard to the hard rock of Ozzy Osbourne, Audioslave, Bad Company and of course, Lynyrd Skynyrd. "Got a full tank of gas, and I‘m headed down the road, no money in my pocket, destination still unknown," they sing on the album opener "Take It Slow," setting the tone for the album. The Georgia Thunderbolts embody the blue-collar working man who has put their foot down on the accelerator towards the rock ‘n roll American dream.
"Can We Get A Witness" will be released on CD and digitally via Mascot Records on October 15, 2021, with a vinyl release expected to follow on November 26, 2021.
