Shooter Jennings Black Ribbons Revisited
"Black Ribbons" is a "concept" album which represents a true paradigm shift for the mercurial musician.
Jennings is currently prepping a brand new recording which will be released on 429 Records later this year.
The progeny of country music outlier legends Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, Shooter Jennings has leapt out of the comfort zone of country music on "Black Ribbons" for an ambitious leap into a fierce, blistering musical journey through the darker corners of human society.
With the narrative help of Stephen King—a true icon of pitch black literary themes, Shooter Jennings and his band (the 357's renamed Hierophant for this outing) have created a magnum opus which rails against the inhumane aspects of an ever technologically obsessed society.
