Hank Williams III's Death Metal Band Sets Album Release and Tour

(Blabbermouth) Assjack, the death-metal metal band founded and fronted by Hank Williams III, will release their first album of fully authorized music August 4 via Curb Records.

Featuring tracks like "Redneck Ride", "Wasting Away" and "No Regrets", the self-titled album personifies the split in the psyche of the singer/guitarist/songwriter/producer who last year released the psych-country album "Damn Right, Rebel Proud". While they're two vastly different sonic experiences, both projects reflect the diverse musical interests of the self-professed "crazy f*** from Tennessee." "Nowadays, there's a whole group of people that love Waylon and David Allen Coe and love Pantera and Slayer there's a whole breed of them out there," says Hank III.

HIII will take both his "Damn" country band and Assjack out on the road beginning June 16 in Louisville, KY, with U.S. dates confirmed through July 15 in Knoxville, TN. - more on this story
