(alleyesmedia) Samantha Fish and country outlaw Jesse Dayton reveal the fierce new track "Riders" from their upcoming effort, Death Wish Blues, out May 19th on Rounder Records. "Riders" finds the duo interchanging commanding vocals while building a ferociously groove-heavy rhythm.

Describing the song, Fish says, "'Riders' is about being musicians and troubadours and having one-night stands with whatever city you happen to be in. Every city is personified as a love interest or partner, and in the end you just move on to whatever adventure is coming up next." Follow Fish and Dayton down the road in the gritty "Riders" video.

Garden & Gun recently featured Fish in their "New Guitar Greats" roundup, alongside Marcus King, Billy Strings and other top players. Garden & Gun writer Jim Beaugez noted, "On Faster, her 2021 Rounder Records release, she worked with producer Martin Kierszenbaum (Lady Gaga) to create a set of spunky, pop-focused cuts, and her latest - Death Wish Blues, a collaboration with outlaw country figure Jesse Dayton - channels those same impulses through a fuzz box with the grit set to eleven."

Death Wish Blues showcases the raw power of Fish and Dayton's guitar playing, both with foundations grounded in blues music. Aided by Jon Spencer's production, they push the limits by seamlessly merging their strengths into an album of songs with both swagger and bravado, as well as emotion and sensitivity. The result is a raw combination of blistering blues, deep soul, punk, funk, and good old rock-and-roll.

Fish and Dayton are gearing up for a round of tour dates to support Death Wish Blues, including the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival on April 29th. A full list of tour dates is below.

Hailing from Kansas City, MO, Samantha Fish is one of the most dynamic blues forces in the world today, headlining festivals and captivating audiences with her guitar prowess and power vocals. An award-winner and road warrior, she performs 200 shows yearly, both domestically and abroad. Death Wish Blues is her 7th album.
