There are a lot of hyphenated rock bands out there. You know the variations: electronic-rock, folk-rock, dance-rock, noise-rock, alt-rock, and on and on, until you can’t find your way out of the sub-genre rabbit hole. Down and Outlaws don’t need no hyphen. They’re completely comfortable being known as just a rock band. A rock band that plays rock n’ roll. It’s that simple. No hyphens necessary.
Their latest single, “I Don’t Care (I Don’t Care),” perfectly exemplifies that fact. Featuring a fist-pumping, singalong chorus, rumbling tom beat and a guitar solo to make Angus Young proud, it’s a chain-smoking, leather-clad, long-haired punk of a song looking to bring out the rebel in you.
A video is on its way as is an official release show at the Rickshaw Stop later this month presented by Our House. Don’t forget your leather jacket.
