For nearly 20 years, the Randy Rogers Band has been sticking to their guns and making sure their music reflects authenticity rather than chase commercial success. This fearlessness has bonded the men for life and led them to create a brand-new album, titled Hellbent.

Produced by GRAMMY-winner Dave Cobb, the project will feature 11 songs, each of which fuels the band’s long-lasting camaraderie.

“We’re in it for the long haul,” shared Rogers in a press release. “We’re lifers. This is obviously our way of life. This isn’t some Johnny-come-lately group of guys. We’re like an oak tree. We’re not going anywhere. We’re not hinged on whether our next single will be a No.1. We’re not hinged on an album topping the charts. We have a great and loyal fan base and we do things right. When we play our shows, people expect to have a great night and to go home satisfied. As long as we keep doing that, no change in the industry, no record deal or anything like that can make or break this band.”

Leading the project will be the band’s first single, “Crazy People,” which officially hits radio on February 15. The song gives an inside look at Rogers’ adolescent life.

“I used to be scared of neon signs at restaurants because it had been drilled in my head that people were drinking and therefore, they were crazy,” he explained. “We took the irony and had some fun with it.”

Fans can expect Hellbent when its released on April 26. The group will bring the music straight to fans when they embark on their Hellbent Tour, beginning March 29 in Helotes, TX and running through August.
