iTunes Review

Loud, proud and ferocious, Jason & The Scorchers come roaring back into the limelight with Halcyon Times. Singer/guitarist Jason Ringenberg and lead guitarist Warner Hodges pack this seminal group’s first album in 14 years with strong new songs and aggressive attitude. Newly recruited drummer Pontus Snibb and bassist Al Collins inject extra octane into such hellacious tracks as “Mona Lee,” “Gettin’ Nowhere Fast” and “We’ve Got it Goin’ On.” As a vocalist, Ringenberg dives into upbeat tunes like “Fear Not Gear Rot” and “Better Than This” with plenty of snarl and swagger. Just as importantly, he delivers such folk-rooted working man’s narratives as “Mother of Greed” and “Beat On the Mountain” with populist conviction. For his part, Hodges unleashes some of the most visceral axework he’s mustered in decades, particularly on the acoustic/electric track “Land of the Free.” “Twang Town Blues” stands out as a moody slice of prime Southern rock. Throughout, Jason and the Scorchers reaffirm the wild-eyed energy of their early work while making a case for their contemporary relevance.

Customer Reviews

This band still has it

After a fairly long hiatus and the addition of two new members, Jason and Warner are back with the kind of album that made them legendary in the first place. Moonshine Guy has great lyrics, Mona Lee rocks out, Golden Days brings me back to the glory fays of vinyl and Twang Town tells a cool Jason style story. Dan Baird also contributes throughout and adds vocals on When Did It Get So Easy. Very solid throughout. All is well in the world when these boys are doin their thing.

Good as ever!

Amazing rock guitar to match great lyrics/songwriting. HalcyonTimes does not disappoint. My favorites starting out are Land of the Free, Deep Holy Water, and Beat on the Mountain but the whole album is money well spent. Thank God for Jason & the Scorchers!

Album of The Year!

This is an AMAZING band! The album is just great start to freakin' finish! Can't remember the last time I could say that about an album! I've been listening to these guys since I was in Art School in the mid '8o's in Nashville. Like a fine wine they have returned with a hearty, robust album of incredible songs. This is more like the raw sound they had in the early days when they used to blow the roof off the Exit/In. The production is clean but not so clean to reduce Jason's country sneer and Warner's melt your face off Tele twang. Even when they slow it down on a couple of songs like "Beat on the Mountain" or "Mother of Greed", they sing it like they mean it and as if they lived it. Rock, Cow-Punk, Punk-abilly, Americana call it what you's just Nashville's best doing what they do better than anybody...ROCK.


Formed: 1981 in Nashville, TN

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

A country/hard rock band formed by Illinois native Jason Ringenberg in 1981, Jason & the Scorchers came careening onto the indie rock scene seemingly out of nowhere (truth was, it was Nashville) with a debut EP whose most killer track (among a slew of killer tracks) was a fire-breathing cover of Bob Dylan's "Absolutely Sweet Marie." This amalgam of speedy hard rock fused with Ringenberg's decidedly country twang, along with the band's ability to deftly negotiate between Rolling Stones-style stomps...
