Across The Aisle Music Presents The Surreal McCoys and Bottle Rocks at AmericanaFest in Nashville September 17th

“When the Surreal McCoys come together and start howling & growling, they morph into a singular 3-car garage monster that will rip you into pieces if you don’t sign on to their fun.”—Producer, Eric "Roscoe" Ambel


 Across The Aisle Music & Rev The Vote Present:


The Surreal McCoys and Bottle Rockets at AmericanaFest in Nashville
Thursday, September 17, 2015 from noon-2pm @ Dan McGuinnes Pub 

The Surreal McCoys are a “Johnny Clash” roots rock outfit of hardcore troubadours with one foot in the garage and the other on a roadhouse barstool. Their songs recall an era of lesser hygiene but greater guitar riffs, and come wafting through the car radio static of some far-off station as the band careens down the lost musical highway that connects the odd-numbered Hank Williamses to The Replacements.


Their new album, The Howl & The Growl (release date: Friday 9/18) was recorded and produced in Williamsburg Brooklyn by legendary rock and alt-country Producer, Eric Ambel (The Del-Lords, The Bottle Rockets, Steve Earle, Ryan Adams,) The Howl & Growl will be released September 18th by Washington, DC label, Across the Aisle Music on most digital distribution platforms, including iTunes, Amazon, Pandora, Spotify, and your finer truck stops. In conjunction with the launch, the band will play an official Americana Music Association luncheon showcase Friday, September 17th with veteran roots rockers The Bottle Rockets in one of their only 2015 AmericanaFest appearances. Both have new albums hitting the street which were produced by Eric “Roscoe” Ambel.


The video for the feature track “Turn & Run,” has just premiered exclusively on Americana Music Online Magazine Turnstyled Junkpiled   and went on to make video of the day at the blog



“The Surreal McCoys are a unique blend of pretty much any musical styling that is cool—nods to The Stones, The Clash, Johnny Cash—and all performed with energy and a whimsical middle finger held high. Best played extremely loud, and with at least two tequilas already in the bloodstream.”—Billy Morrison, guitarist—(Billy Idol, Royal Machines)




Across the Aisle Music is a startup music distribution and events venture founded by DC influencers Doug Davenport and Erik Huey in conjunction with 30 year music industry veterans Jonathan Platt and Jonathan McHugh, who have worked with artists Sheryl Crowe, Metallica, Blues Traveler, Tommy Lee, Mystical and many more. They believe that music can cross divides—political, cultural and geographic—to unite people together in soul-affirming ways.


Rev the Vote’s vision is to inform Nascar and motorsport fans about the critical role they can have in our political process and turn their focus from the pole at the track to the polls on election day. For More Information:
