Jim Breuer and the Loud & Rowdy Release
Debut LP Songs From The Garage
Jim Breuer has released his first musical full-length, Songs From The Garage, via Metal Blade Records. The accomplished comedian understands that comedy and heavy music have long made for great bedfellows and delivers both in his inimitable style accompanied by longtime backing band The Loud & Rowdy. With the support of special guests such as Brian Johnson (AC/DC) who provides vocals on two tracks and producer/guitarist Rob Caggiano (Anthrax, Volbeat), Breuer has created a record that is pure, unadulterated fun while remaining true to his rock sensibilities.
Breuer set out to make, most importantly, solid heavy rock while maintaining a balance of comedy. He does just that, from crunchy opening romp “Thrash” through the swaggering “Who’s Better Than Us?!” to the gloriously deranged excitement suffusing “Sugar Rush”, his exuberance is infectious, and he challenges you to keep your ass from shaking and the corners of your mouth twitching while it thunders from the speakers.
Backing Breuer up is The Loud & Rowdy with Mike Tichy on rhythm guitar, Eric Cohen on drums, and Metal Mike on lead guitar. After finding themselves on massive festival stages, the band headed into three different studios to record – Metrosonic Studios Brooklyn, Clear Track Studios, and Sonic Debris Recording Studio. With Caggiano on production and guitar duties, the album was filled with eleven musically badass tracks featuring lyrics that are not only funny but also relatable, reflecting Breuer’s position in life: “A dad with three kids who loves family life yet is still a metalhead at heart.”
