Reckless Kelly Release GOD FORSAKEN TOWN (LIVE) From New Album

On June 21, the Austin, TX-based country rock band Reckless Kelly will release Bulletproof Live via Thirty Tigers. The album is a live recording of their seminal album Bulletproof captured in July and August of 2018 in celebration of the record's tenth anniversary. Today, Taste of Country premiered "God Forsaken Town (Live)," the third and final single to be released from their forthcoming album.

Pre-order Bulletproof Live

Willy Braun, speaking on the song's creation, said, "Robert Earl Keen and I wrote 'God Forsaken Town' for our friends in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and the resilience of the people who call 'The Crescent City' home."

Bulletproof Live was recorded in the summer of 2018 during a west coast tour where the band was celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the release of Bulletproof. The band took the best takes, hand picked from their favorite shows and curated them for this new album.

Excitement for Bulletproof Live has been building steadily with coverage from Rolling Stone, Wide Open Country, The Boot, and more.

"Some artists might have wanted to do a bunch of overdubs, and 'fix' the whole thing," said Willy Braun. "We Decided not to do that, and make it a true live album, both for the sake of posterity and out of honesty. What's the point of a live record otherwise? Live music is best served on the brink of disaster. Sure, there are a few sharp notes and a clunker or two here and there, but that's what happens in a live setting and what we have here- just six guys that have been playing music together for a long time, a hell of a good road crew and some truly great crowds. There are no studio tricks and no pitch correction, We wanted it to be real honest and real live-bootleg style."

The band has also been hard at work on their anticipated follow up to their 9th studio album Sunset Motel, which debuted at #12 on the Billboard Americana/Folk Albums Chart, hit #1 on the Texas Regional Radio Report Chart and #7 on the Americana Radio Chart. The album was embraced by Billboard, Rolling Stone Country and many more.

Reckless Kelly are currently in the midst of a national tour, with more tour dates to be announced later this year. The band will host their annual Braun Brothers Reunion festival in Challis, ID on August 8-10. Find a full list of tour dates below and on the band's website.
