Barn Burner announces “Bangers II: Scum of the Earth”

Barn Burner announces “Bangers II: Scum of the Earth”; new track posted

Set to embark on tour with 3 Inches of Blood and Cancer Bats

With the volume, technicality and intensity that embodies heavy metal and the overarching catchiness and longevity of stoner and classic rock, Barn Burner capture a signature sound that cannot be easily placed or categorized. Cultivating the principles of partying and the everlasting might of the riff, Barn Burner creates a live atmosphere that render an audience incapable of standing still. Whether it is giving your best friend a well-deserved swill of beer or lovingly smashing the bottle over his head to the sound of a ruthless riff, Barn Burner will fulfill the demands of its listeners. Having finished their second record and follow up to the critically acclaimed Bangers, Barn Burner are prepared to unleash something more fierce.

The upcoming release of their second full-length record, entitled Bangers II: Scum of the Earth, sawBarn Burner teaming up with producer/engineer Adrian Popovich once again (Tricky Woo, Priestess, Sam Roberts, The Dears, and Sebastian Grainger) to create a truly original heavy metal record. While maintaining some of the core aspects of their previous record, Barn Burner have captured something more intense, taking steps to create an album more dynamic then their last. Having already toured Canada, the U.S. and Europe with the likes of Priestess, Bison B.C., and 3 inches of Blood, Barn Burner intend to continue its war path in support of the Metal Blade release of Bangers II.

Vocalist/guitarist Kevin Keegan tells us “we will be hitting the road with 3 inches of Blood and Cancer Bats in May in Canada so look forward to us bothering you for a place to stay on our way across Canada with a couple of the most killer bands this country has to offer. Let’s party!”

“This music is all about the swagger, and the foursome carries themselves like the 1976-77 Habs: they will own you, plain and simple, no matter how hung over they are from the night before.” Decibel Magazine

“huge groovy riffs that would make Phil Lynott proud.”


“the band is electrifying, and whether you are in the mood to headbang or not, they inject something into your bloodstream that renders you incapable of resisting the overpowering urge.” Outburn Magazine
