BOURBON CROW, the southern side project of Wednesday 13 and Rayen Belchere (former WEDNESDAY 13 bassist), recently shot a video for the song "Those Southern Times" from the band's forthcoming CD "Long Way To The Bottom" (Horror High, LLC).
Commented Wednesday 13: "The video process was quite easy. We knew that we wanted to get a video done, but had limited time as I leave for a 2 ½-month tour of the U.S., Japan and the U.K. this week. So Rayen just called up some friends and told them to come on out. The video is nothing more then showing our fans what our life is like in the Carolinas."
The video, which involves bonfires, machine guns, dynamite and good friends, should be completed in April to prior to the start of the first BOURBON CROW tour, which will launch in May.

"Long Way To The Bottom" was recorded at Hooverama studios in Charlotte, North Carolina. (This is the same location Wednesday 13 has used for the past 12 years to record his WEDNESDAY 13 and FRANKENSTEIN DRAG QUEENS FROM PLANET 13 releases.) A total of 13 songs were recorded for the CD, but only 10 of them will be used for the LP. The recording session was videotaped and the resulting footage may be included with the finished product as a bonus.
BOURBON CROW's touring line up will feature Roman Surman on lead guitar and current WEDNESDAY 13 bassist Nate Manor. A drummer has yet to be named.
Commented Wednesday 13: "I look forward to hitting the road with this project. We plan to do some dates in the States in April/May and then hopefully going overseas in the autumn. I look forward to playing live again with Rayen and putting together a new band to bring these songs to life. These songs are different from the last BOURBON CROW CD. We are not labeling this a country CD, but it's more of a 'southern' CD. Some of these songs will fit the country model while some may end up being more of a southern rock vibe. Some have the tongue-in-cheek vibe of the last CD, some are honest songs. It will be hard to categorize what genre this is, so we are calling it a southern CD."
