Italy's TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY has inked a deal with Agonia Records. The band's debut album, "Ruralizer", will be released in the fall.Commented the group: "We're very proud of how the album came out and we strongly believe it's the perfect way to begin our legacy. People into heavy, ballsy southern-tinged hard rock should take note!" According to a press release, TOMBSTONE HIGHWAY "emerges from the muddy shores of the Po River in Piacenza and draws strong inspiration from the rural and folklore parts of its homeland. Their upcoming debut album is a classic blend of feisty stoner/southern rock and doom metal, with catchy guitar solos and old-school heavy metal parts that may remind of LYNYRD SKYNYRD, CORRISON OF CONFORMITY, PRIDE AND GLORY, DOWN, BLACK SABBATH, or even ZZ TOP riffage. Apart from hard rock instruments, the band uses also a banjo and Hammond organs."
