"interstate 130" demo:
SELF PRODUCED, RECORDED and distributed. a FIVE SONG DEMO CD which was released DECEMBER 7TH, 2016. The cover depicts Interstate 35 north bound lower deck in austin texas. distribution for this demo was discontinued in february of 2018 during pre-production of "cubic dollars".
many people have asked about the album's title and artwork. up front is a 1939 master deluxe and the title "cubic dollars" comes from a phrase used often by john's grandfather, an avid racer from the 1950's "Wild Bill" was known to say "cubic inches are good, but cubic dollars always wins the day". This was obviously in reference to the cost of owning, operating and maintaining a winning competition vehicle. The phrase stuck in john's mind and makes an appearance in "supercharged". the art work though out the album continues the theme of mechanical rock and roll, from the front cover to the back the disc is beautifully detailed and sounds amazing! Pick up your copy today!
released, august 10, 2018 "cubic dollars" is the second disc from blacktop syndicate. the ep includes 5 tracks recorded and engineered at eclectica studios in austin tx by sound city alum tim Dolbear. The opening track is, "supercharged" a love story right out of an N.H.R.A. rule book. Next is "Kiss of Death" a beautiful story about a female killer stalking the bars in your town. "Love In The Back Seat" is a good old fashioned power ballad about getting caught loving in the backseat of a stolen car. "Dead Hookers Dont Lie" a fun upbeat song you can dance too! "TEN MILE WALK" A 40 ton URBAN LEGEND BROUGHT TO LIFE.
Blacktop Syndicate is an original, high energy heavy rock band from Austin Texas formed in march of 2016 with a dark sense of high octane humor and a passion for rock n roll. we are a great fit with all rock music sub-genera from classic rock, Thrash, rock-a-billy, punk, death, speed and of course, heavy metal. we provide engaging, memorable, fist pumping original songs and even a few overhauled classics.
They put on an awesome show! ***** kim b. -aug 19, 2018
This 5 member rock band with a female lead singer not only rocked, but their performance on stage is high energy. Very entertaining with a little raw humor! Original songs with a few classic covers thrown in that we all know and love. U won't forget this stage presence with this band! Must see live!!!
