Robert Jon & The Wreck, the high-energy rock & roll collective from Southern California, have been tirelessly pushing the boundaries of rock n’ roll, earning accolades and passionate fans in the process. These five men, with their unwavering commitment and passion, have etched their name in the annals of Southern Rock history.
Known for delivering raw, emotive sounds that capture the quintessential essence of Southern Rock, they are thrilled to unveil their latest single, “Stone Cold Killer,” produced by Kevin Shirley (Aerosmith, Black Crowes, Iron Maiden) out on Joe Bonamassa’s Journeyman Records. The accompanying music video is a playful departure from their previous visuals, as it marks the band’s first foray into animation. Directed and animated in striking black and white by Marco Pavone, the unique visual representation captures the song’s energy and depth as well as fun caricatures of each band member.
A teaser from their forthcoming album slated for release next year, “Stone Cold Killer” showcases the unique blend of rock, blues, and country that has garnered Robert Jon & The Wreck widespread acclaim. The single emerged organically from a rehearsal jam, and, as guitarist Henry James Schneekluth remarked, was recorded “without too much fuss and pretty minimal adjustments” at The Village Studios in Los Angeles with esteemed producer Kevin Shirley in April.
Prolific songwriters with a wealth of new material who refuse to be constrained by traditional release strategies, the band’s new partnership with Joe Bonamassa’s Journeyman Records affords them the opportunity to work with the world’s top producers and release a steady stream of high-quality singles on an ongoing basis, cutting through the industry chaos and ensuring new music is accessible to fans as intended.
