Legendary Shack Shakers have posted their first music video from their upcoming album, "The Southern Surreal" on Noisey: Music by Vice! "Mud" is the first track to be released from the album, and vocalist JD Wilkes had this to say:
"Mud" is an anthem for good ole "Whiskey Dick", the train that once served as the drunkard's shuttle to the "wet" counties of Kentucky.
Characters abound along the way; from a clown named "Spoons" to a "Dixie Witch with a mud yurt in a ditch." (I always wanted to sneak the word "yurt" into a song.)
Check out the new video below, and be sure to pick up a copy of The Southern Surreal from Alternative Tentacles on September 11, 2015!

07/02/15: ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES WELCOMES THE LEGENDARY SHACK SHAKERS
Alternative Tentacles is proud to announce that the infamous, explosive Southern wrecking crew The Legendary Shack Shakers are set to release their brand new album, titled The Southern Surreal, on September 11, 2015 via Alternative Tentacles Recordings. Their first release in five years, the album lands on the band's 20th anniversary, and is their Alternative Tentacles debut. In conjunction with the album release, Legendary Shack Shakers will tour across much of the United States and Europe this Fall.
The band's incendiary interpretations of the blues, punk, rock and country are all-at-once irreverent, revisionist, dangerous, and fun. Built upon a haunting, Southern Gothic theme, The Southern Surreal is a 15-track set featuring regular band members Colonel JD Wilkes (vocals, harmonica, banjo), Rod Hamdallah (electric guitar), Mark Robertson (electric and upright bass) and Brett Whitacre (drums), with guest appearances by actor/musician and long time Shack Shakers fan, Billy Bob Thornton, and Jesus Lizard guitarist Duane Denison.
