For over 20 years, Louisiana Music Hall of Famer Bill "Diamond" Davis has made his band Dash Rip Rock Louisiana's edgiest cultural export.

This album brings classic Dash back home with it's straightforward songwriting, authentic roots, and raw talent honed by years of touring - the future of Southern Rock here today.
Bill Davis on "Black Liquor":
"I played the best guitar of my life on this album. That includes all live and studio performances ever. The reasons are obvious: it was the history and vibe of the room, the amazing vintage equipment, and working with a producer that knows my capabilities. We had a lot of fun recording out at Studio in the Country. We doubled tracked the drums then got crazy and triple tracked them. The entire band is at the top of their game from frequent touring. And this is the longest I've ever spent writing and recording a record. I also pulled a few never-recorded gems out of the Dash demo vault for this one."
"What lifts Dash Rip Rock's album a head above most southern rock is Davis's ability to write songs that do more than sell beer on a Saturday night."
- Washington Post
"Their roots sound's supercharged with energy and an overdose of irreverence, delivered with crunchy bar band swagger."
