Coming in hot for the final show of their second run of the pandemic in December 2021 and with an impressive new line up, Howlin Rain hit Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown California full of adrenalized confidence, deep grooves and their signature, expansive guitarmony-laden jams.
“Pioneertown was the last last show of the crazy year of 2021 and you can hear the 'whoosh' of energy and confidence, the extra drinks, the rules lifted in the high desert setting, the exhale of the finish line. I view Live from Pioneertown as the first big flag the new band has plunged into the moon to lay claim to the next step up the ever spiraling ladder of Howlin Rain’s creative journey.”
~ Ethan Miller (singer, guitarist, bandleader)
Captured on multi-track by Jon Ballard with additional room recording by legendary Long Beach taper D Man, Live from Pioneertown is likely Howlin Rain’s highest fidelity live album since 2014’s ‘Live Rain.’ This latest entry to the ‘Under the Wheels’ live series showcases songs from ‘The Dharma Wheel’ as well as two fan favorites from 2008’s ‘Magnificent Fiend.’
Available in a vinyl ‘handmade’ edition of 500, colored or black vinyl, all jackets screen-printed by Monolith Press and signed and numbered by Howlin Rain bandleader Ethan Miller, also available on CD and digital.
