BROTHER DEGE CURRENTLY ON MAJOR EUROPEAN TOUR / U.S. SUMMER TOUR DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON

The Deep South’s forgotten son comes banging out of the gates with his third album under the Brother Dege moniker, Scorched Earth Policy: Deluxe, morphing his signature Delta, sonic-slide sound (as heard in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained official soundtrack) into the psyouthern, psych swamp sphere. Joined by his touring band, The Brethren, Brother Dege & Co. push these 12 tracks into rural cinematic realms, adding their post-millennial update to the southern rock & roll lexicon.

Following his two previous acclaimed solo efforts (2009’s Folk Songs Of The American Longhair & 2013’s How To Kill A Horse) Brother Dege released a unique 19-track digital-only “summer mixtape” last year entitled Scorched Earth Policy, featuring a mix of newly recorded studio songs, demos, covers and field recordings. Now Dege has updated it into a more cohesive studio album, Scorched Earth Policy: Deluxe paring down some of the rougher demos and field recordings and has added four new studio tracks to it. This is the first time any of these 12 songs will be available on CD.

Brother Dege’s Scorched Earth Policy: Deluxe will be available July 24, 2015 on CD and digital formats.

HERE’S WHAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING ABOUT BROTHER DEGE:

“Frankly, every track on the Brother Dege CD could have been in the movie [Django Unchained]. It works and has a badass score sound to it. Almost every song could be a theme song. It’s like a greatest hits album. But this song ‘Too Old to Die Young’… it’s pretty damn badass. And it’s used in the movie in a pretty damn badass way, I’ve got to say.” – QUENTIN TARANTINO

“Fans of slide guitar, Southern gothic, or plain old rock & roll attitude need to run, not walk, and check out Brother Dege ASAP. Brother Dege is a case study in how one guy with a steel guitar and minimal accompaniment can out-rock a roomful of electric bombast, given the right songs, the right skills, and the right voice. Brother Dege has‘em all.” – POPMATTERS

“[Four Stars] In lesser hands all this might easily sound contrived, but instead it’s genuinely powerful and compelling stuff. ‘The Girl Who Wept Stones’ and ‘Dead & Gone’ might have been ripped from the Son House songbook, though the seven-minute epic ‘House of the Dying Sun’ is the real keeper.” – UNCUT

“Both ancient and modern, like an indie rock cover of something Lomax may have recorded a hundred years ago.” – BLOGCRITICS

“… an updated perspective of the age-old Delta blues.” – OFFBEAT MAGAZINE

“Brother Dege brings the ghosts of kudzu-covered swamp rats to life in your speakers.  Find the darkest spot in your backyard, light some candles and turn it up.” – THE BIG TAKEOVER

“… in the slide guitar Delta blues tradition, but with Legg’s own twist.” – CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE
