    All Hat And No Cattle (Awaiting Repress)

    All Hat and No Cattle follows the group's 2010 self-titled debut, which introduced the veteran Foo
    Fighter Chris Shiflett's skill for writing understated, infectious Americana-influenced rock songs. Firm believers that in order to know where you're going, you've got to know where you've been,
    Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants recorded All Hat and No Cattle with a mix of reverence and revelry. Featuring nine classic honky-tonk covers and one original, the album's playful enthusiasm is palpable throughout the faithful yet fresh interpretations; from the carousing opener Guitar Pickin' Man to the bluesier, doo-wop country of Happy Part Of Town to the apt, barnstorming closer Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way?


    While touring with Foo Fighters around their last album, Shiflett was inspired with the idea to learn
    an abundance of old school honky-tonk songs, and then hit the road as a cover band. After arriving
    back home, the Dead Peasants reconvened and spent months rehearsing before playing shows all through spring and summer 2012. Wanting to capture the spirit of these performances, the band headed into Studio 606 in Los Angeles to track a selection of Shiflett's favorites from their live set. The band recorded All Hat and No Cattle live and all together in one room, with only vocals and pedal steel overdubbed.

    Chris Shiflett And The Dead Peasants

    Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants is a new project from Shiflett, already known as the lead guitarist for Foo Fighters and the frontman for Jackson United. Steeped in his love for classic country artists (Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings), rockabilly (Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran), and deep-rooted rock bands (The Rolling Stones, The Replacements), this new album is packed with soulful pedal steeland twang guitar-accented songs. The album highlights his talent and versatility not only as a skillful guitarist, but also as a songwriter. These infectious Americana-laced rock songs are some of the best hes penned, from the chiming keys and buoyant, ringing guitars of Get Along to the pedal steel- and mandolin-lined heartache of Bandaged, and from the spry, Old 97s-ian Baby, Let It Out to the rueful country swing of Death March.


    Shiflett wrote the songs on Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants over the course of 2008-09, inspiration first striking when a friend asked him to perform at Orange Countys punk-rockabilly Hootenanny festival in 2008. After re-immersing himself in his Americana and old country music collection to prepare a short set and then playing a brief acoustic tour with friend Joey Cape of Lagwagon, he began writing what eventually became the new album. Recorded at the Foo Fighters Studio 606 in Los Angeles, CA, this past December and January, the core band on Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants is Shiflett (vocals, guitar), 606 house engineer John Lousteau (drums, in addition to engineering), and Derek Silverman (keyboards). The albums additional instrumentation was performed by an array of fine musicians, including Davey Faragher (Elvis Costello and The Imposters, Jenny Lewis, John Hiatt) on bass, Greg Leisz (Wilco, Lucinda Williams, Whiskeytown) on pedal steel, Stevie Blacke (Beck, Weezer, Colbie Caillat) on violin and mandolin, and Audra Mae on backing vocals.
