Central California’s Moonshine Bandits have released their video for the track “Shine With Me” online at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=am9AmG5aQMM. The song is just a swig of what fans can expect from the Moonshine Bandits new album “Whiskey and Women", which hit stores this week on Suburban Noize Records. Fans excited to hear the Moonshine Bandits intoxicating new album can head over to AOL Music where the band is streaming the record in its entirety online at http://music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds/#/24 .
"’Shine With Me’ was inspired by Johnny Cash's ‘I've Been Everywhere’, as it tells a story of some of the types of fans and different places we have performed at,” commented Bird from Moonshine Bandits. “We wanted the video to be a mini documentary and a toast to all the people that support us. The video was filmed by Director Robert Brown and it brings you a backstage pass to some of the types of events we do."
Moonshine Bandits new album “Whiskey and Women" is the soundtrack to late nights in dive bars and truck stops. Moonshine Bandits brand of misfit country hip-hop is fueled by women, whiskey, and 4 wheel drives to create the bastard child of Johnny Cash and the Beastie Boys. “Whiskey and Women" features guest appearances by Danny Boone of Rehab, Big B, Dirtball & Daddy X from Kottonmouth Kings, and country superstar Colt Ford.
