MAYLENE AND THE SONS OF DISASTER




The Barker-Karpis Gang were gun-toting outlaws robbing as they pleased. As a child, Dallas Taylor would accompany his grandfather to the small Florida town of Ocklawaha to watch annual reenactments of the FBI shootout that ended the illustrious career of this early 20th century crime family, allegedly led by Kate "Ma" Barker, in a hail of bullets.

Which makes it fitting that as an adult, Dallas Taylor would lead a band of musical outlaws who rob and steal the best parts of heavy metal, punk rock, down-home classic rock n' roll and bluegrass and reshape it in their own image with the true-life morality tale of Maylene and the Sons Of Disaster as their backdrop, muse and namesake.

On the Birmingham, Alabama boys' third album, III -- the band pushed the envelope even further, broadening the scope of the impressive repertoire firmly established on their eponymous debut and 2007's II (which produced the MTV2 Headbanger's Ball staple "Dry The River”)

Maylene and the Sons of Disaster are currently in the studio recording their as-yet-untitled fourth album. Upon the new albums creation, Dallas and his newest posse will be touring relentlessly through 2011 and beyond. You have been warned, as it is almost certain these boys will be plowing and pillaging a village near you.
