Backlash ultimately unfolds as an album both joyfully chaotic and intensely cathartic.
Recorded at Big Orange studios in the band's hometown of Austin, TX, Backlash finds Black Joe Lewis joining
forces with Grammy Award-winning producer Stuart Sikes (The White Stripes, Cat Power, Modest Mouse)
and revisiting his most deep-seated influences. "I wanted to go for more of a soul/blues/rock-and-roll sound
compared to the last one-the kind of stuff I was doing back in the day, but with the songwriting a little more
evolved," Lewis says. The band's most stylistically adventurous work so far, Backlash expands their sound by
bringing gritty guitar tones and Stax-styled horn sections to intricate, danceable arrangements inspired by
the likes of Nile Rodgers. Buy tickets online!
