Texas Hippie Coalition Tickets
Two members of rival bands, Big Dad Ritch and Jon Exall got together and decided to make a band of their own. After Randy Cooper joined in, they started to play and write music together. A rock band was slowly taking shape, shortly after, Texas Hippie Coalition emerged in 2004. Hailing from Denison Texas, they immediately started a tour to promote their music album, named ‘Pride of Texas’.
Texas Hippie Coalition believes it has introduced a new genre of music; Red Dirt Metal. Rather than merge in with mainstream music and be followers, they opted to start their own line of music. With drummer Gunnar Molton and guitarist Cord Pool the band was complete.
The inspiration for the music comes from life experiences and respect for rock ‘n’ roll. With influences from Pantera, Johnny Cash, Molly Hatchet and Lynyrd Skynyrd very visible, THC has thrown in a bit of Southern fried classic rock and a bit of Texan groove to produce something unique. Perfectly fitting the tough red neck image, the band has evolved to produce exceptional music . Texas Hippie Coalition tickets are a must buy for people who like Southern Rock music.
With their second album, ‘Rollin’ released in 2010 they received a fair bit of criticism for relying too heavily on the track ‘Pissed off and Mad About It’ to reach music charts across the country. However, their third album ‘Pacemaker’ set the motion in their favor. With diversity of music and lyrics to sustain the album throughout, they made something very refreshing. THC even attempted a ballad, ‘Think of me’, stating explicitly that it is the closest to a love song that they are ever going to be. The band refers to such songs as heart songs as they take the listener deeper into the music.
The title song, Pacemaker is named after the Colt revolver and Ritch said while writing the song "I thought, what would that gun say to people"? It gives the lyrics a new perspective to get listeners hooked on, something not seen very common in rock music.
They aim to capture the essence of the outlaw spirit, reaching out to those who still believe it exists today. THC want their fans to know that classic rock is still very much prevalent and they are carrying the torch. With their significant contribution the band has ensured that the style doesn’t fade away. "We want the people that love Molly Hatchet, ZZ Top, .38 Special, the Van Zandts and those bands that are growing older to know that somebody else out there is already waving the flag high," Ritch is reported to have said.
Rather than be just a spin off influenced from previous rock bands, the Texas Hippie Coalition has added their innovative touch to the songs. They have helped this particular music genre develop into something substantial. It can be safely said that with their album, Pacemaker, they have created the perfect guide to red dirt metal.
