This weekend I started hearing rumblings about some possible big announcement from The V-Roys and my mind instantly went to “reunion!”. Now I’ve made it no secret on here that The V-Roys were, and remain one of my favorite bands. Matter of fact if my house was to burn down I think Just Add Ice would be a CD I would have to run back in the house to rescue despite the danger.
Well the announcement came early this morning, and while not a full reunion (yet) what we will get is a New Years Eve reunion show at the Bijou Theater in Knoxville, and a brand new compilation titled Sooner or Later featuring remaster versions of old songs and 5 unreleased songs due Sept. 27th. The unreleased songs are mostly covers, but also 2 Mic Harrison originals. View the track listing here
Watch this video…
Needless to say, very excited to hear these songs, and I am already making plans to attend that New Years Eve Show. Enjoy the remastered version of Sooner or Later below, and as a special treat, a true V-Roys rarity which is their cover of Roger Miller’s Long Time Leavin’ which was featured on a compilation called Cowpunks back in 1996.
