Laugh And Cry With The New Reverend Horton Heat Album--And Stream It For Free.

Get ready to have another "Psychobilly Freakout," folks: Laughin' & Cryin', the Reverend Horton Heat's first non-holiday album since 2004's Revival, is due out Tuesday, September 1.

Actually, the album isn't so much a psychobilly freakout as it is a countrified detour from the punk-tinged rockabilly that the Rev has been preaching for more than 20 years. According to the press release, he started noticing that his humorous songs got the biggest reactions at his live shows. So he decided to make a whole album of 'em. Topics include crazy ex-boyfriends, taking the baby to the liquor store and an explanation to Hollywood types that there ain't no saguaro catctus in Texas.

But you don't have to wait until next month to hear it. Thanks to James Bailey at Yep Roc, the Reverend Horton Heat's label, DC9 readers can stream the entire album for free! Crack open a beer, crank up the volume and follow the jump.
