A decade is certainly a long time to have to wait for anything—it’s an especially excruciating period to wait for a sophomore release from a band you love. The Baptist Generals released the very excellent, critically acclaimed No Silver / No Gold in 2003 and we waited (and waited) for a follow-up. Rumors flew, time passed, legend became myth, and then one day, music came in. Jackleg Devotional to the Heart is the second Baptist Generals record and it’s coming out on May 21, 2013. This is exceedingly excellent news. And we hope that on hearing a new song from this record, it will be just as immediately apparent to you as it was to us: Jackleg Devotional to the Heart is worth the wait. Please listen to the brand new track, “Dog That Bit You”, and welcome The Baptist Generals back; they’re sounding better than ever.
