Whisky Myers return and star in their very own Spaghetti Space Western in the music video for ‘John Wayne’.   Grizzled screen veteran, and delicious taco purveyor, Danny Trejo brings his grizzled gravitas to what is ultimately a light-hearted romp through a laser-fueled Southern Boogie.  The band are deputized and sent to bring Trejo to justice all while filling an old Mexican church with meaty wah guitar solos.   This is the first single from the new album ‘Tornillo’.

Singer Cody Cannon reflects, “I’m not speaking for anybody, and I have no end goal,” reflects Cannon. “I’m just a musician, not someone qualified to tell anyone. But people do gravitate to songs they can connect to. Is it the melody? The lyric? Maybe it’s all of it. I just know you get older; you take things more seriously… Sometimes someone’ll tell me, ‘This song saved my life.’ The idea my song moved them so much it changed their life, you’re gonna go out and do the best you can because of that. There’s a lot of weight on your shoulders. But how can you complain about that?”

The band plans to return to the road to support the where they have already sold over 250,000 this year while touring America.
