Having been on a musical roller-coaster over the course of their career as musicians, it was awesome to see one of Louisville’s favorite alt-rock-hip-hop-country bands perform. They opened their set with an instrumental version of Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man” and then right as you thought they were about to cover the song, Tuck, Dylan, and Demi ran onstage and led the band right into their own song “One Shot.” “Wow,” I thought to myself. These guys rock more then they rap. They even took time out to wish they’re mama a happy birthday. See, they’re good southern boys.

At their post-show press-conference the VilleBillies announced an up and coming 3rd album with a yet-to-be-determined release date, but possibly by fall. As they joked about they’re own slight dysfunctionality as a band, they hinted the possible album title name as being Dysfunctional Family.

The guys also commented on their recent audition and filming for their own reality TV show, which was to be titled “The Beverly VilleBillies.” In short the band described the entire process as the producers wanting to mis-represent their persona in a negative way. As Demi explained it, “If reality TV was actually ‘reality TV’ then we could have done the show. But it wasn’t and we said no.”
