The kings of “red dirt metal,” Texas Hippie Coalition (THC) have announced a string of US tour dates in support of their latest release, ‘Rollin’’. The first single, “Pissed Off and Mad About It” is off to a stellar start at Metal radio, already cracking the Top 10 on CMJ’s Loud Rock Albums chart. The video premiered online yesterday on AOL and can be seen below.

Not only has the single been added at both commercial Active Rock stations and on Metal programs across the country, including Sirius/XM Satellite Radio’s Liquid Metal channel, and Music Choice Metal, but it has also been embraced by influential nationally-syndicated programs such as Full Metal Jackie and it will be highlighted on HardDrive the weekend of August 28th.

The band has just returned from some overseas festival performances, including the Bospop Festival in Amsterdam. To see some behind the scene footage of their travels, CLICK HERE. THC recently performed at the Rock N America Festival and sat with Eddie Trunk for an interview and an update on the band.
