The Skinny: David Hudson (vocals), Chris Llewellyn (guitars/harmonica), Brian Cohen (keys/bass) and Christian Thierbach IV (drums/harp) will build on the success of their 2014 debut EP In The Unknown with their “dirty, bluesy, swagger-infused rock and roll” sound.

Hudson – the emerging Los Angeles-based four-piece rock ‘n’ roll band – have announced that their five-track sophomore EP Cast Out will be released independently Wednesday, October 21 via iTunes and the band’s website. Fans will be able to pre-order the EP on iTunes beginning Monday, September 21. The EP’s lead single/title track can be streamed just above!

“We wrote ‘Cast Out’ after a very traumatic, and in the end, unfair situation that left us feeling a lot of anger towards the perpetrators,” says Llewellyn. “We felt as if the justice system had let us down, and that the guys who did it felt zero remorse and got away with some terrible crimes. As a reaction, we responded from our hearts with this song rather than stooping to their level and getting revenge. We want our audience to realize that taking a negative experience and using it as fuel for something positive is the best route to take. This song has such a strong message and meaning for us that we decided it was the best title for our EP.”
