Ready for some goosebump-inducing heavy groove? We thought so! Enter Houston, Texas rockers Wellborn Road and the debut of their brand new video for the ripping single “Reprieve”. The independent foursome have been kicking around since 2005 and have worked their way to the top of the local rock/metal scene thanks to their raw and uncompromising tunes. Three albums in and there’s no sign of these cats letting up…
Following their sophomore recording, Pain Hate Redemption, the Lone Star State favourites dropped their third release, the From Silence to Strength EP on December 9th, 2017, via Lone Star Metal Records. The continued evolution of and dedication to their sound has already afforded the band slots supporting the likes of Skinlab, Shattered Sun, Drowning Pool, Buckcherry, Pop Evil, Taproot, Powerman 5000, and many more.

“This video was shot in Bryan, TX at a little known place called Revolution’s. We wanted to capture the incredible energy that the Brazos Valley has always had in a first person point of view to showcase a scene that few know about.. Musically, ‘Reprieve’ is our homage to a sludgy, swamp sound with a steady pummeling that leaves you exhausted. Without breaking down the lyrics too much, the song is about the give and take in any situation and the limits that can be crossed.”
