It’s an incredible accomplishment when a rock band has been successful enough to reach the 25-year mark since the release of their first album. And this year, raunchy southern rockers Jackyl have accomplished this feat, and are celebrating with an appropriately-titled compilation, 25, which drops July 28th through Mighty Loud Records.

The 18-track set (which can be preordered via the band’s official site, (jackyl.com) features such Jackyl radio hits as Down on Me, The Lumberjack, Push Comes to Shove, and Favorite Sin, as well as two previously unreleased tracks – a live rendition of Redneck Punk, as well as a cover of Black Oak Arkansas’ Hot and Nasty.

“At the time we first hit the scene, we were told by quite a few interviewers and fans that we sounded like a cross between Black Oak Arkansas and AC/DC,” explains Jackyl. “While we was very familiar with AC/DC, we were not with BOA. We went back and listened, and were blown away – so much so, that we recorded a cover of one of their most kick ass tunes, Hot and Nasty, which is now finally getting its release on this comp.”

“With this compilation, we are celebrating 25 years of Jackyl rock n’ roll – the fundamentals of rock n roll,” adds Jesse. “And beware – we are not slowing down anytime soon.”

First bursting upon the scene with their self-titled, platinum-certified debut album in 1992, Jackyl has made a name for themselves as a killer live band that delivers night after night, and has continued to offer up good old fashioned blues boogie over the years, as evidenced on such subsequent albums as 1994’s gold-certified Push Comes to Shove, all the way to their most recent release, 2016’s Rowyco.

    Big fan of Jackyl! I’ve seen them a couple of times, and they always bring it! They are a fun band that don’t take themselves too seriously. I think of them as a redneck version of AC/DC. Congratulations to them on 25 years of good time music!
