NEW RECORD RELEASED!! Summer 2009 News June/July
The new SHB record “Something’s Wrong/Lost Forever” has been released!! Almost 3 years since the last full release, “Graveyard Shift”, and 2 years in the studio, the new record “Something’s Wrong/Lost Forever” is finally available in your local records stores and at www.scottbiram.com. It has been released on CD, Vinyl LP, and digital download. You can hear a couple samples on both www.scottbiram.com and www.myspace.com/scotthbiram.
If you haven’t heard from Scott H. Biram or you’re wondering why he canceled his April tour of USA and Canada… I slipped and fell in the rain at a gas station in South France after 6 weeks on the road and 10 countries. They had to put a rod in my lower left leg. Now combined with my 2003 wreck, I have rods through the center of my bones in both legs, plates in my left knee and right arm and approxiamtely 20 screws throughout. I’ve been trying to heal up for the last 2 months. I didn’t hesitate, however, to start booking a make-up tour as soon as I got a chance. I leave for the Western USA in a couple days and start the tour off in Colorado on Friday. I’ll be in the Midwest and North East USA and Canada in July/August, as well as quite a few Texas and Louisiana dates in between or shortly after. I hope to see you all out at some shows!!
March/April dates postponed due to broken leg...
So I just got back from Europe. Last day of a 6 week tour of Europe I slipped at a gas station in South France and broke my leg. I have a compund fracture. I unfortunately have to cancel all of my March and April 2009 dates except during SXSW Festival in which I will only be playing an “unplugged” set. Sorry about this. My western USA tour in May/June is stll on however. We are already working on re-scheduling the March/April dates. Most likely the same routing as before so see you then..Again, I apologize for having to cancel, but I need to let this ol’ stompin’ leg heal.
I broke my fucking leg again!! (In Europe this time)
March 4th 2009:
6 weeks, 10 countries…..the last fucking show of a European tour of
England, Ireland, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Slovenia, Croatia and Italy.
We pulled into a gas station in South France on our way to Orleans from
Montpellier. It was raining. We pulled into a station just outside of a little town called Milau I think. I stepped out and started grabbing trash out of the back to clean the van up a bit. I dropped a trash bag and tried to grab it before the wind rushed it away. I tried to step on it with my left foot and slipped. I kinda laughed and said “whoa!” and stepped down with my right onto the gas pump island. The floor was tile and wet.. so my right foot slipped. My right was up on the island sliding and my left was down on the ground up against the curb. As I fell forward with all my body weight, I was still kinda laughing at myself for eating shit… Then I heard the snap and felt my lower left leg go jelly and bend in a way that it had never bent before…
I knew before I hit the ground that my leg was broken….It was the leverage of my left leg planted up against the curb that made it snap over the edge of the curb. I hollered “I broke my leg” several times and laid down on the pump island with my broken leg hanging off the edge sideways for a minute. Justin was like “let me see” and when we pulled my sock back you could see the bone wanting to push through the skin.
I laid back and they called an ambulance. After a minute the pain got better and I started shaking from the cold and shock.. It was near freezing and I was laying on the cold concrete. Then I just shook my head and said “C’est la vie.” I laughed and started yodeling real fast.
It sucked. It hurt really bad. I was at the hospital at least 2 hours before they gave me anything or took me into surgery. They put a rod and 4 screws thru the center of my bone in my lower left leg. I already had one in my upper right as well as 8 screws in my left knee and a plate with 6 screws in my right arm and 3 screws in my right foot from my wreck in 2003.. So, yeah, fuck that shit.
Here I am doing the same shit I did 6 years ago. fuck it!
Scott H. Biram News Jan 2009
BIG EUROPEAN TOUR AND NEWS!!
ENGLAND, IRELAND, FRANCE, BELGIUM, HOLLAND, GERMANY, SWITZERLAND, SLOVENIA, CROATIA, ITALY
First off, I finished my new record! It took me about a year and a half.
With all the touring I’ve been doing in the last few years, it’s been hard to find the time to record. I just had to find time in the cracks between tours to do it. It’s done! The title will be “Something’s Wrong/Lost Forever” and will be available in the US hopefully right around June. It’s going to be mastered next week on Jan 19th. My old art professor and accomplished artist and graphic designer, Mark Todd, is currently working on the cover art. We’re trying to get all the little things worked out so I can turn it in just before I leave for this Euro tour. Some of the songs included on the album are
“Sinkin’ Down”, “Still Drunk, Still Crazy, Still Blue” and “Judgement Day”.
The Black Diamond Heavies appear on a cover of Muddy Waters’ “I Feel So Good” written by Big Bill Broonzy, and John Meyers of The Black Diamond Heavies appears on the SHB original “Hard Time”.
Anyway, I’m hittin’ the old Euro road again for the 9th time in 3 years starting on Jan 24th in old London town. I’ll be with my good buddy and sidekick US Justin, and we’ll be layin’ all the bullshit down for ya nice and smooth. Hope you can make it out. Come here some of the new sounds of Scott H. Biram!! Some more dates are to be added to this tour!
I’ll also be attending SXSW festival again in my home city of Austin, TX.
Keep an eye out for the dates on www.scottbiram.com and www.myspace.com/scotthbiram. You can also look at www.bloodshotrecords.com and www.billions.com.
