Before breaking up in 2005, the Cowslingers had made a name for themselves as a prominent local cowpunk band with a huge fanbase. The group created its unique sound by drawing from Link Wray, the Cramps, Johnny Cash and Jason & the Scorchers.

Now, the band has announced the release of a new album, Real Big Rooster. It’ll play a few dates to support the album and will perform at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 5, at the Beachland Ballroom. The band has also booked gigs in Columbus and Cincinnati.



The group hasn't issued a new studio album since 2005's Bullseye and has only played a handful of shows since 2005; during the last decade, singer Greg Miller and drummer Leo Walsh have devoted themselves to their band, Whiskey Daredevils.

For the new album, the band recorded at Detroit’s Rust Belt Recording with frequent Whiskey Daredevil collaborator John Smerek. The Blasters-like “Cindy” features a walking bass line, twangy guitars and hiccupping vocals while the gritty “Waitin’” has more of a punk feel to it. The album represents a fine return to form.
