Tour dates for July / August are developing - check the tour section
for confirmed dates.
As in the past, shows will be formatted into multi-sets. Up first The Damn Band will play around two hours for the Country/Hellbilly set, after which will then be approximately 30 minutes of Hank's project simply known as "3" - with which he released the Punk music inspired, "A Fiendish Threat". After those two sets, the stage lights will dim as Attention Deficit Domination (A.D.D.) cranks out some heavy Doom Metal for about an hour or so, then around another 30 minutes will be dedicated to the 3Bar Ranch/Cattle Callin' set. Set lists will vary on any given night and all sets will feature Hank 3 on vocals and guitar.

The songs on "Ramblin' Man" and any other compilation records released in the past or in the future by Curb Records contain NO NEW MUSIC and all tracks on these records are readily available to the fans through other means.
Hank 3 recently finished taping an appearance on The Marty Stuart Show. As of now the show is scheduled to be broadcast on May 17 - so get those recorders set!
This marks the second appearance for Hank on Marty's show, the first time was 2010. Hank and Marty are long time friends, and he also appeared on Marty's 2012 release, entitled: "Nashville, Volume 1: Tear The Woodpile Down".

Happy New Year...
There will be some down time for a short period as Hank works on a side project recording. Also in the mix for early in the year (hopefully sometime in February) Hank will be releasing two new videos - each one from his last two albums. One video will come from the last Country record entitled, "Brothers Of The 4X4", and another from his own brand of Rebelcore Punk music, that was entitled, "A Fiendish Threat". After both the video releases and side recording project are completed, a tour will follow - there are no tour dates set at this time.
Again, much respect to everyone who came out to the shows this past year, everyone who bought merchandise, and gave support. As always, keep an eye on the Tour section here, the Facebook page, and Twitter. As tour dates are confirmed, that is where you will find more info.
