It's a Whole New Life for Reverend Horton Heat, and Jim Heath and company are celebrating it on the new album of that name. The title refers partly to the configuration of the Heat band, Heath tells Billboard. He and longtime bassist Jimbo Wallace have added not only a new drummer, RJ Contreras, but also a piano player, Matt Jordan, which has broadened the palette the group is operating from on the album's 11 tracks -- mostly spirited rockabilly, including a cover of Elvis Presley's "Viva Las Vegas," with a side trip to N'awlins in "Tchoupitoulas Street."

Reverend Horton Heat released their first album, Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em, on Sub Pop in 1990, just as grunge was getting its teeth into the world. However, unlike their plaid-clad contemporaries they played psychobilly and rockabilly music and dressed as if the ‘50s had never ended. They have have a rich history of touring, firstly on the coattails of Motorhead and Sex Pistols whilst giving a leg-up to bands such as Soundgarden, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails and White Zombie. Their 12th album and first in four years is Whole New Life.
