Hey Everyone! Our new album, Revelation, is out now and getting rave reviews. Have you picked up your copy yet? If not, you can purchase the CD at all indie music stores, Barnes & Noble, assorted Best Buys and WalMart (please note that the CD is not carried at Target). Or you can always download the album at iTunes or order from Amazon Here's what their saying: While it might be tempting to categorize the music from this band of brothers as some kind of Latin rock hybrid, in truth, that would be underestimating Los Lonely Boys’ true prowess. Some seven albums on, they’re dabbling in a multitude of distinct genres, from south of the border ballads to the kind of relentless rock ‘n’ roll tailor made for the stadium circuit. With a heady mix of pop, R&B, reggae, country and blues tossed in for good measure, Los Lonely Boys have shown their mettle when it comes to scaling the charts and wooing those audiences that can fuel that ascent. - Blurt Revelation is certain to bring fans old and new to the Los Lonely Boys sound, and by the time the gently rocking tones of ‘Everything About You’ fade, there will be plenty wanting to start the album over. Sure to grow with time, this album is a true slice of quality for lovers of soulful, blues-laden, rock ‘n’ roll – and what’s not to like about that? - Pop Culturez It's freshness proves that ten years after their 2004 breakthrough, the band is as lively as ever and, in some sly subtle ways, better than ever too. 4 Stars - All Music Guide Check out the awesome lyric video to "Don't Walk Away" Stay tuned for more news regarding SXSW, Pledge Music and Lonely Boys vinyl!! Thanks for being a fan and for supporting our new record. Hope to see you all out on the road.

10. “Rule the World” – Los Lonely Boys (from the album Revelation) - The big, bad blues of Los Lonely Boys kicks the hinges off “Rule the World” and demands votes to get them the crown. The music stomps the message into your skull with electric blues somewhere between Jimi Hendrix and ZZ Top. Los Lonely Boys up the ante by turning the amp volume knob to push past eleven and coming to rest somewhere around seventeen or eighteen. Listen and buy “Rule the World” by Los Lonely Boys from AMAZON or iTunes ALT ROOT TOP TEN SONGS OF THE WEEK - 02-19-14 thealternateroot.com Dedicated to the advancement of American Roots music across the globe.

By CHRIS GRAY (Houston Press) Many fans thought Los Lonely Boys were a lucky band right out of the gate, and they were right. Henry, JoJo and Ringo, the Garza brothers from San Angelo, grew up playing music with their father and had a massive hit their first time out of the gate with "Heaven," a soulful ballad crystallizing their "Texican rock and roll" sound that cracked the Billboard Top 20 in 2004. It charted even higher in more specialized formats. Although the Garzas never quite reached such lofty chart heights on their subsequent releases, their power-trio structure recalled past greats like Cream, the Jimi Hendrix Experience and of course Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, so they quickly won a loyal following among guitar geeks with a taste for Texas blues, a sizable fan base they retain to this day (especially in the Southwest). At the same time, playing up their Latin roots placed them as natural heirs to the Santana/Los Lobos tradition, a style that truly blossomed on 2011 album Rockpango! But Los Lonely Boys didn't have a clue just how lucky they were until one night last February in Downey, Calif. According to bassist/singer Jojo Garza, the band had just played a show at the Downey Theatre and was greeting fans when he heard a sudden, mysterious thud. In his rush to connect with his audience, guitarist/singer Henry Garza had not noticed the open orchestra pit and fallen several feet to the theater floor. "I thought a speaker had fallen from the ceiling or something," Jojo says. "I start talking about it too much [and] I start getting into it; I start having flashbacks, man." Henry sustained serious injuries, particularly to his back, that have required months of rehabilitation and limited his ability to work on Los Lonely Boys' new album, Revelation (released today). Jojo says being so close to his brother's accident and being unable to help him was "horrific," but the band is drawing strength from Henry's recovery. "Man, we're just happy to have him now," he says. "He's doing a lot better. He's slowly building up the muscles, getting stronger. It's just a blessing to have my brother alive." Henry's injury did make finishing Revelation a little tricky, Jojo admits. He says the band had finished a good bit of the record before the fall, and that he and drummer/singer Ringo finished what parts they could while Henry was recovering, and Henry would add as much as he was able when he was able to muster the strength. "But thank God we got it done over a period of time," says Jojo. "It was some good spurts and bad spurts, but but we took advantage of the times he was feeling really strong and got in to finish it up. We're really lucky that we got it done." Three songs came entirely after Henry's fall, Jojo notes: "Give a Little More," a plea to remember the important things in life set to a confident reggae-rock groove (one lyric is "If your brother falls down/ You've got to lend a helping hand"); "Familia," an acoustic-based statement of solidarity; and "Dream Away," which couples an always-stay-positive message to some nifty fretwork from Henry. Throw in a couple of potential mainstream singles, "There's Always Tomorrow" and "Can't Slow Down," and arguably the hardest-rocking song in their entire catalog ("Rule the World"), and Revelation is scarcely the work of a band that peaked too soon. But it is definitely the work of a group that knows it has crafted a distinctive sound and continues to refine it. Having mentors like Santana, Los Lobos and Willie Nelson to call on for advice on whether their songs fit that "Los Lonely Boys sound" doesn't hurt, but the Garzas have been at this long enough they're also pretty confident keeping their own counsel. Revelation is the second album to be released on their own LonelyTone imprint, which is distributed by Austin's Playing In Traffic. Not that they necessarily want to stop there. "Well, you know, there's always the hope to get another song on the radio and TV, and get it noticed by a LOT of fans," the bassist admits. "But man, the real, honest truth is that we focus on the music itself, and I think the rest of it works itself out." Los Lonely Boys make an in-store appearance 6 p.m. Wednesday, January 22 at Barnes & Noble Town & Country, 12850 Memorial Dr., 713-465-5616. The band returns to play the Spring Crawfish Festival May 4.
