Gearhead Records has signed Reno, Nevada based country act Hellbound Glory. The band's new album Scumbag Country will be released by the label on April 29th. Label head Michelle Haunold discussed the band, an atypical signing for a label famous for garage punk music from bands like New Bomb Turks, the Hellacopters and the Hives. She stated "Some of the long–standing Gearhead fans might be a bit shocked when they hear this release, but when you really break it down, the band and their brand of outlaw country fits right in with the more aggressive punk and rock n' roll that I've released."
The four piece Hellbound Glory formed in 2004 and has toured with acts like Hank III, the Supersuckers, David Allen Coe, Wayne Hancock, Heavy Trash and BR549. They've been playing in support of their self–released debut full length.
