Hot off the back of their UK tour, London based hard rock outfit, Dead Man’s Whiskey released a new single and video yesterday (Fri 13th April 2018). The single, Make You Proud, is taken from their acclaimed debut album, Under The Gun.
Make You Proud is a heartfelt message from singer, Nico Rogers, to his Mum following a serious health issue. Nico, explained, “When my Mum was diagnosed with cancer I realised that this powerful, beautiful women who had raised me wasn’t actually indestructible and frankly it scared the hell out of me. Now that she is, thankfully, recovering I wanted to make something permanent for her, a reminder that I am grateful for and humbled by her love for me. Some small way of showing her, in the only way I know how, that everything I work for is for her, essentially, to make her proud.”
Dead Man’s Whiskey have recently secured a slot on this year’s Ramblin Man Fair Rising Stage via a public vote, won Classic Rock’s Track of the Week and been flagged as ‘One’s To Watch’ on Planet Rock Radio.
