Biography

The Hellbenders are a great spaghetti western / country / cowpoke combo featuring 3/4 of renowned surf/instro band The Volcanos. After releasing two great CD’s for Estrus Records, along with a whole bunch of 7”ers, most of the band decided to do a “side-project” and came up with this fabulous 21 track release. Featuring 9 instrumental songs, 8 vocal songs and 4 short instrumental interludes, this is great listening for fans of The Sadies, Ennio Morricone, Friends Of Dean Martinez, Johnny Cash and Calexico.

Here’s what the press has said about ‘Today We Kill…Tomorrow We Die’:

Well, all I can say is, it’s about time! There’s just nothing better than when a great band finally gets around to their debut CD and it’s easily as good as I could hope for. The Hellbenders have been teasing us with brilliant spaghetti western surf for a long time. Now, a full album of brilliant music, surfed and polished and sequenced like an Italian soundtrack release. The band includes a number of very cool vocals with rich surf-spaghetti guitars too, including “All I Can Do Is Cry,” Johnny Cash’s “Big River,” the delightful “A Gringo Like Me,” “Run, Billy Run,” “The Ghosts Of Boot Hill,” “Gunfight At The O.K. Corral,” and “On The Run”
