Ever wondered what country music would sound like on speed?

We are excited to share ‘Prairie Fire’, a new song by Cow Punk band Wood Chickens, who sound not that different from some of the Meat Puppets, Mojo Nixon, and Dead Milkmen more country moments.

Formed in the tiny town of Milton, Wisconsin, Wood Chickens is a cowpunk band that serves a spicy, extra caffeinated blend that draws inspiration from country-western, psychedelia and punk from across the decades.

Started by high school comrades Alex Reilly and Griffin Pett, Wood Chickens soon moved to Madison in 2013 to escape the monotony of life in the small farming community. In the spring of 2015, they were joined by a new drummer, the eccentric Justin J. Johnson, whom had just returned to his home state of Wisconsin after touring with a Nashville-based rockabilly act.

To date, Wood Chickens have self-released several albums worth of material and have releases with various indie labels across the United States. Through Big Neck Records, the prolific trio shows no signs of slowing down and will be releasing their 2nd LP ‘Well Done!’.
