RRR and PBS Radio Feature Album of the Week upon release

OPELOUSAFRIED - Second Studio Album

Released 13 Feb 2024

What is this? Is it rock, blues, or something entirely else? Does it even matter - I don’t know. However, what I am certain of is that this album is good - damn good!! Oh, and yes, it rocks and rolls - incredible stuff. Album of the year contender? Gee, and it’s only February!

Neil Rogers, The Australian Mood 3RRR-FM

Melbourne’s swamp-blues powerhouse Opelousas are back in the saddle with their much anticipated second album OPELOUSAFRIED, taking listeners on a captivating journey through a dramatic landscape filled with swaggering songs. Steering the posse from the production chair is ARIA award winning singer-songwriter-guitarist Jeff Lang with his monumental command of all things audio.


Following on from their award-winning 2019 debut Opelousafied, the new album raises the stakes even higher. Opelousafried showcases a further evolution in the interplay between Kerri Simpson’s extraordinarily visceral vocals and powerfully raw guitar, Anthony “Shorty” Shortte’s hypnotic grooves and swamp-soaked percussion and Alison Ferrier’s menacing electric guitar, keening amplified fiddle and sultry vocal tones. Opelousafried was released on Fat Tuesday, 13 February 2024.
