You might remember from 2007, FOX’s short-lived, American Idol-inspired The Next Great American Band TV series. The highlight of every episode was the spirited, country-flavored performances of the Clark Brothers, who went on to be named the show’s winners. Legal setbacks and record company mergers delayed their promised album deal prize, but now the group is back with a new name, Sons of Sylvia, and a new album.


To help promote Revelation, which was released in the US this month, their official website is offering a free MP3 download of “John Wayne”, a possible future single. Tinted with the western sounds of the mandolin and dobro guitar playing that made them stand out on television, “John Wayne” is a fierce ode to chasing down the one you love, like John Wayne would have done in one of his movies. Starting slow, it gradually builds up to an intense, fiery chorus that has the passion of a revivalist preacher.
